[Business Bio Heading] UniCote® Steel: Redefining Excellence in Australian Architecture

[Anniversary Highlight] Celebrating 10 Years of Excellence

[Our Journey] 

For nearly a decade, UniCote® Steel has been the trusted choice of Australians when it comes to safeguarding their most prized possessions or bringing visionary designs to life. Over this remarkable journey, we've become known and loved for our unwavering commitment to superior quality, unparalleled performance, and innovative solutions.

[A Versatile Solution] 

While we are extremely popular for roofing applications, UniCote® goes beyond that. It's increasingly gaining popularity as an exterior cladding material, offering a contemporary aesthetic that pairs seamlessly with materials like wood and concrete. From barn-like structures to industrial-chic designs, UniCote® unlocks limitless architectural possibilities.


[Designed for Australia's Landscapes] 

Australia's diverse landscapes, from the sun-drenched outback to rugged coastal zones, demand versatile solutions. No matter your location or project, UniCote® has you covered. Our colour range draws inspiration from Australia's stunning landscapes, offering timeless classics and trendy hues. We also lean into our innovative nature by introducing unique patterned and textured finishes.


[Innovation in Design] 

At UniCote®, we understand that design trends evolve, and technology continually enhances the performance of steel building materials. In 2019, we made a resounding statement of innovation and design prowess by introducing one of the very first patterned and textured painted steels – UniCote® LUX. This ground-breaking product caters to the emerging trends in modern home design across Australia, setting new benchmarks in aesthetics and durability.


[The Force Behind UniCote®]

UniCote® was developed as the result of a formidable partnership between two industry leaders – Selection Steel and Dongkuk Steel.


[Selection Steel: Australian Owned, Independently Operated, Trusted Since 1971] 

Selection Steel, an Australian-owned and independently operated company, has been a cornerstone of the industry since 1971. With over four decades of experience, Selection Steel is the name professionals trust and recommend for pre-painted colour steel in the Australian market. Our company's foundation is deeply rooted in a commitment to customer service, a culture that has grown to span the entirety of Australia. We are privately owned and operated, with a relentless focus on exceeding customer expectations and ensuring that our legacy of excellence endures.


[Dongkuk Steel: Leading the Way Since 1954, Shaping the Future of Pre-Painted Color Steel] 

Dongkuk Steel, a renowned leader in the Korean steel market since 1954, has been at the forefront of colour steel production for over five decades. Their unwavering dedication to innovation in pre-painted colour steel continually pushes the boundaries of technological advancement. Dongkuk Steel proudly counts industry giants like Samsung, Whirlpool, and Electrolux among its key customers. Currently, Dongkuk produces over a staggering 900,000 tonnes of colour steel annually, with an unyielding vision to remain the world's premier pre-painted steel company.


[Our Commitment to You] 

At UniCote®, we transcend the conventional role of a steel company; we become your steadfast partner in turning your architectural dreams into reality. Our dedicated team is unwavering in its commitment to excellence, innovation, and sustainability as we collaboratively redefine the possibilities of coloured steel. With UniCote®, you're not just constructing structures; you're forging legacies, enhancing steel's strength, beauty, and sustainability. Our mission is to reshape the very essence of steel within the Australian landscape.


[Anniversary Message] 

As we celebrate a decade of excellence in 2024, thank you for choosing UniCote® Steel as your partner in innovation and design. Together, we will continue to shape the future of steel and set new standards of excellence for generations to come.
