Man­u­fac­tur­ing Process

4 x 4 Australia - - Explained -

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.
