For our supply chain, we use and recommend
Bluescope Australian TruSpec steel

TRU-SPEC® steel is made in Australia from Australian raw materials, which means not only are you getting an excellent first rate product but your supply chain is protected from pandemics, transport embargos, shipping delays and currency movements – where is the down side?

At Glyde Metal Industries we have already started to supply onshore to Australian companies as a result of Covid-19 and the results were pleasantly surprising for our new customer who was routinely importing from Scandinavia – Australian made was just as good and more cost effective with much shorter lead times! We were even able to assist with component testing to Australian Standards.

Reduce risk and source your metal fabricated parts from within Australia, you have nothing to lose and you might be surprised how much time and money you can save – use our quote request page to obtain local supply prices!
