Steel manufacturer grows stronger in Logan
An iconic steel manufacturer has confirmed its commitment to the City of Logan by unveiling plans to expand to a $4.2m facility in Berrinba.
Work has started on the new Beenleigh Steel Fabrications (BCF) facility, which will double the company’s floorspace and production capacity, and create at least 59 local jobs over the next five years.
BSF has been operating in Crestmead since 1980, carving out a strong market niche in architectural steel fabrications for large-scale projects Australia-wide. Its steel is being used in iconic Queensland projects including Queen’s Wharf, Cross River Rail, the Gabba and North Queensland Stadium
BSF Director, Anthony Stoeckert, says construction will soon begin ramping up and is expected to take six months to complete.
“We’re very excited about our future and that of the Logan area,” Mr Stoeckert says.
“Our expansion will create job opportunities for up to eight apprentices and trainees per year in boilermaking, rigging, dogging, machine operation and computer skills.
“We are keen to find local Logan people to take up these opportunities and to be a part of growing our city.”
The expansion is supported by funding through the Queensland Government’s Jobs and Regional Growth Fund.
