About TIMM ROPES
EUROPEAN ROPE CRAFTSMANSHIP SINCE 1772
At TIMM ROPES, we have developed a passion for innovation back in the eighteenth century, in the heyday of maritime exploration and commerce. That passion, lasting for over 250 years, shows how we see the future of rope, but, most importantly, how we deliver cutting edge products and services.
Since our founding in 1772, we strive to be the ones setting the trends, not just follow them.
Today, TIMM ROPES is a leading provider of high performance ropes and rope solutions worldwide.

ON A JOURNEY FROM HEMP TO HMPE
Rope development and manufacturing has been our passion since the company was established in Norway in 1772.
We have come a long way from the times when hemp was the material of choice in the maritime industry. Today, we focus on developing high performance rope solutions based on Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene fibers.
Today, our proprietary Acera™ rope aims for nothing less than changing the rope dynamics in this highly competitive segment. In fact, we made Acera™ to be stronger than steel at just 1/7 of its weight as well as 1/3 of the same strength polyester rope.
Many decades of rope development and manufacturing has taught us what it takes to make great ropes: durability, abrasion resistance, tensile strength and elongation, but the most important thing is that satisfaction of our clients is strongly tied together with trust for TIMM Ropes.
We bring all this to bear when delivering great performing ropes to our customers.
The continuous drive towards making higher performance ropes has increasingly turned our factory into a test facility. The result is that TIMM Ropes has its own R&D department, including our own engineers and specialists. With support from our R&D, you get expert advice and great solutions.
MAKING THE FAMILY LINE EVEN STRONGER
