Established in 1965, Plate & Steel Industries specialised in heavy steel fabrication. From these roots grew a comprehensive knowledge of the engineering industry, and the company gradually moved its focus to plate supply and processing.
Plate & Steel Industries was established by George Braden in Murdoch Street, Clayton and gradually moves away from its roots in heavy plate fabrication to plate supply and processing.

Plate & Steel Industries relocated to Century Drive, Braeside.
Another two Oxy Fuel Multi Head Profile Cutting Machines were installed together with the latest CNC Controllers.
Three large Surface Grinding machines installed to cater for the tool making and automotive industries.
Tim Braden commenced employment with Plate & Steel Industries, becoming the third generation to take on a role within the business.
Plate & Steel Industries commissioned its first Kinetic CNC Plasma Profile Cutting Machine.
Recognising a need within the industry, Plate & Steel Industries diversified to include CNC Press Brake capability.
Plate & Steel Industries commissioned another Kinetic K4000 Combination Plasma Cutting, Milling & Drilling Machine that enabled us to offer drilling, tapping, countersinking, counterboring and contour bevelling.
Large capacity Plate Rolls were installed to further expand the business’s Plate Forming capacity.
Plate & Steel Industries was acquired by Sell and Parker Group. We became able to access the expertise and knowledge within our group of companies, including Sell & Parker, Precision Oxycut, Allthread Industries, and First Forge Australia, to offer complete solutions for projects 100% manufactured in house in Australia.
