New Zealand Steel's fully integrated steel mill produces a range of flat steel products for domestic and export markets.  We supply all major markets including construction, manufacturing, infrastructure, packaging and agriculture.

The Glenbrook facility, south of Auckland, comprises an integrated steel mill manufacturing flat rolled steel products, with a galvanising line, a paint line, hollow section mill and billet caster.

Slabs are rolled into hot and cold rolled products, which are then sold or further processed into products like hollow sections, galvanised steel, ZINCALUME® steel and COLORSTEEL® steel.

The billet caster directs liquid steel to domestic reinforcing and wire products through Pacific Steel, which was acquired in 2014.

New Zealand Steel, the only fully integrated flat steel producer in New Zealand, uses locally-sourced iron sand and coal to produce about 600 000 tonnes of steel slabs a year.

In addition, New Zealand Steel includes:

  • The Waikato North Head iron sands mine, which supplies approximately 1.2 mtpa of iron sands concentrate to the Glenbrook Steelworks, sufficient to meet its annual production requirements.  The mine also supplies iron sands for export to Asian markets, primarily China and Japan, and is operated under a long-term exclusive license with the New Zealand government;
  • The Taharoa iron sands mine, which supplies iron sands for export to Asian markets, primarily China and Japan and is operated under a long-term exclusive license with non-government land owners; and
  • Lysaght Pacific Islands, which includes facilities in Fiji, New Caledonia and Vanuatu that manufacture and distribute the LYSAGHT® range of products.
