Enke Winches - Need Manuals / Parts Diagrams

Google turns up almost nothing. Anyone have any leads on these winches or who might have taken them over?

Thanks

My boat has thirteen Enke winches on board and I've wanted to upgrade one of the halyard winches on the main mast to be self-tailing. Just before we left for Mexico last January, I saw on-line where Enke was going to open a web presence. Obviously, they haven't and I'm probably going to wind up with twelve Enke winches and one Anderson!

Fair winds and calm seas.

What can you tell us about Enke origin and history. I, for one, have never heard of them. Maybe I can ask some of my rigger friends, and hit paydirt for you.

I know very little about these winches, other than being told they were made in the Netherlands or thereabouts, and may have been acquired by Andersen. They appear to be of very high quality, but I'm no expert on winches.
