Stramit turns 30

28 January 2020

The Stramit as we know it turns 30 in September this year, marking an exciting milestone for the national steel roll-former.

While Stramit’s roots which can be dated back to the 1890s, the company as we know it was founded in 1989 after KH Stramit and Amatek Building Products joined forces.

Since then, Stramit has also grown to become one of Australia’s largest steel roll formers after expanding its Stramit operations, as well as moving into the sheds and roller doors sectors via its Fair Dinkum Sheds and Taurean Roller Doors businesses.

National Sales Manager Mark Tod said that the last 30 years have been an exciting time for Stramit.

“Just looking at our last four or five years has been huge – for example, we’ve expanded for greater capability including a new Taurean 7,000m2 facility at Knoxfield and a new R & D facility in New South Wales.

“We’ve also launched various new products, as well as a new service promise to our customers in 2016 – all part of our focus on innovation and the customer’s experience.

“The best part is that our story’s not finished yet . . . we have so many exciting things planned to ensure that our story continues to go from strength to strength for years to come,” he said.
