In 2004 Olaf Wegmann founded the company „Rund ums Tauwerk“ („Around the rope“).
What was originally planned as a one-man operation became gradually a sought-after specialist company. Even then Olaf Wegmann looked back on more than 20 years of experience in the processing of rope. Since then, he has always perfected his abilities and developed his own designs, such as the integrated shock absorber and a rope shackle with an opener, as well as the reinforced sheet-system.
2011 „Rund ums Tauwerk“ opened a small shop at the same address as workshop and office. The first employee opens the business initially three times a week.
2013 „Rund ums Tauwerk“ changed by the entry of the new partner and merchant for wholesale and foreign trade Simon Rothe to „Rund ums Tauwerk – Rothe & Wegmann GbR“.
2014 the website expanded and extended to the online shop. The company is also looking back on its tenth anniversary.
2015 the contract volume exceeds the capacity of the premises. For the first time „Rund ums Tauwerk“ has to increase and move into the Lindenstraße with new shop and workshop space.
2016 „Rund ums Tauwerk“ enters to the jewelery business around the rope. Under the brand name „Gemma Spartum“ high-quality cordage Asseccoires are marketed. In addition, the store brand „OS-Ropes“ is launched.
2018 Due to the constantly growing business contacts beyond the state border, „Rund ums Tauwerk“ is renamed. From 01.02.2018, the webshops and private labels will be managed under the umbrella of „ropetec OHG“.
