Building from the ground up: how Southern Steel WA supports the Australian construction industry

Southern Steel WA has an enviable track record of servicing the Australian construction industry. Quality is the hallmark of our work and the steel we supply, but it’s our unparalleled capability and exceptional customer service that set us apart.

We spoke with the manager of a large engineering that specialists in the manufacture, assembly and refurbishment of a wide range of mechanical and electrical equipment for the Australian mining industry, and we asked how Southern Steel WA supports them and helps them do what they do best.

Putting the pieces together

Based in Pinjarra, engineering firm’s purpose-built workshops cover a combined 55,000m2 with the capability to process 150 tonnes of structural steel per month.

With its experienced team of skilled boilermakers, the firm has the capacity to meet the demanding deadlines of a variety of construction projects while maintaining the highest quality.

“We’ve been working with Southern Steel WA for eight or nine years. They have an experienced, highly-qualified team that knows our business and what we need. When I’m on the phone with them, there’s no wasted time explaining things to multiple people or trying to make them understand. They speak our language,” says the manager.

Recently, Southern Steel WA supplied processed structural steel for two engineering projects, including 200 tonnes of steel for a Tier 1 mining company and another 200 tonnes for a new government senior high school.

“Southern Steel WA is best suited to meet our needs and requirements. Their processing capability is second to none, and they’ve always delivered the steel we need, when we need it.”

Our extensive stock holdings and experienced people enable us to manage the supply chain for large projects and end-users, whilst our customer focused, flexible culture has generated a diverse, loyal customer base from owner-operators to large multinationals.

“Holing, cutting, notching and pressing, rolling or bending – they can do it all. And their processes are much better than other steel merchants we’ve worked with in the past – this helps us maximise our capabilities and gives us an edge in the market.”
