BlueScope Distribution understands that our customers servicing the non-residential building segment need access to a wide range of steel materials quickly. Critical to their projects is access to trusted products, such as sheet and coil products like COLORBOND® steel and ZINCALUME® steel, and plate products, such as XLERPLATE® steel, as well as structural steels.
Our customers produce roofing, walling and framing products that go into many commercial building applications, such as warehouses and industrial buildings. Our teams provide our building customers with access to slit coils and sheet packs, and when it comes to COLORBOND® steel products our customers can enjoy the wide range of colours and the complete COLORBOND® steel range.
Our teams can supply sheet and coil, plate, aluminium, tube, bar, structural and reinforcing products, providing your business one easy point of contact for your steel and aluminium needs. BlueScope Distribution can assist in coordinating supply for commercial building projects, and we understand it is critical to supply on-time to meet project deadlines, with large stockholdings for urgent materials, excellent inventory-control and warehousing processes. Our trusted systems and knowledgeable people provide peace of mind when it comes to supplying steel for our building customers.
Critical to commercial projects is access to trusted products, such as sheet and coil products like COLORBOND® steel and ZINCALUME® steel, and plate products, such as XLERPLATE® steel. Products such as these are produced to relevant Australian Standards, in Australia, for Australian conditions.
As well as steel sheet, steel tube, bar, structural and reinforcing products are key to the building industry, and BlueScope Distribution can supply a wide range. Product quality, product tolerances, and reliability of supply are the foundations of BlueScope Distribution’s offer. By looking closely at our customer’s production and processing lines, we aim to identify cost and time savings, remove bottlenecks, and make incremental changes, which can translate into profit improvements.
Certified non-combustible AS1530.1 Aluminium Product
With BlueScope Distribution, your business has access to a range of certified non-combustible aluminium products available ex stock and customised to suit your project requirements. Independently tested in Australia by CSIRO in accordance with AS 1530.1-1994, BlueScope Distribution’s range of mill-finish aluminium sheet, coil and plate product, up to 6.30mm thickness, meets Australian standards for the combustibility test for materials.
