Seeking Barbarossa Winch and deck Part suppler

Question, does anyone know who is and how to contact a Barbarossa parts suppler?

My boat has a full complement of Barbarossa deck sail management blocks and sheaves including 13 Winches.

Iím in need of some spare parts bearings for the winches and parts for the deck gear.

Barbarossa an Italy winch and deck gear manufacturing company was bought out about a decade ago by an American company then re-branded then the company was sold off! .

I lost track who now are the owners if any and if spare parts are available for these winches.

Does anyone know if one can obtain Barbarossa winch and deck parts if so where and from whom?

Many Thanks in advance for your input.

SV Skoiern IV

Kryg.

Barbarossa got gobbled up by Harken, but before that Harken winches were made by Barbarossa and simply branded Harken, so many/most parts are interchangeable (I believe Harken still manufactures their winches in Italy at the Barbarossa plant).
