The Bennetts Steel team are a bunch of fun-loving, hard-working larrikins.
When we’re not busy on the tools at Bennetts Steel you’ll find us swapping stories around a campfire or throwing the catch of the day over the BBQ.
A swag of business awards is proof in the pudding that this group are masters of their trades and committed to providing the best outcomes for customers.
The team is headed up by sisters Shiree Bennett and Tanya Simmons, who come from completely different backgrounds but share a passion for business and all things steel.
Shiree brings a sharp business mind from the corporate world of pharmaceuticals and real estate, while Tanya brings strong customer service skills from a background in small business as a hairdresser and restauranteur. Shiree currently looks after Finance and Sales while Tanya oversees HR, Marketing, and IT.
Just as Bennetts Steel is known for its vast array of capabilities so are our team. Ranging from our fully qualified tradesmen through to our transport drivers, administration team & retail staff we have a massive knowledge base.
Ray, Murray and David are the masters in the fabrication shed and machining workshop. Ray Knox and Murray Passmore have a wealth of knowledge, too many years experience to count, and are proud to be passing on their trade secrets to apprentice David Genge. David has been with Bennetts for over six years and recently stepped into a mature aged apprenticeship allowing him to broaden his horizons.
In the retail shed you’ll find the friendly faces of Mic Asbury & Glenn Thomas. Mic is a fabricator himself & has come from a background in the steel industry working over many years for some of the big boys like Onesteel as well as most recently owning his own steel fabrication business. Glen is a butcher by trade, local to the bone & has that wicked little sense of humor that most butchers have.
Steve Newman is another long time local & is the man most often found behind the steering wheel of the Bennetts delivery truck. When he is not in the truck delivering to your door he works along side the retail boys & is an absolute whiz on the folder.
Lockie who is generally found out the back on the CNC machine has been with Bennetts for a few years now & is certainly honing in on his cad design skills.Looking after our in-house maintenance schedule & backing up the retail team are also part of Lockies responsibilities.
Backing everyone up out in the workshop is Bree Cranfield behind the reception desk & in administration. Bree is a young lady that is fairly new to the team & is studying Agri Businss by distance education, she currently works with us 3 days a week.
Together this team will help you find exactly what you need, show you around the yard and help you come up with the solutions to all your steel challenges.
This is more than a workplace. This is family. We do what we love and we love what we do.
