Arcus Wire Group has been developing and supplying galvanised & stainless steel wire rope to the marine, industrial and architectural sector across Australasia for nearly 60 years.
The key to our success, we believe, is our focus on knowledge, quality and customer service. Our close-knit team includes some of the world's leading experts in stainless steel wire rope, and we place customer service at the forefront of everything we do.
"We don't just aim to meet your expectations and project requirements; we strive to exceed them while providing remarkable value." David Sheedy, CEO.
We partner with the best manufacturers in the world
All suppliers undergo strict onsite assessments to ensure products are manufactured to industry best practices, quality control and safety standards. We also help design and develop stainless steel wire rope based on feedback from customers and our understanding of their needs.
For example, Arcus Wire Group was the first to bring 316 wire to Australia. 316 is now the industry standard. Arcus Wire Group is the exclusive distributor of Structural Dynamics hamma® commercial and architectural fittings in Australia, and has 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. A testament to our belief in quality first, Arcus Wire Group are now approaching our 35th year as distributors for KOS “Korea’s Original Stainless” in Australia and New Zealand (and 20 years as exclusive distributors). 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 customers' 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 techniques that differentiate the wire rope and strand we supply to our customers from our competitors, namely:
- Multiple annealing during the drawing process to ensure wire does not work harden;
- Multiple quality control tests of the finished product.
- Stainless only factory. Unlike other suppliers, KOS only produce stainless and other exotics like titanium. They do not produce carbon/galvanised wire or wire rope.
