Since 1915 the steel industry has been an essential part of Australia and its economy.  BlueScope's heritage traces back to the very beginning.
 

Our history has always been in steelmaking - but the future lies in selling Australian innovation, technology and expertise to the booming Asian and global growth markets.
 

BlueScope's business has been built on the strength of our global partnerships, global networks and global brands.
 

Our track record of successful global partnerships enables us to prosper in widely diverse markets.  In India, we have established a joint venture with the highly respected Tata conglomerate, a joint venture in Saudi Arabia is opening new opportunities in that expanding market, in North America, our 50:50 North Star BlueScope Steel joint venture with Cargill continues to perform strongly, and our joint venture with Nippon Steel - NS BlueScope Coated Products - will open exciting new markets and opportunities in Asia.
 

Equally important are our successful partnerships with our customers.  Many of our customers are Fortune 500 companies, and we can help them realise significant savings in the total cost of their buildings by reducing construction schedules. 
 

Our global networks are another great BlueScope strength, with more than 100 facilities in 17 countries, employing over 16,000 people serving thousands of customers.  
 

Our strong partnerships and networks are built on BlueScope's great product brands, such as COLORBOND®, Clean COLORBOND® and ZINCALUME® steels, LYSAGHT® steel building products, and Butler® and Varco Pruden custom engineered buildings.
