We may seem like the new kid on the block of custom silicone manufacturing, but we’re not.
ARCO® Silicone is a division of Alliance Rubber Company. Undeniably, we have eminently qualified personnel with skills and imaginative talents built on 97 years of rubber compounding and extrusion, and now, custom silicone extrusions. Consequently, silicone extrusions are simply the best next step for us to make in expanding our growth potential to other elastomers. In the same way, we can still offer the highest consistent quality and competitive pricing for custom profile silicone extrusions that are designed to meet your specific need.
"As a 97-year-old, family-owned manufacturing company, we have consistently delivered quality and innovative products to our customers."
A True American Success Story
After almost a century, we are still a family owned business with a rich and distinctive American heritage. What started as a simple, practical, and reliable solution for everyday life has been transformed by our 175 team members into a multi-faceted collection of more than 2,000 products and tools designed for “Holding Your World Together.” Our associates make the difference in our brand. Their attitude and passion for quality of customer service shines. Over 60% of the team has been with the company for over five years, enabling us to make some of the world’s best products, including silicone extrusions, at our manufacturing facility in Hot Springs, Arkansas.
American-Made Silicone Extrusions
Specifically, 94% of our sales are of American-made products that comply with the “Buy American” standards set-aside in conjunction with U.S. government purchases. As a result, consumers who select these products enjoy fresher stock, faster service, better fill-rate and consistent top quality.
Not only do we show American pride through our silicone extrusions, but also this pride is evident when driving by our factory. On October 12, 2016, we dedicated a walkway in honor of our 18 veteran employees and named it Freedom Falls. Freedom Falls is also a tribute to past, present and future veteran associates along with the over one million Americans who gave their lives to keep America free.
Our company has also installed an 80-foot by 40-foot American flag that stands 130-feet tall and can be seen when driving on the 270 bypass. At the top of the flagpole there is a gold ball that each of our 175 employees have signed. The flag is a way of showing how proud Alliance employees are to be working, living and creating innovative products (such as custom silicone extrusions) in this country.
