Product development and brand building are critical to our future growth. BlueScope Steel offers many highly regarded brands to the market, and these represent important assets to our business. In Australia, our core brands - COLORBOND®, ZINCALUME®, and XLERPLATE® steels and the LYSAGHT® range - are market leaders in the building, construction, and manufacturing industries.

Our BlueScope Water business adds more brands to our portfolio, including HYDRORIB® drainage pipes, WATERPOINT® rainwater tanks, AGRIRIB® low-pressure irrigation pipe, and GALAXYTM water tanks. While our Butler Manufacturing business brings us the iconic BUTLER® brand, as well as the VISTAWALLTM architectural product range. Region-specific brands, such as new Clean COLORBOND® steel, enhance our reputation as a provider of solutions for demanding conditions.

We are constantly looking for ways to leverage our brands. Two examples are fencing made from COLORBOND® steel and our TRUECORE® steel house framing. We are also expanding our renowned LYSAGHT® range of steel building solutions across our global footprint.

During the year, we introduced a customer partnership program to further increase the value of the BlueScope Steel brand. The program, named 'Steel By' allows our customers to benefit from our Company brand through the inclusion of the BlueScope Steel partnership logo in their promotional material. This logo is accompanied by the statements: 'Steel Manufactured By BlueScope Steel' or 'Steel Supplied By BlueScope Steel.'
