Lippmann German Ropes 2017

How it all began…

 In 1850, the master rope maker Friedrich Lippmann, son of a family of linen weavers from Klein Heerde in the Harz region, came to Altenwerder, an island in the Elbe river near Hamburg. He was travelling as a journeyman and “got stuck” here, because he had found a girl he wanted to share his future with. Moreover, the professional outlook seemed especially promising here, with plenty of agriculture, fishery, and Hamburg’s big harbor nearby…

Tradition...

Generations | rope making | new enterprise

Friedrich Lippmann found these conditions favourable for rope manufacture. On August 13th he opened his business. Since then, five generations have continued this tradition, and almost each of them expanded the business with a new factory, and good reasons for doing so. Three generations produced in Hamburg-Altenwerder…

A new generation...

New ideas | experience | commitment

In 1971 textile engineer Klaus Lippmann joined the business. With many new ideas and a deep personal commitment, he led the traditional craft business into the present. In 1982 they left the old workshop in Altenwerder and built the present-day factory with an operational area of over 14,000 square meters...

 

The new factory...

342 metres long | latest methods | Hamburg-Hausbruch

Three generations worked in Hamburg-Altenwerder, and the fourth generation with Klaus Lippmann built the present-day factory at the location Dubbenwinkel in Hamburg-Hausbruch. The new site enables production which combines tradition and passed-on expertise with the newest methods in rope making. Many of the ropes are still being driven out and beaten on the traditional rope walk, measuring 342 meters in length. In 2009, Lippmann Tauwerk (German for cordage) became Lippmann German Ropes...
