Hampiðjan is a world leader in the production and servicing of high-quality fishing gear for trawlers and purse seiners. There are twelve companies within the Hampiðjan group, with 35 branches around the world, from Dutch Harbor in Alaska to Nelson in New Zealand.
The company’s brand is well known throughout the global fishing industry. Gloría, Swan Net Gundry and Cosmos Trawl self-spreading trawls are highly efficient gears that fishermen all over the world are familiar with. DynIce Warps and DynIce Data sensor cables are Hampiðjan products that are in increasingly widespread use due to their unique qualities, including high breaking strain, low weight and outstanding design. Dynet, Advant, Magnet and Utzon trawl netting are produced in a variety of versions for demersal and pelagic gears.
Hampiðjan prides itself on its relentless product development, and among the innovations on display at the Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition are Advant, a stiff, low-diameter Dyneema® trawl netting for pelagic and demersal fishing gears. Advant twines are made using Dyneema® fibres and the name is derived from the word ‘advantage.’ Conventional Dyneema netting on today’s market becomes soft with repeated use, making it less easy to handle and repair on deck. Advant is designed specifically to maximise the stiffness of the netting and the abrasion resistance, plus it has a price that compared favourably to Dyneema netting.
Hampiðjan’s staff will be glad to receive both present and future customers, and to discuss the latest developments in fishing gear and fishing technology.
