OUR HISTORY

We’ve come a long way.

30 Years logo vertical 300px
This year, Stramit celebrates its 30th birthday. But our story started long before 1989.

Our roots originally came from various family-owned roofing, rainwater and roll forming businesses - some of which dated back to the 1890s. This explains why an entrepreneurial spirit, high quality standards and good old-fashioned customer service runs deep in our DNA today.

Fast forward to 1989. The Stramit we know today was born after KH Stramit and Amatek Building Products joined forces.

Since then, we've developed new products, which have been recipients of Australian Design Awards.

We've also been joined by others who brought a wealth of experience, such as a leader in the roller door business (Taurean Door Systems) and the Australian sheds market (Fair Dinkum Sheds and Shed Boss).

In 2019, this journey has made us what we are today. That is, one of Australia's largest steel roll formers which offers a national network and strong commitment to safety and quality, while knowing our customers by their first names.

And we’ll continue to evolve. We know the best is yet to come.
