Ronstan New Facility

June 16, 2020

After 15 years at 45 High Point Avenue, Ronstan will be moving its USA headquarters just 2 miles down the road to 1170 East Main Road in Portsmouth, Rhode Island. Ronstan USA is a subsidiary of parent company Ronstan Pty Ltd in Melbourne Australia and manages all USA sales, marketing and importing for Ronstan, Andersen Stainless Steel Winches and Robline Ropes.

Staying local has allowed Ronstan to retain its entire staff and will help ensure minimal disruption to the business. While the move may be small in terms of distance, the larger space is a great step forward for Ronstan allowing room for corporate growth and increased operational efficiency. The new location will have the added benefit of marine industry neighbors including Quantum Sails and Maritime Solutions occupying other units on the same lot.

The change will involve moving all inventory, offices and infrastructure and as a result will require closing of operations on June 26, 29 and June 30. Ronstan will not be processing or shipping orders on these dates. Sales representatives will be available as normal to assist with any inquiries during the closure. The business will begin operation in the new location on July 1, 2020.

“We have been planning for this move for quite some time. The new headquarters offers us many exciting opportunities to grow our business. We are focused on the future” said Scot West, Ronstan’s Managing Director.

Ronstan is based in Melbourne and has 140 employees worldwide. Ronstan has offices in Rhode Island, California and Florida; Indonesia and Vejle, Denmark.

Even in the event of an onboard power failure, a Ritchie Navigation SuperSport Helmsman SS-1002 magnetic compass still works. Plus, when the vessel is moving slowly in fog or while trolling, it can do something a GPS can’t: show the actual heading in real time. As a back-up to modern electronics, it’s a vital navigational tool that belongs on every commercial and recreational boat.
