Lofrans’ was founded in 1966 Monza - Italy and from the very beginning we have pointed our attention on a single product range:
For over 40 years, Lofrans engineers have been dedicated to one single objective: designing and manufacturing windlasses and anchor management solutions which combine top performance, absolute safety and stylish design on deck.
With a wide range of windlass models, Lofrans' boasts an impressive line-up of products covering the needs of boats and yachts from 6 to 50 m (20 to 160 ft).
Lofrans’ was the first to introduce to market products and solutions such as the Automatic Free Fall, the Control Box and also the “plug&play” anchor windlass “Project 1000” that are considered by the end users as a “must” for their vessel.
In the Design dept. we use the most updated CAD software integrated with CAM system so that any conceptual idea can be delivered to a physical component with zero mistakes.
At Lofrans, we believe that durability and performance start with an extremely stringent selection of components: only AISI 316 L stainless steel, marine grade metals and electric motors designed to deliver high torque in all conditions.
