About Hatlapa

Hatlapa is a leading marine equipment manufacturer and has been operating in the shipbuilding industry for over 95 years. With headquarters located a short distance from Hamburg and offices worldwide it is a preferred partner to many companies and boasts a product portfolio well established in the merchant shipping and offshore industries. Its products include air and water cooled compressors, steering gear (ram type, rotary vane and others), as well as a wide range of deck machinery (anchor and mooring winches, stern rollers, capstans, shark jaws and towing pins). As the offshore industry has shown extensive growth in the recent past, Hatlapa has further developed its winch portfolio to meet specific offshore requirements, especially for anchor handling. As an independent company with highly motivated staff who can make decisions quickly, we take pride in our products and foresee a bright future. This is because reliable quality, excellent service and expert product development make Hatlapa unique in the market.

Since its takover by MacGregor, Hatlapa is now a product brand in MacGregor's portfolio. Other product brands are MacGregor, Porsgrunn, Pusnes, Triplex and Woodfield.
