Bridon-Bekaert The Ropes Group (BBRG) was formed on 29th June 2016 by the merger of Bridon Group with the steel ropes and advanced cords businesses of Bekaert. Together, an unrivalled partnership was created, capitalising on over 300 years of combined expertise and technology leadership.
Prior to the merger in 2016, Bridon and Bekaert were already business partners. Not only did they source steel wire, ropes and half-products from one another, they were also involved in an important joint venture many years ago.
During the recession of the early 1930s, trade tariffs were put on imports of steel wire to the UK. In response, the Belgian steel wire maker Tréfileries Leon Bekaert needed to set up a UK factory to produce wire. Bekaert set up production in association with Templeborough Rolling Mills Ltd, a local supplier of wire rods, and in 1933 it joined with British Ropes Ltd and the United Steel Companies Ltd to form Tinsley Wire Industries Ltd (TWIL) with a factory at Tinsley in Sheffield.
