Kingfisher Yacht Ropes was established as a brand in 2002 when DSM Group added yacht ropes to its extensive range of ropes and rope related products.

These products are distributed throughout the world from our UK factories in Mirfield, Stourport-on-Severn, and Ipswich. Kingfisher Yacht Ropes is DSM group’s own brand of high performance sailing ropes and equipment. Kingfisher’s ropes have been used on many of the world’s leading racing yachts and dinghies.

By keeping large stocks of our products, DSM are able to complete orders quickly and efficiently. We aim to provide high quality consistent products at competitive prices. Please contact one of our experienced sales team for any questions you may have.

DSM Group have over 30 year’s experience distributing fibre ropes throughout the UK from Mirfield, West Yorkshire where the company’s headquarters remain today. After establishing relationships with large quality manufacturers in Europe, DSM soon gained a reputation for high quality ropes. Many of the relationships with these same suppliers still continue today, allowing our products to remain consistent.

As a family business, DSM continue to expand throughout the 1980s, adding to existing products year on year. During the 1990s founder David Saddington was joined in the business by his two sons, Nigel and Paul; all three still run the company today with the help of many experienced members of staff.

During the 1990s expansion continued, with the opening of factories in the midlands which produces anything from loadstraps to shock cord products, with Covertec in Ipswich producing bespoke canvas products.

Early in 2002 saw the birth of Kingfisher Yacht Ropes. DSM brought this new brand to the market place with great success, so much so that after only 10 years, Kingfisher was one of the most recognisable names for ropes within the UK leisure marine market. In the last decade the Kingfisher Yacht Ropes brand has expanded outside of the UK and we now have more than 300 international partners and stockists across the globe.

Service is the key to DSM’s success story and we promise to keep the same levels of service for all customers in the future.
