Best Bar has grown significantly over the last 25 years to become a respected and capable reinforcement provider, supplying some of Australia’s largest building and construction companies. With an extensive branch network, we have the capacity to deliver to local needs, while accessing multiple international supply points to provide reliable and cost-effective solutions. We take a long term and responsible approach to business with the utmost attention to safety, the environment and the communities they operate in.
AUSTRALIAN REINFORCING COMAPNY
At Best Bar, it is vital that we not only grow our market share and deliver exceptional solutions to our customers but that we separate ourselves as the Australian reinforcing company with the best possible green credentials. The high quality of our steel is well known and this stems from our belief that by putting people, partnerships and performance first we can create a sustainable and stronger business model that has a distinct social value.
NatSteel produces the bulk of the steel that we supply and this relationship is one that we are especially proud of. NatSteel produces all of their premium reinforcement steel using 100% recycled scrap and uses a 100% energy saving process, which far exceeds the minimum requirements for sustainability as set out by the Green Building Council of Australia in their Green Star credit program.
As such, our customers stand to benefit from the exceptional products that we supply and can reduce their carbon footprint and boost their environmental credentials in choosing us over our competitors. Furthermore, beyond sustainability, our accreditations also speak to the quality of our organisation as well as the processes and procedures that we adhere to. We are accredited by the following organisations:
- The Australian Steel Association (ASA)
- Australian Certification Authority for Reinforcing Steels Ltd (ACRS)
- The Steel Reinforcement Institute of Australia (SRIA)
“I don’t want our employees to miss significant family milestones like watching their kids in a school running race or event; they’re the important things in life.”
CEO Grant Johnston
We endeavour to help and support our customers to deliver their projects on time by using industry-leading processes, experienced project teams and Australian Accredited reinforcement products.
We engage the hearts and minds of our employees and partners by building mutually beneficial relationships. Family has always been a central element of our business culture, encouraging a work-life balance.
The term innovation is often overused with little intention; We don’t talk about it, we show it; through technology like Reonet, Reosend and advanced machinery processes to continually create real value.
SAFETY & SUSTAINABILITY
We do not compromise on safety and uphold our commitment to safety and risk management. We operate efficiently to preserve natural resources and act responsibly and support our communities.
