The H Wichard & Cie Company was created in the Forges De La Croix De Fer factory on the first of May 1919 by Henri Wichard and his associates.
In a nod to modern times, the industrial company was founded on Labour Day itself!

And a labour of love it was, transforming the Wichard Company from a cutlery sub-contractor to a globally renowned equipment manufacturer for the yachting sector and precision part supplier for the mechanical, automotive, aeronautics and medical industries.
The core running through each of these sectors is a shared commitment to quality, and the tool that lets WICHARD achieve it is the forge. This ancient technology has been enhanced and improved by the teams to the point where it has become a byword for quality and reliability.  WICHARD have now reached the level where each of their products is endorsed by the “Safety” label.

Today, Wichard embraces fully modernised equipment and a diverse team of professionals around our Forge. This team handles everything from tools to machining and assembly, all in a strict quality environment sanctioned by 4 ISO certifications (9001, 9100, 14001 and 13485).
It may have taken the company 70 years to transform itself and reach other markets, but the 30 years which followed have seen huge external growth. The Thiernoise Company provided the foundations needed to form a Group of 8 companies, each renowned in their own field and each with their own technical solutions in their own sector. WICHARD is working with steel, stainless steel, aluminium, titanium, composites and carbon, creating products and solutions for the most stringent client demands.

None of this would have been possible without the men and women who have worked and still work within the company. Their hard work has made the impossible possible: world sailing records, solitary odysseys, family world tours, travel to the harshest zones, medical operations, car racing, aeronautics and so many other events that we now take for granted.

All of us at Lindemann are proud to be the German distributor and supply the German sailing sport and industry clients for more than 30 years with high end WICHARD products.

Hooklinker is a mobile all-in-one multi-purpose boathook to make awkward mooring manoeuvres easier. Together with stainless steel spring snap hook, LED flash light, and holder for Boatasy GHOOK, guarantees a complete and quick mooring experience. Depending on whether you are mooring on the buoy, lazy lines, rings, etc., you can easily attach them on its holders.

Hooklinker is a unique accessory adapted to attach Boatasy GHOOK, used for clean transfer of overgrown lazy (mooring) line. Now, picking a lazy line from the pier with connected GHOOK on Hooklinker is easier and safer. GHOOK is mounted on about 2-meter long telescopic hook, and provides and easy lazy line pick up from the pier during the approach to the mooring place. With the simpler connection, the final results are shorter mooring time and cleaner boat and hands.

With Hooklinker you can easily moor also on the buoy, ring, etc.. together with the integrated spring snap hook (carbine). It could be easily fixed into the flexible holder and disconnected once the ring is connected. When you disconnect, the closer automatically locks the entry hole of the carbine leaving the boat securely moored.

High performance LED flash light integrated on it improves visibility during the night or in poor visibility, 24 hours a day.

Its shape and weight have been optimised to give the best results. Hooklinker is light and compact in order for everybody to use it without major efforts directly from the boat deck. Compared to a standard telescopic hook without it, the job is now simplified and faster.

Moorings are now done with less stress and efforts, making Hooklinker an ideal solution also for the less-experienced crew or solo sailors.
