New Beenleigh Steel facility is building Queensland’s future

Beenleigh Steel Fabrications recently opened its new facility in Berrinba, Queensland. The $12 million facility has doubled the company’s production capacity and created at least 59 new jobs, including new apprenticeships and traineeships.

With the support of the Queensland Government’s $175 million Jobs and Regional Growth Fund, Beenleigh Steel fast-tracked its much-needed expansion.

Beenleigh Steel had outgrown its Creastmead facility after securing contracts for the Cross River Rail, Queen’s Wharf Terminal and Kangaroo Point Green Bridge. The new modern, fit-for-purpose facility at Berrinba in Logan has doubled Beenleigh Steel’s floor space and production capacity.

According to Beenleigh Steel Fabrications director Anthony Stoeckert,“Everyone at Beenleigh Steel is thrilled to have moved into the new facility and to be fully operational.”

“We’re already experiencing notable productivity gains thanks to the new, state-of-the-art equipment, and the sustainability features and extra floor space will be a gamechanger for us into the future.”

“We’ve worked hard over the past 40 years to build a solid reputation in the industry by being innovative and client-focused, and we’re expecting our growth trajectory to more than double into the future. Logan has always been our home and we’re excited to be launching into this new phase of growth still firmly embedded in our local community.”

The opening ceremony was attended by distinguished guests, including Federal Treasurer and Member for Rankin Dr Jim Chalmers and Queensland Treasurer Cameron Dick.

According to Cameron, “The Palaszczuk Government is proud to have supported this respected Logan-based company’s expansion. Beenleigh Steel has helped create Queensland landmarks such as Suncorp Stadium, North Queensland Stadium, the Cairns Convention Centre, the Jubilee Place and Cross River Rail.”

“The Palaszczuk Government’s Jobs and Regional Growth Fund strategically supported Beenleigh Steel knowing the construction of a new facility would provide a boost to the local economy at a time when it was much needed.”

“Importantly, the 59 new jobs will have a positive flow-on effect for the Logan community, especially for Logan’s young people who may be looking to start their career through a traineeship or apprenticeship in a solid trade where there will be great prospects well intothe future.”

Established in 1980, Beenleigh Steel Fabrications supply, fabricate and erect medium to heavy structural steel, servicing both the public and private sectors. The company’s steel has been a foundation for Queensland landmarks for the past 40 years.

Just some of the large-scale projects in which Beenleigh Steel Fabrications has been involved include the Queensland State Velodrome in Brisbane, the $1 billion Jewel Development on the Gold Coast, the Brisbane Casino Towers and the $800 million 300 George Street development in Brisbane.

In 2018, Beenleigh Steel Fabrications achieved a Construction Category 3 rating under the National Structural Steel Work Compliance Scheme (NSSCS), making the company the first fabricator in Queensland to achieve this level of certification.
