About Our Industry
Australia has one of the most dynamic and innovative steel sectors in the world. Importantly, Australia has been recognised as a world leader in the use of high tensile materials and in coating technology.
Steel is also a highly sought after material for infrastructure developments and its use increases proportionally to the development of the standard of living of a country. It’s also a very prominent material as most goods we use either have some steel component or are made using tooling or machinery made from it.
Australia's steel industry employs around 90,000+ people and has an annual turnover of $30 billion. The integrated Australian steel channel typically holds in excess of two million tonnes of inventory available through distributors located on over 300 sites across the country.
The steel industry has embraced technology with Building Information Modelling (BIM) a way of life for most major projects feeding into the latest computer numerical controlled fabrication equipment.
Significantly steel is one of the world’s most recyclable materials and in Australia we recycle at world class levels. It is the building material of the future.
