Your voice for the industry

Vision: To influence profitable growth for the complete Australian steel value chain.

Mission: To deliver increased use of Australian steel and improved industry competitiveness in construction and other strategic markets.

The Australian Steel Institute (ASI) acts for a safer, more productive and sustainable Australian steel manufacturing and design industry.

With member groups across the full chain from steel manufacturing, distribution and downstream processing to design, drafting and detailing, the ASI’s activity covers the full range of services from promoting excellence to providing training and support.

The ASI works with government, the media and other associations to provide an independent voice for industry representation across vital issues such as promoting local content advantages in the nation’s interest, both to the client and to government.

With a mission to assist growing the market for Australian processed or fabricated steel, the ASI is active in a whole range of sectors from buildings and infrastructure projects to sheds and racking systems.

In the design area, the technical support arm of the Institute organises events for technical training at both industry and undergraduate level, case study seminars and awards, and publishes journals (based on latest research).

The technical references provided through the electronic online resources and library are proudly the best in the Southern Hemisphere and with longstanding links to global research and other steel industry associations such as worldsteel, the ASI can offer a truly international solution.
