Structural Steel

We are pleased to be in association with the Victorian 2018 winner of the Australian Steel Institute's "Steel Excellence Award", who we will be using to supply our structural steel nationally.

They have a presence in Melbourne and South Australia, so you can take your construction project from the planning stage to the installation on-site. Our Network Members can also install and maintain your site and equipment, so be sure to check out our Services section.

We are able to deliver nationally, and install to your specifications.  If you want your construction project to be accurate, on time and cost-effective, you have the complete package using our Network Members.

Constructing your new development, or providing replacement parts, we have the capabilities to perform what you need.


The next section is an example of our team members working alongside others to manufacture and install as part of a large project.  This was pre-TABS Network days.

One Maintenance Project Snippet

This project was a nickel smelter rebuild.  Many teams and companies worked on this site, and it came together very nicely.  Here are some pictures of one part of the project as it came together from my perspective.

Happy management, happy teams!

We will be able to offer a broader range of products than we presently do as our business grows. It is our intention to be able to provide structural steel to every state and territory in Australia.

Whatever the phase of the project, our Network Members can help you achieve your goals with the best outcome. Some of our Network Members have their own teams of draftspeople and engineers.

As mentioned already, we have the teams to install the items that our Network Members produce nationally.

The advantage for you is knowing your job is going to be manufactured correctly. This is due to our diligence in ensuring the quality system flows from job creation to handover.

This image is a demonstration of The Australian Business Services Network in action, and covers many areas of what we offer. There is the supply of cranes and heavy equipment, and the fabrication of walkways and handrails for the mining and construction industries. This was a shutdown project, where we supplied our team of tradespeople, including welders, fitters, mechanics, crane drivers, riggers and more.

Large-Scale Bushes, Bearings and Shafts

Our Network Member manufactures these large-scale items overseas.  We have the capacity to provide a speedy delivery service to minimise downtime.

Here you see a range of the products.

There are the bushes (2000mm diameter is at present the biggest single piece), as well as the bi-metal products.  The bi-metal products save money because the wearable part is of brass while the casing is of steel.  This gives strength to the overall bush, whilst economically providing brass for only the necessary wearing part of the bush.

Non-ferrous products (brasses and bronzes) can be manufactured to your specific request.  We can provide one-off orders, as well as production line items. We can cater for your OEM needs.

Having our own smelter means that you can have your alloy made to your liking and specifications. Some of the products are noted in the pictures. Shafts (up to 2000mm diameter), large size ball valves, and bushes can be made to your specification.

The annual turnover of copper alone at this plant is almost 2000 tonnes.

Another product shown is the graphite-embedded bushes and wear plates. They come in a variety of substrates, including the commonly used brass bushing. These products are made with a minimum diameter of 450mm.

 Stainless Steel Products

Stainless steel items are necessary in just about every environment.  From kitchens and hygienic areas to the dining facilities for staff, stainless steel items are necessary in every major business.

Our Network Members manufacture stainless steel commercial kitchens (benchtops, bain maries, hot food cupboards, etc).  Also, they provide decor stainless steel, such as coloured signage and splashbacks.

Your stainless steel display can be created by our Network Member experts, or you can deliver your drawings. They supplied the 2000 Olympic Games, and currently supply to some large food chains, as well as providing custom work.

This is a small sample of the products that are supplied. Most of the products are manufactured here in Australia, and are shippable anywhere in the country. We also provide imported stainless steel items.
