GETTING TO KNOW SSAF SHEETMETAL
A Trusted Family Local Business
We are just as innovative and ambitious as we were since our founding in 1998. We have grown accustomed to working with people from various industries and companies of all sizes by providing quality fabrication services. We pride ourselves our delivering a knowledgeable, experienced, and local service to Townsville, and we extend those services to the greater Queensland region, and across Australia. SSAF Sheetmetal works to deliver quality goods that adhere to the highest standards and this is recognized and complimented through our national accreditation in Quality Safety, Environment, and Management Systems.
Looking back to our roots, SSAF Sheetmetal was launched in 1998 by founder Dick Beetham. Dick's son Mat Beetham joined the business soon after its foundation, after completing his Sheetmetal apprenticeship. Mat and Dick have been working alongside each other ever since. In 2013, Mat, and his wife Nikki, officially took complete ownership of SSAF Sheetmetal buying and moving the company to a bigger facility at 47 Macrossan Street, South Townsville, where it continues to trade today.
SSAF Sheetmetal has been operating for 25 years, and it is still a local, family-owned business. Dick Beetham remains a-part of the workforce, and he is still working on the tools, These days, however, he tries to find himself a bit of well-earned time to have play a round of golf or wet a line.
In the early years, SSAF forged its place in the fabrication game completing works for the hospitality industry with kitchen and bar fit-outs. The company built a strong reputation for work on trailer fabrication and tray and canopy builds. SSAF cemented its name in the marine sector, working on various vessel improvements, repairs, and modifications from trailer boats to commercial trawlers, even building specialty boats from scratch. The SSAF team continues to work with many local businesses still providing these services, although service capabilities have certainly increased over time.
As the years rolled by SSAF Sheetmetal grew, as did its specialized workforce. SSAF commenced business partnerships in the commercial and civil construction industries and expanded services to accommodate the growing region. SSAF has also become a provide for Specialized Marine Products tot he North Queensland Region.
Here at SSAF, we love what we do and love servicing our region. These days, SSAF proudly employs a number of talented, dedicated tradespeople and workers. We continue to grow the art and the trade by educating sheet metal and boilermakers apprentices each year and work with schools from our region to offer industry experience training.
The SSAF Sheetmetal workshop facility is located at 47 Macrossan Street, South Townsville, and welcomes your enquiry, no matter how big or small.
