Our Products

Liberty Primary Steel’s Whyalla steelworks is a major source of both special bar quality and commercial-grade billet feed using blast furnance steelmaking processes


The Liberty Primary Steel Whyalla Steelworks has a production capacity of ~1.2Mtpa of steel using a Blast Furnace Steelmaking process. Approximately 65 per cent of the steel produced is transferred by rail in billet form to InfraBuild Steel’s Rod Bar and Wire business for further value-added processing, and the remaining steel is converted to finished products in the form of structural steel and rails through the Whyalla Structural Mill.

Liberty Primary Steel Whyalla Steelworks has significant experience and expertise in the production of steel rail and steel sleeper systems in service to the Australian railway industry. A series of major investments in our facilities has resulted in the consistent manufacture of high-quality steel products. Liberty Primary Steel is proud to claim our steel rail and steel sleeper systems as Australian made.
