In 2003 Jakob Rope Systems started the production of its wire rope nets in Vietnam. In 2007, we established our first own factory, which quickly reached its spatial limits as the company grew. In 2019, we forged a new path with the construction of our second factory. Jakob Rope Systems is responding to the environmental impact of a growing industry. The design of our factory is intended to set new standards for industrial architecture.

We also take care of our environment in Vietnam. We use energy and resources as sustainably as possible. Our factory has photovoltaic systems, energy-efficient air conditioning systems and innovative technologies.
Our employees in Vietnam enjoy working conditions that are unique in the region. With a modern infrastructure, break and recreation facilities, further training, fair pay and good social benefits, we are a responsible employer.
In Vietnam we manufacture ropes, nets and stainless steel components. Our manufacture here produces the products Webnet and Frames. We manufacture our stainless steel components in series or project-specific as individual components in order to subsequently pre-assemble them into assemblies.
