About us

Star Metal is a WA based family owned business. Our expertise is the design, manufacture and installation of custom metal fabrication. Our fabrication capabilities include welding, bending, rolling, punching and perforating.

We work across three broad categories:

  • Architectural in commercial construction
  • Industrial sheet metal fabrication with a significant focus on electrical switchboard cabinets, and metal enclosures

The Architectural division manufactures and installs balustrading, handrails, louvers, custom gates & fencing, bollards, kitchen benchwork and a variety of other miscellaneous customised metalwork.

During project execution, our project management group and technical specialists work closely with builders and architects to advise and resolve issues around constructability. They have the experience to offer alternative solutions to achieve the desired project outcome.

  • We have the skills to accommodate a wide diversity of design, fabrication or installation projects.
  • We specialise in delivering complex projects, from small scale to large commercial.
  • We are innovators in design and drafting, with the latest CAD software and the latest CNC machinery.
  • We invest in the latest technology in both software and workshop machinery hardware.
  • We design and fabricate in house – giving us control of our production schedule.
  • We are ISO9001 certified and have a systematic approach to quality management – giving you confidence in our approach and our commitment to getting the job done right, and on time.
SKILLS – We are our people

Star Metal’s greatest asset is the quality of our people, and we continue to invest in their safety and training. Our family-owned business has been building capacity and capabilities since we commenced operations in 2004, including moving to new premises in 2009 to cater for our growing business. We have a passion for quality and a reputation for consistently delivering high-quality outcomes for our customers. To do this requires highly skilled individuals and specialists to manage complex large-scale projects. Our team of project managers, draftspeople and fabricators understand how important it is to get the job done right the first time, on time.

Star Metal has the depth of project experience on diverse projects with which to help you:

  • Identify areas of cost reduction within your project.
  • Provide pre-fabrication advice to save time and materials…. because we know what works.
  • With advice on design, and constructability at design stage through modelling and virtual walkthroughs of your project.

Our site teams have extensive site experience, working across a diverse range of metalworks packages. We understand how to make things work and are skilled at finding out-of-the-box solutions – and often help bridge the gap between what our customer wants, and the practical and cost realities of a project. With a clear scope defined, our project manager then works closely with our inhouse drafting team to create the drawings for approval, ensuring compliance with all Australian and other relevant standards is met.

We have invested in ISO9001 certification to underpin our commitment to delivering high-quality products consistently to our customers. The certification strengthened our processes and ensures that projects leave our workshop fabricated to the highest quality.

Our capabilities and skills across architectural metalwork, industrial fabrication and perforated sheet metal means we have capacity to work across a broad spectrum of fabrication projects. We are a ONE-STOP-SHOP. Our strong internal processes, supported by our sound management systems ensure projects are well managed through design, drafting, fabricating and site installation.

With extensive and diverse fabrication qualifications and hands-on experience – in our field of expertise, there is nothing we can’t do. 


Star Metal provides a one stop solution from concept to installation.

  • Design / drafting– preparation of fully dimensioned and marked up drawings suitable for architect or client engineer review. We can deliver fully rendered 3D models or simple 2D CAD drawings as determined by our customer.
  • Engineering certification– from cyclone wind rating, to C3 balustrade rating, to structural integrity- we can ensure the final product meets all engineering compliance, and Australian Standard requirements.
  • Specialised welding capabilities – with a range of fabrication expertise we can provide welding qualifications and codings to suit a range of applications:
    • Mild steel
    • 316 & 304 Stainless steel, and Aluminium
    • Exotic metals such as copper and brass
  • Sheet metal processing equipment –Turret punch, press brakes, 3m metre roller, enable all fabrication under one roof. We can control all aspects of our manufacturing process.
  • Installationwe have our own inhouse installation team–highly skilled fabrication team with a broad range of experience on a diverse range of installation projects.



Delivering to a high standard requires great people, the right technology, and an innovative mindset.

At Star Metal we are always looking for ways to do things differently. It is the reason we have a longstanding and loyal customer base. Just because we have worked with companies for many years does not mean that our engagement with them or our offerings have stayed the same over that time. As our use of technology has changed, we have continually communicated with our customers about what else we can add to our service delivery.

Our team is in regular contact with a wide network of suppliers and service providers, not only nationally but around the world. This ensures we keep abreast of the best products and services, as well as latest machinery and technology, to ensure we continue to deliver the highest quality outcome to our customers.


We believe in building our industry and adding to the pool of skilled tradespeople in WA, we will continue to support apprentices and we employ new recruits annually.

Star Metal’s objective is to promote from within. For many years we have offered Traineeships for those who have demonstrated the capability and interest in moving to a different or more senior roles.  This has helped us attract and retain great people and as a result our turnover of staff is low. Several of our key people have made their start with us through apprenticeships.

We maintain ongoing relationships with relevant TAFE colleges to assist us recruiting apprenticeship positions. We also work with local high schools to offer pre-apprenticeship training and work experience.

If you would like to apply for an apprenticeship or would like more information please contact us.


Star Metal has always recognised the need to stay on top of current trends and technology affecting our business and will continually look to advances to ensure our customers are at the cutting edge of innovation in metalwork technology.


  • We use the latest in 3D design software, bringing customers high quality drafting and design capabilities, providing our customers with a virtual demonstration of their project prior to fabrication

We use advanced sheet perforating software, among other things, enabling conversion of images to perforated patterns. This we have applied to a wide range of commercial façade applications

Machinery and Equipment

We continually upgrade our workshop equipment and utlilise state-of-the-art sheet metal processing machinery. All our machinery are networked CNC machines, which means the 3D models created during the design/drafting stage flow through our production process ensuring final product exactly matches the original design.

As part of our commitment to continually upgrading our technology – in July 2020, Star Metal commissioned another press brake – a Japanese made Muratec, 135 tonne capacity press brake with, 3 metre folding length. This networked press brake enables simulated onscreen bending, ensuring elimination of remakes, and more efficient folding. Delivering for our customers a quicker fabrication time and as a result – reduced cost.

The cornerstone of Star Metal’s sheet metal processing technology is the Amada EMZ3610, 52station, CNC turret punch. This piece of equipment provides unparalleled capacity and capability! Some of the features include:

  • Automatic loading and unloading and capable of 24-hour unmanned operation
  • Ability to process and auto-load sheets 1.5m wide x 3.3m sheet length
  • Infinitely customisable perforating capability
  • Fully networked and integrated with our design office
  • Extreme precision and infinite variety of punching patterns available
  • High speed capacity
  • High capability to handle large perforation, or general punching projects


Sheet metal rolling– We have a 3-metre sheet roller used exclusively for aluminium and stainless steel to prevent ferrous contamination. This provides a unique in-house capability, further underpinning our ability to undertake all aspects of fabrication under one roof.


We are committed to the health and safety of our people and continue to invest in their ongoing professional development and safety training.

We are ISO9001 certified, our quality management system underpins our operational processes and provides the basis for ensuring that safety practices and processes are embedded throughout all our operational processes. 

Our operational targets are for zero injuries.  Since commencement of Star Metal in 2004 we have achieved an outstanding record over the long term.
