Peter and Olaf Harken founded Harken more than 50 years ago in the Great Lakes region of Wisconsin. Since then it has grown and from a small laboratory born "in the backyard" it has become an international reality present all over the world. Harken products are a "must" in events such as the America's Cup, Ocean Race, Vendée Globe, the Olympics, Maxi and TP52 circuits and in the vast majority of one-design classes.
Harken blocks, rails, winches, winders and hydraulic systems are now on board all kinds of boats: from the smallest drift to the largest megayacht. From the custom ones, to those made in large series.
Harken Inc. has its headquarters in Pewaukee, Wisconsin where there is also one of its two production units, the second is in Limido Comasco, a few kilometers from Como. In the USA is concentrated the realization of the deck equipment, in the second one, Harken Italy, that of the winches. With a careful look towards the future, Harken has built modern and efficient plants with the consequent assumption not only of ownership, but also of production responsibility and quality control. Using sophisticated equipment and highly trained technical staff, optimizing workflows and exploiting the constant influx of innovative ideas coming from its engineers, Harken has always shown a constant growth in the market, the ability to adapt positively to changing economic circumstances.
Both the U.S. headquarters and Harken Italy headquarters are ISO 9001:2015 certified.
The distribution network is present in 48 countries, while the commercial companies directly controlled by Harken Inc. are based in Australia, France, New Zealand, Poland, Sweden, England and the United States (Rhode Island, California and Florida).
In 2019 and 2020 Harken made the first products dedicated to the industrial world: CMC Clutch is a multifunctional equipment for rope ascent and descent operations; Ninja is the first single rope foot elevator with double cam, based on our nautical choke Cam-Matic. In addition, Harken Industrial recently completed strategic operations with the acquisitions of Illinois-based Elevated Safety and Cascade Rescue in Sand Point, Idaho.
