As one of Australia’s largest garage door manufacturers, Queensland-based Steel Line Garage Doors produces a range of residential garage doors, shed roller doors, industrial shutters, timber garage doors and tilt garage doors along with garage door operators for industrial applications.
By leveraging the manufacturing and supply chain expertise of BlueScope Distribution, along with utilising the superior qualities of Australian-made GALVABOND® steel, Steel-Line Garage Doors is now capable of more efficiently satisfying the growing demand for its products across Australia.
With its Australia-wide network of manufacturing and retail assets, the company relies on the quality and consistency of the GALVABOND® steel range as well as process efficiency and optimisation advice from BlueScope Distribution, streamlining the manufacturing process of its premium range of architectural products.
According to Steel-Line Garage Doors Purchasing Manager Brenda Grundy, working with BlueScope Distribution for the past five years has helped her company achieve a number of process milestones. “With their Steel Efficiency Review™ (SER), BlueScope Distribution has helped us in a number of ways including analysing our production processes to help further promote our efficiency, identifying new business opportunities and also helping us with research and development ideas.”
“The two way relationship that has been formed and that is maintained between Steel-Line Garage Doors and BlueScope Distribution cements a future for both parties,” said Brenda.
“BlueScope Distribution supports us on a national level – we have had a long term relationship with them as they have been our steel supplier since we started 35 years ago and this partnership has helped both companies.”
“BlueScope Distribution looked at our manufacturing business as a whole and also at our entire supply chain and identified areas where they could help improve our efficiencies including increasing the safety stocks of GALVABOND® steel, and helping us with the smarter storage of steel coil,” said Brenda.
Daniel Moore, an SER® representative said Steel-Line Garage Doors buys GALVABOND® steel for a large part of its manufacturing needs. “BlueScope GALVABOND® steel goes into the manufacture of just about every part of the Steel-Line range of garage doors including the door panels, frames and even the retracting gutters.”
Brenda Grundy said that the positive impact that BlueScope Distribution has had on her company has been “absolutely huge.” “BlueScope Distribution has helped us cut down on waste while also streamlining the delivery and handling of the GALVABOND® steel as well as helping the company with a range of marketing and promotion concepts.”
