Our history in US

We have a solid heritage as a supplier of wear solutions based on premium wear steel and overlay products. Below are some milestones that have taken us to the leading position we have today.

Tuscaloosa, Alabama

  • In the late 80’s our former owner retired from a long career in mine maintenance.
  • As a retirement project, our former owner took what he had learned regarding wear applications and began hardfacing products out of his own back yard under the company name S&G.
  • In 1990 our former owner moved S&G into its first large shop and renamed the company Hard Wear.
  • As Hard Wear grew into a major producer of overlay products the old building was expanded multiple times as well.
  • After growing beyond capacity in the late 90’s plans were made to move to a larger more accommodating site.
  • In 1999 Hard Wear Company moved to its current location here on Energy Lane with approximately 40 employees.
  • Over the next 10 years Hard Wear increased its sales and capabilities while making (2) additional expansions to the Tuscaloosa/Northport location.
  • In 2011 Hard Wear was purchased by SSAB, and renamed SSAB Wear Solutions.
  • With the addition of Overlay Plate, Pipe and Pin products to SSAB’s already impressive product line, we will go further than anyone to achieve our vision of a stronger, lighter and more sustainable world.
  • April 2021 – SSAB Wear Solutions acquires Astralloy.
  • October 2023 – SSAB Wear Solutions changes its name to Abraservice.

  • In 1972, Vulcan Steel Corp. changed its name to Astralloy-Vulcan Corporation. This name change became the focal point of an aggressive identity and product promotion program and Astralloy began marketing it’s products to heavy industrial applications in North America.
  • In 1982, Astralloy-Vulcan Corp. was acquired by Harsco Corp., a fortune 300 company of diversified products and services. Soon after, Astralloy-Vulcan became known as Astralloy Wear Technology.
  • In 1999, International Metal Service (IMS), a leading European metals distribution company headquartered in Paris, France, acquired Astralloy Wear Technology. With this acquisition have come many operational enhancements including major investments in the areas of personnel, equipment, warehousing facilities and state of the art computing systems.
  • In 2008 Arcellor Mittal purchased Astralloy and made it a division of Skyline Steel.
  • In 2012 Nucor Steel bought Skyline and Astralloy in a package deal for $605Mil USD.
  • In 2021 Nucor Steel sold Astralloy to SSAB.
