Yale Cordage has a long history of finding solutions and developing industry changing solutions. For decades the mining industry — specifically the underground mining industry — had been relying on wire. This wire was prone to rust. In addition the wire could develop fish hooks and kinks, creating an unsafe working environment for miners.

The mining industry presented the rope industry a challenge to create a safe, strong rope, and Yale delivered. Our line of synthetic mining ropes are a better alternative to traditional wire cable. They’re stronger, safer and lighter. Our industry leading engineers also added a reflective technology that makes them easier to see. For 60 years industries have challenged us to make better ropes and we’ve always been up to the challenge.
