Western Port

Welcome to Western Port

Located on the traditional lands of the Boonwurrung/Bunurong people, BlueScope has been operating a painted, coated and uncoated steel processing facility at Hastings, on the shores of Western Port Bay, for over half a century.

BlueScope’s Western Port site has evolved from two earlier company trading names including John Lysaght (Australia) Pty Ltd and Broken Hill Proprietary Company Limited, Steel Division.

Celebrating 50 years

In fact, we celebrated our 50th birthday in our local community on 3 November 2022. It gave us an opportunity to remember and pay tribute to 50 years of great people working in the local steel industry, providing quality steel products to Australian customers and jobs for local people.

While we are the largest private employer on the Mornington Peninsula, the Western Port facility is part of Bluescope's global steel manufacturing community. Fifteen thousand people are employed across Australia, New Zealand and Pacific Islands, Thailand, Vietnam, China and in North America.

The steel products we make for the building and construction markets, manufacturing, transport agricultural and mining industries are 100 per cent recyclable. We are also working to make the way we manufacture steel sustainable by lowering emissions. Read more about BlueScope’s climate action and sustainability targets here.

Customer service centre opening

We opened our new service centre, with a steel processing capacity of more than 100,000 tonnes per annum.

The $34 million facility is an investment in the latest technology, secures local jobs and strengthens Victoria’s manufacturing industry.
