Fabrication Capacity Utilisation Survey Results (Member only resource)

ASI steel fabricator members were surveyed throughout 2020 to determine the level of existing steel fabrication capacity that was being utilised during each quarter. The purpose of the survey is to help build a picture of the extent to which local steel fabrication capacity is currently sitting idle. The perception amongst many decision makers that there is a lack of local capacity is often cited as a reason to go offshore for steel fabrication, and we want to counter this using credible facts and data drawn from ASI membership. The results can be viewed below.

ASI provides a range of technical documentation for our fabricators.
