Arcus Partner with the Best Manufacturers in the World
At Arcus Wire Group, we make strict onsite assessments with all of our suppliers to ensure they manufacture to industry best practices, quality control and safety standards. We also help design and develop stainless wire rope based on our ability to listen and understand our client's needs. For example, Arcus Wire Group were the first to bring 316 wire to Australia, 316 is now the standard. Arcus Wire Group are exclusive distributors of Structural Dynamics “Strudyna” commercial and architectural fittings in Australia, and have in recent times developed hamma™ Regatta, which is now Australia's number one selling yacht rigging Brand. “We started branding our products to help our clients differentiate between our stainless wire rope and the inferior clones in that market that are quite frankly, very concerning when it comes to safety”. A testament to our belief in quality first, Arcus Wire Group are now approaching our 30th year as exclusive distributors for KOS “Korea’s Original Stainless” in Australia and New Zealand. There is simply no peer on the market for KOS wire. We also continue to support Nicopress, Felco, SAHM Splice, Sea Rig and other first-class suppliers that meet ours, and our client's project requirements and standards.
Firstly, AWG is the exclusive distributor of KOS manufactured stainless steel wire rope and strand in Australia and New Zealand, the world’s leading manufacturer of this product. No other company can supply this product locally, although many competitors claim they are able to supply a “similar” product. There is no peer in the market for KOS wire.
Secondly, Arcus Wire and hamma™ are manufactured by KOS using many unique techniques that differentiate the wire rope and strand we supply to our customers from our competitors, namely:
- Using high-quality stainless steel rod sourced from POSCO as the starting material;
- Descaling of the stainless steel rod to remove impurities, which may have attached during transport, prior to commencing production;
- Multiple annealing during the drawing process to ensure wire does not work harden;
- Final wire strand is passed through an ultrasonic bath to remove any impurities that may have attached during manufacture;
- Multiple quality control tests of the finished product.
