When you're out on the water, you want the peace of mind that comes with knowing your engine is reliable. At ARCO Marine, we engineer and manufacture the highest quality replacement marine parts with this idea in mind.
At ARCO Marine, we understand that replacement parts need to meet the quality and output of the original part they are replacing. But, we don’t stop there. At ARCO Marine, we engineer and manufacture our replacement parts to exceed the quality of the original part whenever possible.
One common misunderstanding is that replacement parts are only equal to or less than the quality of the original part. At ARCO, we strive to engineer replacement parts that are more durable and more reliable than the original.
So, how do you build a replacement part that meets or exceeds the quality and reliability of an original part? Well, you start with advanced engineering, quality materials, a precision manufacturing process, and you don’t cut any corners along the way.
First, our engineers find ways to improve designs of original parts. Next, we use stainless steel to build our parts, which provides both durability and corrosion resistance. For the exterior of our parts, we use a two layer coating process designed to prevent water intrusion and corrosion. The first layer is a zinc based primer. The second layer is a baked on, epoxy powder coating layer. This finish provides maximum protection against water intrusion and corrosion. In some parts, like our inboard starter, the baked on epoxy powder layer is also utilized to protect the inner workings of the part from water intrusion or moisture exposure.
A common misunderstanding is that original equipment is flawless, perfect equipment. Well, that is simply not the case. At ARCO, we take a number of steps to design replacement parts that exceed the quality and reliability of the original parts. In many cases, our engineers are able to improve the design and simply build a better part. Our number one priority is reliability, and that gives our customers the peace of mind they are looking for.
