Cortland is a global designer, manufacturer, and supplier of technologically advanced cables, ropes, slings, and strength members. Collaborating with customers, our team uses its experience in high performance materials and market knowledge to transform ideas into proven products.

In 1979, we began as Puget Sound Rope, founded on the premise that high performance fibers and new technology could be used to replace wire rope in 1979. We joined Cortland Cable in 1999, which was incorporated by Dr. E. Scala as a spin-off of the Cortland Line Company.

For almost 40 years, our custom-built solutions have been developed to work in the toughest environments and overcome some of the world’s greatest challenges. They consistently enable our customers to meet the demands of the aerospace, defense, medical, research, subsea, marine, and energy industries.

Cortland is now a part of Actuant Corporation (NYSE: ATU), a diversified industrial company with operations in more than 30 countries.
