Transport and Mining


RPG Australia has been successfully manufacturing steel components for the mining and transport industries for almost 40 years.

Our superior capability to supply long sheeted steel plate material for truck bodies and quality steel products that can withstand the rigours of surface and underground mining has enabled us to grow our portfolio of skill sets, capabilities and product range to meet the demands of this industry.

It is our agility, onsite machinery and highly efficient processes that allow us to communicate confidently with our transport and mining clients and meet their needs with precision, quality and flexibility.

Two metal experts working together

Heavy brake pressing

RPG Australia employs six presses with 2700 tonne capacity that press both mild and quenched & tempered steel plates up to 12.2 metres long, with knife blading and radius tooling to cover almost any requirement. We drill and countersink quenched & tempered steel to spec and create custom tooling when required.

VAUTID wear plate

VAUTID wear plate

We are very proud of our alliance with VAUTID, the world’s leading system specialist in wear protection. RPG Australia and VAUTID have joined forces to bring a premium quality European manufactured weld overlay plate to the Australian market.

Made in Germany and stocked by RPG Australia, the VAUTID 100 weld overlay plate is an efficient solution that extends the service lifetime on high wear surfaces.

Quality steel premium craftsmanship

RPG Australia has built a reputation for premium craftsmanship spanning 40 years in the industry. Our team is committed to quality at every touchpoint of every project, from procurement, ensuring all the steel we source is from blue-chip steel mills, through to the machine operators who treat each project as if it was their own.

We source our steel primarily from Australian steel mills. However, to ensure our supply promise, we engage a number of international mills and accept only steel that complies with Australian standards: BlueScope, Bisalloy, NLMK, VAUTID and SSAB.

We have invested in the very best equipment, CAD software and project management systems to safeguard clients’ timelines and keep their projects moving forward. All our work is ISO9001 certified and guaranteed.

No matter the size or complexity of your project, RPG Australia has everything under one roof and the experience and know-how to deliver your requirements to the highest level of quality and accuracy, when you need it.
