WE popped in to ARB’S Kilsyth facility to see the build process of a bullbar from go-to-whoa. The manufacturing process for the steel bars begins with a flat sheet of steel that’s cut to shape using computer-aided laser cutters.
The steel then works its way down the production line, is bent, cut and welded to shape, before being powdercoated and packaged for delivery.
Steve Sampson said: “We design, develop and manufacture. We do every stage of the process.”
Additional bullbars are also produced at ARB’S Thailand plant, which predominately services ARB’S international market. “The Thai plant is fully owned by ARB, and the quality of the product is no different. We use the same machines, same process. There’s no less quality coming out of overseas than what is produced in Kilsyth,” Sampson added.
