Bisalloy Steel Group (ASX:BIS)
Bisalloy Steels is Australia's only manufacturer of high-tensile and abrasion-resistant quenched and tempered steel plate used for armour, structural and wear-resistant steel applications; products which are marketed under the brand name BISALLOY® and exported to countries throughout Asia, the Middle East, Europe, North America and South America (use of Bisalloy Steels’ products is so widespread that BISALLOY® has become the generic name for quenched and tempered performance steels in Australia and many countries across Asia).
From its base in NSW, Bisalloy Steels manufactures its products through a highly efficient, continuous flow process. Since beginning operation in 1980, Bisalloy Steels has earned an outstanding international reputation for the quality of its products and technical backup.
As a specialist performance steel manufacturer and supplier, Bisalloy Steels is highly responsive to customer demands and market changes anywhere in the world and is also strongly committed to, and clearly focused on, the crucial task of continuous product development and improvement.
Supplying manufacturers and end-users in a vast array of industries including mining, construction, general fabrication, pressure vessel and defence, Bisalloy Steels distributes its products via a network of distributors across Australia, directly to end users, through its businesses in Indonesia, Thailand and the People’s Republic of China, and through agents in at least a dozen countries worldwide.
Bisalloy Steel Group Limited (ASX:BIS)
Bisalloy Steel Group Limited comprises Bisalloy Steels Pty Ltd in Australia, the majority-owned distribution businesses in Indonesia (PT Bima Bisalloy) and Thailand (Bisalloy Thailand) and, from July 2011, the investment in Chinese CJV - Bisalloy Jigang (Shandong) Steel Plate Co. Ltd.
The Group is focused on leveraging the significant Intellectual Property associated with the formulation of the raw material input ("green feed") and the quenched and tempered steel plate production processes.
While the primary value of this Intellectual Property has to date been delivered through the production of BISALLOY®quenched and tempered steel plate from Bisalloy Steels’ Unanderra production facility, the ability to replicate and build upon this Intellectual Property is now proven through the Joint Venture in China.
