Arrowhead has grown to be a worldwide leader in core metal inserts for the automotive industry, used in weather-seals, glass run and trim products. Current management purchased the corporation in October of 1985.
Over the past 30-plus years, Arrowhead has grown its market share as well as its capabilities in core metal insert production and supply. Manufacturing both lanced and stamped core metal inserts, as well as solid core inserts, our global capacity now exceeds 800 million feet annually.
In 1996 we vertically integrated operations by adding internal slitting capabilities. In 1999, we opened a new 30,000 sq. ft. addition at our plant and headquarters, growing the facility to 75,000 sq. ft. In 2010, we launched operations in Mexico with our 26,000 sq. ft. facility which houses multiple lance and stretch lines.
