Company Profile

Narrabri-Based, Palmer Steel Frame & Truss is in an expanding business with a reputation as steel framing professionals, whose expertise has brought the company contracts from a wide area of eastern Australia. 

The firm has developed an enviable reputation under Mr Len Palmer and son Mark as producers of  high quality steel frames for housing & commercial Developments. The firms steel roll-forming machines & custom-developed computer soft-ware is state of the art.  Palmer Steel Frame & Truss employs a staff of 12 with numerous subcontractors throughout Australia to assist with the erection of our products.   

The business has developed to a stage where it is a significant “ export “ business- steel frames from the Narrabri based operation are transported by local transport companies to Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Cairns and places in between & beyond. 

The firm has a current agreement for supplying the steel framework for all new McDonalds Family Restaurants. The firm has produced the steel framing for 150 McDonalds Restaurants built in Australia. 

The continuing growth of Palmer Steel Frame & Truss and the reputation it has established for quality service & product has not come overnight. Palmer Steel Frame & Truss began in the building industry 40 years ago and moved into steel house framing in 1976. The firm pioneered welded steel frames in the area and provided steel framing for homes & buildings across the North-West. In 1992 the firm was invited to look at a BHP air clinching system when it was in the development stage and were granted a license to produce the system when the process was perfected. Then in 1999 the firm made the decision to install their own roll-formers , allowing them to form their own 90 mm sections from raw coil material , and develop their own computer software for their own framing system registered as PalmerFrameâ & Palmertrussâ , which has been accepted as a superior frame than previous systems used.                                                                                                                                     In addition to McDonalds Palmer Steel Frame & Truss are Supplying steel framing to builders & owner builders in the North , North-West , New England & Hunter regions of NSW & ready to expand even further.

As a further step to increase the service and size of our company we have entered into the Metroll Group of companies, as of  Tuesday 1 July 2003 Metroll Pty Ltd purchased all interest in the business previously known as Palmer Steel Frame & Truss Steel Frames and Trusses. We personally feel that this will be a positive step forward for this company.  

The view of the management of Metroll Pty Ltd is to expand the market targeted by the Business, initially to include the East Coast centres, by way of supply of fully fabricated frames and trusses delivered from Narrabri, and subsequently by expanding the operations of the Business to include several other centres. This change will enable us to service our current customer base with even greater efficiency than before, as Metroll is one of the leading Australian manufacturers and suppliers of roofing, cladding, rainwater, and fencing products.     

This coupled with a national distribution service and outlets throughout Australia should give this company an increased edge in the steel frame market nationally. The company will trade as Palmer Frame & Truss.
