Pacific Steel is New Zealand's only manufacturer of Wire Rod, Reinforcing Bar and Coil products with a production rate of around 250,000 tonnes per year of manufactured steel. Based in Otahuhu Auckland, Pacific Steel has been manufacturing high quality reinforcing steel rod and bar products for over 50 years.
Pacific Steel's SEISMIC® branded bar and coil products are made to meet New Zealand's unique seismic conditions and can be found in commercial, industrial, infrastructure and residential buildings nationwide. The unique SEISMIC® branding has been rolled into every Earthquake Grade 300E and 500E bar and coil to identify our product as the only 100% locally made product produced to local standards.
Our Australasian Certification Authority for Reinforcing and Structural Steels or 'ACRS' third party certification is a reflection of the importance we place on testing to provide or customers with a high quality, consistent product to meet their expectations and desired specification. ACRS accreditation reduces the risk by providing assurance that our steel is regularly and thoroughly and tested to meet the standard.
Alongside SEISMIC®, Pacific Steel also produces a range of manufactured zinc-aluminium galvanised wire. Our WIREMARK® branded fencing wire is the only 100% New Zealand made wire and has been developed for our local conditions. The WIREMARK® brand has been tested and trusted by New Zealand’s fencing industry for over 50 years.

Early in 1962, steel began to flow from the first steelworks to be built in this country; only two years before sheep had been grazing on the site on which the plant was built.
Ever since the earliest European settlers arrived, there had been thoughts of making iron and steel. Many had experimented, but here was the first successful attempt to mass produce the steel so essential to the development of a modern community.
With no precedent, very limited local experience in heavy engineering and no available pool of skilled steelworks labour, this was a bold step forward. The success of this enterprise is now apparent - a working complex of men, machines and knowledge combining to increase the industrial stature of the country.Read more
