The William Kenyon® Group has been at the forefront of carrier rope technology since rope systems were introduced to the paper industry. Our commitment to leadership and innovation has led us to expand our product range to meet today’s machine speed and safety demands.

William Kenyon® now offers a full range of carrier rope and rope threading systems, to handle your tail threading needs from the wet press through the reel. Once the paper machine is threaded, our slitters will trim the final product for packaging and shipment.

With our full line of products and our technical services and solutions, William Kenyon® truly is Your Single Source For Paper Machine Threading®.
