Benefits of Australian products

3 reasons why Aussie made steel structures are the best!

Australian Made products are almost always tougher, better quality and more fit for purpose than imported alternatives. This extends to everything from the individual components of your shed to the finished structure. Sure, we might be a little biased because Steelcorp sheds are 100% Australian Made.

But there are real, tangible benefits you get from buying Australian Made products that are good for you, your project, and your local economy.

Here’s why we think buying Australian Made is a wise choice.

1. They are built tough for our harsh environment

Products designed and made in Australia are naturally more suited to tough conditions, from COLORBOND® sheeting right through to the smallest components. This is because manufacturers’ R&D teams are forced to build, test and refine their products amongst challenging environmental conditions such as wild weather and baking sun.

We live in one of the harshest, driest countries in the world so our buildings need to be able to take whatever is thrown at them and still remain strong and steadfast.

2. 99% of the time they’re better quality

There is absolutely a place in the industry for cheaper, high volume imported products and components – but it’s not in your shed. Most of the time, imported steel has impurities in it caused by improper manufacturing techniques. (This ‘dirty steel’ is a nightmare for galvanizers who won’t hesitate to tack on a surcharge for dirtying their bath.)

Whether you’re designing a complex commercial structure or a simple steel shed, it’s likely to be a sizable investment so you want it to last for as long as possible and be made from the best quality products available.

Choosing a designer, builder and tradespeople that use Australian Made products and materials means you’re much more likely to have a shed that lasts for decades. A well-made structure will need very little maintenance and look as good in 10, 20, even 50 years as it does today.

3. Australian products help support our local economy

Keeping jobs in Australia is another key benefit of buying an Australian made steel shed.

Partnering with a supplier that supports Australian Made products throughout their entire supply chain means that your steel project will cause a ripple effect that benefits the local economy.

Buying Australian Made helps to generate positive economic activity, while you get to enjoy a shed made to the highest possible standards.
