Tiller Arms

Rudder tiller arms and other marine hardware

Con-Tech is a leader in tiller arms, mechanisms, used to steer boats and other marine hardware. Our tiller arms are custom manufactured by suppliers in China, Taiwan, India or elsewhere, many of whom are ISO certified. Con-Tech marine hardware such as its rudder tiller arms has long been fabricated of stainless steel, as such material helps protect the hardware from corrosion.

Choosing the right hardware is always a key element of boat safety. If the right corrosion-resistant choices are not made at the time of selection, marine hardware may be severely compromised when exposed to the maritime environment.

Stainless steel marine hardware like our rudder tiller arms is highly resistant to rust and less likely less to corrode in saline conditions. High-grade stainless steel marine hardware is preferred in many applications as it may last more than 1000 years.

Why Using Con-Tech Works

Whatever your needs for custom marine hardware, Con-Tech can accurately and quickly quote your job and provide you with a manufacturing plan. What makes Con-Tech different than other outsource manufacturers is our attention to detail and our knowledge of your industry. We are tenacious and thrifty and work exclusively with world-class global parts suppliers to get you the product you need.

Covid 19 increased marine hardware sales and the post-pandemic effects have been equally strong. According to the National Marine Manufacturers Association, sales of all marine products and services including boats rose to 13-year high in 2020 to $47 billion, increasing 9% from the prior year. The boating industry has touted data showing that new powerboat sales are strong, along with sales of pontoon boats, wake sport boats, and jet boats.

The trend has shown enormous potential for the future as first-time buyers are entering the market in record numbers increasing wait times and straining dealer inventories. The EU and U.S. reached an interim agreement in 2021 that prevents the doubling of tariffs on U.S. boats and engines – which also offered encouraging news for marine manufacturers.

Each project begins with Con-Tech listening to your manufacturing needs and product specifications. Then you send us a drawing, a specification or the marine hardware or industrial packaging part you need and we will take it from there.

We convey your specifications to the right global source for your unique application. And Con-Tech will stay with you every step of the way from design, prototype, production, and import to delivery to ensure that there are no unwanted surprises in your global parts supplying experience.
