Rocklea Pressed Metal

Rockpress – Rocklea Pressed Metal – has been in business since 1972 and has grown to become one of Brisbane’s most highly-regarded steel fabrication suppliers.

While Rockpress can supply “off the shelf” materials in steel and other metals, our real expertise is in manufacturing and fabricating custom-made work – either for one-off projects or in quantities for ongoing or high volume demand.


  • We have approximately 12,000m2 of factory floor space, capable of handling work of any size or volume.
  • We have 100+ staff, so we have the resources to deliver your job when you want it. All our workshop staff are tested and qualified to key Australian Standards, as well as being skilled in traditional steel manufacturing techniques.
  • Rockpress continues to invest in the latest metal manufacturing technology and equipment, to ensure our manufacture and finishing processes result in workmanship with absolute precision.
