Lofrans was founded in 1966 in Monza, Italy, with a determined focus: to design and manufacture the highest quality anchor windlasses at competitive pricing.  Over the years, this commitment, along with technical expertise and innovation, has led to impressive results.

Through innovative engineering and advanced design, Lofrans maintains its leadership position in the market.  Robust construction has made their solid horizontal models popular for heavy-use vessels such as charter boats, world cruisers and live-aboards.  Lofrans vertical models offer contemporary styling and the latest features.  Keyless mainshafts handle any unforeseen shock loads, unlike traditional keyway design.
