Bisalloy Steels is this year celebrating its 40th birthday, having proven the long-term competitiveness of high performance quenched and tempered plate steel products.
The company began operations in Wollongong in 1980, and quickly forged a reputation throughout Australia and other parts of the world for its high wear and high strength Bisalloy branded products.
Listed on the ASX in 2003, Bisalloy Steels counts mining, quarrying and exploration companies, industrial and commercial equipment manufacturers, defence organisations and others among its clients.
Employing more than 80 people locally and a further 160 internationally, Bisalloy h now services not only Australia, but a growing number of international markets.
To facilitate continued global growth, the company has majority-owned distribution channels in Indonesia and Thailand, as well as distribution networks in the United Arab Emirates, South Africa and China.
Bisalloy Steels’ penetration into Asian markets was strengthened in 2011 when the company established a 50/50 joint venture with Shandong Steel, making Bisalloy Shangang the sixth largest steel company in China, and the second largest premium quench and tempered brand in China for wear and structural steel markets.
Bisalloy also complements its range with product supply partnerships set up in Europe, Scandinavia and most recently North America, making Bisalloy Steels a truly global player.
The Australian production site based in Wollongong has the capacity to produce more than 60,000 tonnes per annum. The facility also has International certification for Safety and Environmental Management, as does its facility in China.
Bisalloy Steels’ managing director Greg Albert credited the company’s innovation, staff, and loyal customer base for its ongoing success.
“Achieving 40 years in business is a wonderful milestone and as a company we’re immensely proud to have an Australian manufacturing base that produces world-class products,” Albert said.
“Over the years we’ve worked hard to adapt to market needs and have developed a range of products that are extremely well regarded and trusted by our customers across a range of industries. Our high strength steels have enabled our customers to design products that would not have otherwise been possible.
“On behalf of Bisalloy Steels, we would like to thank our customers for their continued support and also give special mention to our dedicated employees both in Australia and throughout the world, and thank them for their work ethic, strong values and focus on safety. We look forward to the next 40 years.”
