Our client is a large engineering services company primarily working in the mining, rail, transport and defence sectors.
With over 400 employees, the business specialises in supplying heavy haulage components, including trays and buckets, steel fabrication and manufacturing, mechanical repairs and rebuilds, steel construction and installation, along with other allied services to the heavy industrial sectors.
“Our business moves fast and at any one time we have a large number of projects on the go. We need a steel supply business that is first and foremost reliable. Naturally, price is a factor; however, reliability is our priority, and with RPG Australia we know we have the most reliable pipeline of quality steel made to order for our needs. Having this relationship is critical to our efficiencies and capacity to successfully service our clients.”
Our client has been working closely with us for over ten years. Their biggest challenge was sourcing a steel supplier that could manufacture steel components of the highest quality and consistency, backed by real speed. Their business requires minimal lag time and they need to be across every milestone in the production cycle.
Understanding our client’s business model, production scheduling and client base was critical for RPG Australia to forecast inventory and production timelines. Through transparent communication and trust, the relationship has forged very strong bonds and levels of mutual understanding that have become essential to meet the demands and ensure the delivered product is of the highest possible quality every time.
Whether the orders are for pressed quenched steel or bespoke components made from engineered drawings for a complex project build, they know they can rely on RPG Australia’s capabilities and supply pipeline.
“RPG Australia is as honest as the day is long. They speak a language that does not allow for ambiguity. I know from the moment I place an order or pick up the phone that they will deliver on their promise. Having this relationship is real peace of mind and ensures our production and operations stays ahead of the curve.”

The client identified the need for a reliable and consistent partner for its steel supply and manufacturing. Working in the heavy industry sector it is imperative to maintain a consistent level of quality.
Their clients know they will always get a consistent product. And for them, their reliance on RPG Australia to consistently supply the highest quality steel components with 100% reliability on delivery streamlines their production schedule and keeps their clients fully engaged.
