Australian-based sailboat hardware manufacturer Ronstan International acquired Frederik Andersen Maskinfabrik, the Danish manufacturer best known for its Andersen Winches.

"Andersen Winches are the perfect complement to Ronstan deck hardware," Ronstan managing director Alistair Murray said in a statement. "The company's experience in winch design and manufacture are a natural extension to Ronstan's expertise in hardware and we look forward to the broader possibilities that we can offer to our customers with the combined product range."

In addition to its manufacturing activities in Australia, Ronstan has been producing specialist sailboat hardware in Denmark since it acquired Frederiksen Boat Fittings in 2001.

Thomas Meyer, currently central manager of Ronstan Denmark Aps, takes over management responsibility for all Danish operations. All Ronstan Denmark and Andersen Winches employees will continue in their current roles, the company said.
