Gleistein and Lindemann bring Frisch on board as a strong partner

... and access to Gleistein’s high-quality yacht ropes becomes even easier.


Following joint discussions, three internationally active companies decided on their strategic partnership today: for the greatest possible customer benefit through wider availability and even better advice on high-quality Gleistein ropes.

Gleistein has been developing and producing technically unsurpassed rope solutions for all on-board applications since almost 200 years. Wholesaler Robert Lindemann KG from Hamburg has been representing Bremen's oldest family-owned company for 20 years and convinces as a reliable, honest partner through superior logistics and high availability of all products in the international market. Now, the system provider Peter Frisch GmbH stands in line with the two companies as a new partner. Frisch specialises in technologically demanding projects and works closely with ambitious sailors and racing syndicates. The unbeatable consulting competence is based on personal advice from enthusiastic sailors and corresponds well with Gleistein’s motto "More than Ropes". The new partner also brings a large number of multipliers and thus even better availability: so there is no longer any way around the world's best ropes on the market!

Hubertus Jürgens, Managing Director of Peter Frisch GmbH, explains: "With Gleistein we have the technologically most innovative premium manufacturer of yacht ropes in our product range and an ideal strategic partner for industrial ropes. In the future, Frisch and Lindemann customers will benefit from a competent rope network: development, sales, consulting, and services - from dinghies, cruising, and racing yachts to superyachts. We offer the right solution for all customer needs and look forward to jointly developing Gleistein’s huge potential in the market."

Klaus Walther, Managing Director of Gleistein, says: "We are delighted to welcome Peter Frisch GmbH as another competent and committed distribution partner to complement our proven, long-standing, and successful partnership with Lindemann. We are sure that this will lead to us gaining many more satisfied users of our outstanding quality ropes."

Franz Lindemann adds: "With Peter Frisch GmbH, we have found a strong partner who will help us to sustainably increase the satisfaction of our mutual customers. We look forward to the strategic partnership with Gleistein, Frisch and Lindemann!"
