 Latch and Batchelor is a specialist manufacturer of wire ropes for mining, haulage, structural and general engineering applications. We have manufactured wire rope since 1884 when our company was the first to invent Locked Coil and Flattened Strand Wire Rope for mining applications. Today we supply specialist mining ropes to long standing customers in Brazil, Canada, Zambia, France, Mongolia, UK, Democratic Republic of Congo, Australia and Ghana. The deepest mines in the world have used our ropes from the Goldfields of India and Africa to Nickel mines in the Australian deserts.
