History of the Company

CASAR is an abbreviation for the French term ´Câblerie Sarroise´. CASAR Drahtseilwerk Saar was founded in 1948 by Consul Joseph Verreet. Since its inception, CASAR has stood for innovative product developments, producing the first 8-strand ropes in 1949 when six-strand ropes were the standard. During the decades since, we continue to be the innovator in specialty wire ropes which is verified by our consistent growth over the decades. 

We continually develop new and innovative technologies to improve our products and testing facilities.  Our manufacturing operations have custom engineered monitoring systems which allow us to track the quality of production in real time.  We have established and follow the industry’s most comprehensive testing of products.   Our quality assurance and certified manufacturing processes exceed all global standards, and our consultative approach for developing ropes ensures compliance and performance.  CASAR has a network of international distribution partners in more than 40 countries all over the world.  In 2007 CASAR became a part of WireCo WorldGroup, the world leader in wire and synthetic rope manufacturing.  

As part of the WireCo family, we have access to the world’s largest and most advanced technical team in wire rope.  We also now have the capability to utilize the extensive wire manufacturing capabilities of WireCo to allow for enhanced quality control and supply chain responsiveness. Beyond these factors, WireCo provides the market and financial strength to continue investing in research and equipment to assure CASAR remains the premier manufacturer of high performance crane ropes and underground mining hoist ropes.
