Solutions we provide
Project Management solutions
Our BlueScope Distribution teams are experienced in handling and processing steel coil products. With our processing capability, our teams can take large steel coils from the BlueScope mill and slit them to sizes our customers require, to suit their manufacturing needs.
Slitting is when a steel coil is fed through the slitter machine, cutting the coil into narrower strips using multiple sharp blades. These thin strips are then rewound or recoiled on the other end of the machine into smaller coils for efficient storage, transportation and manufacturing purposes. Slit recoils are used in many manufacturing applications, such as building products, HVAC, automotive components and many more.
Our teams are able to work with you our business from project start to finish, to coordinate the deliver of material where and when it is needed, just-in-time. This means your project runs smoothly, removing bottlenecks in production lines. Our teams are experienced in coordinating many different product deliveries to meet project milestones, meaning you free up warehouse space and keep inventory levels manageable.
