New Mobile Precious Metal Refinery Chooses ARCA


MEBANE, NC (April 23, 2013) - ARCA, a worldwide leader in cash automation solutions, today announced that they have integrated the Fujitsu F53 bill dispensing unit into the Assay on Wheels mobile refinery. This is the first time that ARCA has installed the F53 in a mobile environment.

“We are truly excited about the opportunity to participate in the growth of Assay on Wheels,” said Pete Sentowski, ARCA’s Director of OEM Sales. “This is a unique opportunity for ARCA to deploy a cash handling dispenser solution to a new market vertical; mobile precious metals refinery.”

As the first mobile precious metal refinery in the country, Assay on Wheels, had to build their operation without having a proven business model to follow. During the exploratory process, problems arose with the original cash automation supplier and product. Since switching to ARCA, Assay on Wheels has been pleased with the compact design and the technological advances afforded by the F53.

“It’s compact. It’s a lot smaller than the previous units I was using, however it actually holds more currency,” said Myron Bartko, Assay on Wheels Director of Operations. “It’s cheaper. More cost effective. The design is sleek. And, it just works.”
