Jackson Trawls, Wire Ropes

Jackson Wire Ropes was established in 1993, specifically in order to service the requirements of our trawling customers. We have the capacity to handle wire requirements from 4mm through to 40mm either by skilled hand splicing or our 600 tonne wire press. We are also stockists of premium Trawl warp.

Many of the UK fishing vessel use Jackson Wire Ropes and we supply the pelagic, demersal and prawn sectors of the industry, having the knowledge, skill and experience to meet their varied requirements.

A further service, which is of great value, is specialist spooling machinery in order to enable modern trawlers to wind on new warps at the optimal tension for calibrating computerised auto-trawl systems.
