Home grown Australian steel - A material for today, tomorrow and many more to come

Why Australian steel?

Steelmaking is a renowned global business, with international markets making up 60% of the worlds steel production. Considering the current steel crisis especially in China and the UK suffering job losses, sell-offs, tariffs and production issues, now is a better time than ever to support and back Australian Steel.

When choosing your supplier you need to consider all elements and choose your supplier wisely. Some steel products may have had their final coating completed in Australia but the actual material is internationally manufactured.

Mass international production of steel generates lower costs of producing, therefore in return yielding a cheaper end-product for the consumer. However, a low value product creates potential risks in your end product use. Imported manufactured steel is not designed specifically to withstand Australian climates, and as a result can cause immense damage to property and people.

Although only making up a small percentage of the world market, Australia leads the way in the production and cold formed steel applications.

Australian market leader, BlueScope Steel have tried, tested and proven their products time and time again under the harsh Australian conditions, providing a long-life for your investment.
