About Alloy Steel International, Inc

Alloy Steel International manufactures and distributes Arcoplate, a market
leading wear-resistant fused-alloy steel plate.  In mining processing
industries, wear is the primary cause of down time, the period of time where
machinery is not in operation because of the necessity of repairs or
refurbishment.  The Arcoplate product line substantially lowers down time and
the resulting lost production.  Arcoplate is widely accepted in the mining and
mineral processing industries to protect a host of fixed plant and mobile
equipment applications.  Alloy Steel International boasts major mining
companies as its clients and services the global market place from its
Australian manufacturing facilities.
