Welcome to GAM Steel

Gunnersen Allen Metals, or GAM Steel as we are better known, is a recognised leader in steel distribution and processing services. Our site is located in Altona North and incorporates 60,000m2 of facility space.

In 1932 Gunnersen Allen Metals began trading steel. Originally established in Port Melbourne the facility has moved westward twice as its growth made it necessary to seek larger premises.

The facility relocated to Brooklyn in 1970 and later moved to its current purpose-built site in Altona North in 2021. Throughout its history, the business has developed into one of the country’s leading long products processing and distribution businesses.
