Our Company

BlueScope is the world’s leading steel maker in coated steel technologies. Our company is headquarted in Melbourne, Australia, BlueScope has offices and operations in 17 countries and has the strength of 17 000 employees worldwide. BlueScope is now leading the way in the pre-painted steel and coated steel market in Africa for a quality roof that can not be matched by other steel manufacturers.

The modern BlueScope Limited has evolved from the coming together of three pioneer companies in the steel and steel roofing industry (The Broken Hill Proprietary Company Limited (BHP Steel), John Lysaght (Australia) Pty Ltd and Australian Iron & Steel Limited) together with the more recent acquisitions of New Zealand Steel and Butler Manufacturing.

We specialize in the production of flat steel products, including slab, hot rolled coil, cold rolled coil and value-added metallic coated and painted steels. BlueScope Limited’s premium brands ZINCALUME® steel and Clean COLORBOND™ steel ranges are used in the manufacture of roofing and walling sheets as well as roofing accessories including flashings and rain water goods. BlueScope Buildings has also paved the way for new Pre-Engineered Buildings (P.E.B.) in Africa. BlueScope Buildings, the largest provider of Pre-Engineered Building globally, is dedicated to supplying the commercial and industrial industry with the unique and innovative ™ building system. Using a globally recognised system we design, manufacture and deliver your custom pre-engineered building to meet your design requirements.

ZINCALUME® steel is a revolutionary zinc/aluminium alloy coating with superior corrosion resistance that greatly extends product life and leads to the development of even more reliable steel products for the construction and manufacturing industries. It is scientifically proven to last up to four times longer than traditional galvanized steel in similar environments. Roof sheets using the ZINCALUME® steel technology are also more thermally efficient then roof sheets made from traditional galvanized steel allowing for a cooler building.

Clean COLORBOND™ steel combines the superior strength of steel, the corrosion resistance of the ZINCALUME® steel substrate and the high performance beauty of an oven cured paint system which is remarkably resistant to chipping, cracking, peeling and fading. Roofing and walling profiles made from Clean COLORBOND™ steel has an aesthetically pleasing and long lasting finish unmatched in the South African roofing market.

Ownership of the trademarks ZINCALUME® and Clean COLORBOND™ reside within BlueScope Steel Limited. Only BlueScope Steel manufactures these products. ZINCALUME® and Clean COLORBOND™ trademarks are instantly recognizable world wide and they are your guarantee of quality. Roof sheeting and walling made from BlueScope Steel products will have a unique brand on the underside of the sheets to differentiate from roof sheets made from generic or other materials.

With a sales and marketing office located in Cape Town we strive to make available some of the latest steel products and technologies throughout Southern Africa

“BlueScope’s approach to competition is to continually develop intellectual property and proprietary technology that allows it to differentiate its value proposition away from the commodity of the market.

BlueScope possesses one of Australia’s largest in-home manufacturing R&D centres at our Port Kembla steelworks with no fewer that 35 PhD scientists working on future product opportunities.”
