Optimally designed IHC winches based on extensive application knowledge

Functionality is key in our winch designs. IHC winches deliver maximum performance, because we understand the environment in which the winch must operate. Our long history in both the dredging and offshore industries means we know how to design a winch that is fit for purpose.

We can supply both standard and custom-built winch systems.
