About GN Rope Fittings

GN Rope Fittings was founded in1917 by the Bon brothers under the name Smederij N.G. Bon. In 1938 the company was taken over by the Bodegraven brothers and renamed N.V. Nieuwkoopse Stoomsmederij.


In 1960, this company expanded by merging with Grofsmederij Uithoorn BV and its new owners, the Vossenberg family Рwho were related to the Bodegraven family. Both companies supplied equipment to the shipping, fishing and offshore industries. After some time, the two companies merged to form Grofsmederij Nieuwkoop BV located in Nieuwkoop.


Today, Grofsmederij Nieuwkoop BV, known internationally as GN Rope Fittings, is one of the leading manufacturers of mooring and lifting accessories in the offshore industry and is still owned by the Vossenberg family.
