Servicing Australian construction and infrastructure since 1947

Established in 1947, the Southern Steel Group remains wholly family owned and fiercely independent, methodically growing into one of Australia’s largest and most successful steel supply, processing and distribution companies.

Underwritten by a set of collaborative principles, the ‘Southern Group Way’ has been instrumental in forging the company’s expansion model.

From its humble beginnings in Wollongong, New South Wales, the Southern Steel Group is proud of its rich history and has grown its asset base to include 26 subsidiary steel supply, processing and distribution businesses under management.

The group’s network covers steel products, sheet & coil, steel processing and distribution. It continues to fortify its position through strategic acquisitions incorporating ethical governance and management oversight.

With national reach, the Southern Steel Group’s network is represented in all Australian states. The company’s long term client portfolio is extensive and features some of Australia’s most influential steel fabrication, engineering and construction companies. The group’s network continues to service small, medium and large enterprises with flexibility, humility and excellence in customer service and communication.

Acquisitions - the power of one

Over the past four decades the Southern Steel Group has identified and acquired established Australian steel supply and processing businesses.

Each business continues to operate autonomously with the support of the Southern Steel Group’s executive.

Benefiting from the group’s managerial and cultural structures, these strategic acquisitions have enabled the group to expand its offering, improve its personnel, enhance its distribution capability and increase its market share, inventory and asset value.

Steel distribution

Distribution - agile and guaranteed

The Southern Steel Group has created an enviable reputation for distribution over its long and successful history. Our established and fruitful partnerships with all Australian steel producers ensure the group carries a formidable inventory, including the widest range of steel sections to suit any specification.

With a highly agile distribution model, the Southern Steel Group and its subsidiaries guarantee next day delivery on standard products.

The group’s distribution capabilities are a key strategic priority, enabling clients to intelligently forecast construction milestones, keeping project targets on schedule and on budget. The group’s inventory and distribution model is a key driver of the success of all the Southern Steel Group’s businesses.
