About Us

HYE has been producing very high quality blocks, stanchions and stanchion bases since 1954. Our plastic laminated blocks can be found all over the world. Widely used in yachting, this material is also appreciated in many other industries. In addition, HYE manufactures a complete range of standard and offshore blocks in nylon with poly-acetal sheaves that achieve the lowest possible friction. We are proud of the fact that, in 1991, we were the first manufacturers in the world to be awarded the GL (Germanischer Lloyd) certificate for our entire range of blocks. HYE offers a wide range of extensively tested stanchions and stanchion bases, which hold the GL certificate as well. All breaking loads and safe working loads (s.w.l.) used in this website are set by the GL and measured in Newton. (1 daN = approx. 1 kg.)

Since October 2023 we have relocated and move our production facility to Vlissingen in the south of Holland. From our new production location we will continue to produce the high quality block for our customers.
