New Zealand Steel Limited is the country’s sole producer of flat rolled steel products for the building, construction, manufacturing and agricultural industries. We operate a fully integrated steel mill at Glenbrook, about 60 kilometres south of Auckland. The mill is surrounded by 500 hectares of farmland acting as a ‘greenbelt’ buffer zone.
Over the years around 114 hectares of the industrial site and the greenbelt has been extensively planted with trees and grass. We use locally sourced ironsand to produce around 650,000 tonnes of steel a year. It is a remarkable example of how an industry can successfully adapt to take advantage of a natural resource unlike any other in the world.
About 60% of our steel output is exported. Our company operates to the stringent ISO 9000 quality standards and is committed to being a world-class steelmaker.
Together with our employees, we are continually striving to set new benchmarks for environmental and health and safety performance.
