Fatzer — Time-tested Wire Rope Experts


(Sponsored Content) For generations, FATZER has been a leading producer of high-quality ropes for a wide variety of uses. Beginning in 1836 as a rope-making factory in Romanshorn, Switzerland, FATZER has grown to become a trusted source of steel wire ropes for ropeways, rope structures, winches, and other industrial uses. FATZER’s products are found everywhere, from the Mi Teleferico urban ropeway in La Paz, Bolivia to the structural ropes supporting the FIFA-ready roof of Maracanã Stadium in Rio to Overland coal and the track ropes for conveyor belt systems in Australia and South America.

By manufacturing one of the most important elements of numerous ropeway projects, FATZER continues to serve the cable car industry by providing custom solutions and exceptional quality. In 2012, the company moved its production into a brand new purpose-built facility with state-of-the-art equipment.
