It’s Australian Steel Creating Australian Jobs

Australian-made steel helps our economy when times are tough through job creation, employing over 100,000 Australians.

Steel is the backbone of Australia’s construction, infrastructure and manufacturing industries. It has shaped our nation in the form of bridges, motorways and stadiums. We’re surrounded by it – it’s where we live, work, and play.

When times were tough, steel helped our economy by creating jobs. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the steel industry employs more than 110,000 Australians. In the current economic climate, it’s more important than ever to support local businesses by purchasing Australian-made steel.
