All under one big roof

Job in shop – it’s the trade term for all under one roof. And at Rigby Jones, ours is a mighty big roof.

In fact, we have the largest plate processing capacity in NSW. We specialise in complex cutting and forming of mild steel, quench and tempered steel, corten steel, stainless steel and aluminium of all grades.

Matched with our years of in-house expertise, it guarantees the best service and results for our clients.

So if you need an extra-long truck side pressed in one piece, we have the steel forming machines to do it. Maybe it’s intricate metal components for a show-stopping architectural installation. Then we have the cutting machines to meet your requirements.

Or perhaps you simply want the assurance that your components will be made to specification and delivered on time. Whatever your requirements, at Rigby Jones all your supply and steel processing requirements are met under one roof.

Factory of Steel supplies

Humble beginnings

Rigby Jones was established in 1960, in the Sydney suburb of Ryde. Back then it was just two partners and a small sheet metal business.

By the early 90’s the business had grown significantly, relocating to Western Sydney and employing 140 people, working across three shifts.

Rigby Jones was well known in the steel industry as one of the largest engineering businesses in NSW, having the largest guillotining and bending capacities to service their customers.

As our business grew, we built our reputation on our expertise in plasma and oxy-fuel profile cutting, heavy tonnage pressings and plate rolling.

In 2000, the Southern Steel Group purchased the business for its steel processing capabilities and expertise – and ceased fabrication.

Today, as proud members of the Southern Steel Group, we specialise in complex steel cutting and forming. Our purpose-built steel processing factory boasts the largest plate processing capacity in NSW.
