OneSteel was created by combining eight historically diverse yet related businesses to form a vertically integrated mining, steel manufacturing, and steel and metal products distribution company. By achieving this, significant value is continually created for shareholders, customers and employees.
In June 2007, OneSteel and Smorgon Steel, two great names in Australian steelmaking, became a single entity. With more than 10,000 employees in over 200 locations across Australia and 13 offshore facilities, our transformation into a much larger company brings with it infinite possibilities. The merged business has a unique range of products, services and capabilities.
From minerals extraction through to metal recycling, the new, totally integrated OneSteel will deliver cost and performance benefits to our customers and stakeholders. With annual revenue in excess of six billion Australian dollars, OneSteel is Australia’s premier manufacturer of steel long products and a leading metals distribution company.
We intend to take our new enhanced portfolio of businesses and continue to evolve into so much more than a supplier in the chain. As our operations expand across Australian and into overseas markets, focus remains squarely on our customers, as we continue to deliver the solutions you need wherever you need them. OneSteel markets more than 40,000 products to over 30,000 customers.
OneSteel manufactures and distributes structural, rail, rod, merchant bar, cold finished bar, chrome plated bar, reinforcing, wire, tube, pipes, fittings, valves and actuation, rail wheels and axles, lite steel beam, grinding media and recycled metals. The majority of OneSteel’s products are used in the construction, manufacturing, housing, mining and agricultural industries.
The OneSteel name was created to encapsulate the bringing together of its various businesses.
The Waratah Difference
When it comes to the best steel fencing products, Waratah is in a paddock of its own.
We're part of OneSteel, a proud Australian company that’s been serving the needs of Australian farming for over 120 years.
We’ve been around long enough to know the harsh demands of the Australian climate requires endurance in a fencing product. So we do everything possible to ensure our products will stand the test of time.
Our wire and post products are made with premium, high-grade, Australian steel – by Australians.
Through our parent company, OneSteel, we control every step of the manufacturing process from OneSteel mines, right through to the OneSteel Waratah finished product that you see in your local store. This high level of process control delivers the exceptional product quality, consistency and ease-of-use that Waratah products are renowned for.
There are other fence products produced in Australia using Australian steel. The material used to produce these products, however, often comes from a variety of metal grades. Therefore the consistency, quality and strength can vary greatly from one item to the next.
With the Waratah Longlife® coating technology, and GalStar® Post range, we are continuing to lead the way by using innovation and technology to meet the fencing needs of Australian farmers.
That’s why all Waratah fencing products are guaranteed to exceed Australian standards, AS2423 and to be free of faulty manufacture and workmanship.
And that’s why you can rely on and trust Waratah fencing products to never let you down.
