Company Profile

With a 200 year history in UK rope manufacturing, Marlow Ropes have earned an outstanding reputation for quality and technical innovation for pioneering defence and special forces products around the world. This reputation is born out of innovative designs that have been tried and tested in the world's harshest environments and toughest combat zones.

Marlow are known and respected around the world for British design and innovative engineering with products ranging from the pioneering Fast Rope insertion and extraction series, to dynamic ropes such as the well known highly durable  'Black Marlow' abseil rope and the technical collection of heat resistant and high performance ropes.

Marlow's Combat Vehicle Series ranges from tow, winch and recover systems and has been used across the defence industry to aid the recovery of armoured vehicles.  The newest product in this range is the Rhino Tow Rope which has outstanding strength and lightweight benefits, as well as being quick to install and offers a safer option for changeovers. 

With offices in the USA, and a global distribution network, our headquarters in the UK houses our R&D centre and specialist production units and its from here that we manufacture and distribute quality British made products to 100 countries worldwide.

Always look for the Black Marker (registered trademark in UK & Europe) to spot a genuine Marlow rope.
