Company Overview

For over a century, the Spencer Gulf region of South Australia has been a major contributor to Australia's industrial revolution; energy -transport -construction -mining and minerals processing. From this industrial landscape, Gadaleta Steel Fabrication (GSF) was established to service the industrial heavy weights in the region.

GSF is a family-owned business with workshops in Port Pirie and Whyalla. It was first established in Port Pirie in 1993 where it was an owner operated business servicing Nyrstar in heavy fabrication works. In 2001 GSF purchased a heavy industrial site in Whyalla and commenced operation.

Since this time GSF has undergone exponential growth in all aspects of the business. The client base continues to grow to ensure it is a regional business servicing the Upper Spencer Gulf and surrounding region.
