  • Beenleigh Steel Fabrications’ new facility in Berrinba was officially opened today
  • The $12 million facility has doubled the company’s production capacity
  • At least 59 new jobs will be created including new apprenticeships and traineeships

Beenleigh Steel Fabrications has completed construction of its new $12 million facility.

Thanks to the support of the Palaszczuk Government’s $175 million Jobs and Regional Growth Fund, the company fast-tracked its much-needed expansion.

The company’s steel has been a foundation for Queensland landmarks for the past 40 years.

It has contributed to buildings such as Suncorp Stadium and the Gabba.

Beenleigh Steel had outgrown its Creastmead facility after securing contracts for the Cross River Rail, Queen’s Wharf Terminal and Kangaroo Point Green Bridge.

The new modern, fit-for-purpose facility at Berrinba in Logan has doubled Beenleigh Steel’s floor space and production capacity.

Quotes attributable to the Treasurer and Minister for Trade and Investment Cameron Dick:

“The Palaszczuk Government is proud to have supported this respected Logan-based company’s expansion.

“Beenleigh Steel has helped create Queensland landmarks such as Suncorp Stadium, North Queensland Stadium, the Cairns Convention Centre, the Jubilee Centre and Cross River Rail.

“The Palaszczuk Government’s Jobs and Regional Growth Fund strategically supported Beenleigh Steel knowing the construction of a new facility would provide a boost to the local economy at a time when it was much needed.

“Importantly, the 59 new jobs will have a positive flow-on effect for the Logan community.

“It’s especially for Logan’s young people who may be looking to start their career through a traineeship or apprenticeship in a solid trade where there will be great prospects well into the future.”

“We’ve worked hard over the past 40 years to build a solid reputation in the industry by being innovative and client-focused, and we’re expecting our growth trajectory to more than double into the future.
