Ronstan has new headquarters

Australia-based Ronstan relocated to a new multimillion-dollar facility in Braeside, located near Melbourne.

This new facility will serve as the company's main worldwide manufacturing operation, as well as its corporate headquarters.

"Ronstan looked hard at the overall operations before making this investment. With 1,500 sophisticated technical products produced and our absolute commitment to quality, the move within the Melbourne area just made sense," operations manager Tim Melville said in a statement.

"We have a really good team of people here in Australia with longevity of knowledge, and we really wanted to have a first-class manufacturing business that we can be proud of and still manufacture cost-competitively to the world market," he added.

Ronstan International is a leading manufacturer of sailing hardware and accessories, including the recently acquired Andersen winch products.
