About us

The history of Jakob Rope Systems began in 1904 with a small hemp ropery. The first wire ropes were made at the beginning of the fifties. Until the mid-80s, distribution channels were limited almost exclusively to Switzerland.

It was only through the influence of Peter Jakob, today CEO, that market and product expansion were targeted for decisive advancement. In consequence, the sales network gradually grew from Europe to include the entire world. The company has their own sales branches in Germany, France and the USA.

Our sales consultants provide advice, planning, work specifications and project management for customers’ jobs. Thanks to our know-how and experience, we remain flexible so that we are always able to provide you with the best service – in the future as well.
