Company Profile

Vulcan Steel

Vulcan Steel was founded by Peter Wells in Auckland in 1995 as a steel distribution business. 

The company has grown dramatically since then, both organically and through acquiring 10 established businesses. 

Vulcan entered the Australian market in 2002 through the acquisition of 50% of Horan Steel, and its most important purchase was Sandvik’s Australasian stainless steel distribution business in late 2014. It bought the remaining 50% of Horan Steel in 2019. 

The company is now in 16 locations around Australia, with 460 staff, and 13 locations in New Zealand, with 382 employees here. Last year it generated $451.1 million worth of sales in Australia and $280.4m in New Zealand.
