Our History

ARC are a true blue Australian company with a history that mirrors the history of this country since 1920. It was in that year that we became the first to produce steel fabricated mesh here in Australia at our Sunshine site near Melbourne.

Over the years we have supplied the steel built into many of our Australian icons such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Tunnel and Opera House, the MCG and Marvel Stadium in Melbourne, the Sydney and Melbourne Airports, Victoria Bridge in Brisbane and Parliament House in Canberra.

ARC steel is in the bones of the roads we drive on, the houses we live in, the buildings we work in, the schools our kids learn in and the iconic landmarks that symbolise Australia to the rest of the world. 

Today, all our steel products remain 100% Australian made with international quality assurance and in compliance with Australian standards.
