Aluminium Balustrades Capability Statement
Our PROJECT PROFILE page gives you an overview of the wide variety of projects ABnc has worked on over the past 30+ years.
ABnc is 100 per cent Australian owned and operated, and has been manufacturing and supplying high-quality aluminium products for commercial and residential applications since March 1981. In that time, ABnc has supplied and installed quality products for a multitude of major building contractors in South East Queensland.
ABnc’s head office is based in South East Queensland and incorporates design and manufacturing facilities, including two fabrication workshops, a sales and administration block and mobile installation teams.

SKILL & EXPERIENCE
With an experienced and highly skilled team, ABnc has the expertise to provide its customers with products and services that are second to none.
The manufacturing and design team consists of qualified trades personnel, experienced production and project managers (who ensure each project progresses along a safe, planned path to completion), skilled installation technicians and long-term contractors who provide ABnc with the flexibility to confidently meet project deadlines. ABnc staff are qualified up to Diploma in Engineering Fabrication, Business Management and Occupational Health and Safety.
The majority of ABnc products are designed and manufactured by our in-house team of experts, right here in Australia. This means customers have direct access to design concepts and the manufacturing team, and will receive timely responses to queries and requests for design changes.
ABnc has a core team of 25 full-time employees, which is complemented by casual and contract team members. The depth and breadth of our skills and experience is extensive. This means we can deliver projects from design to completion, on time and on budget, with safety being paramount.
Our ability to build up our team for specialised projects using long-term contractors gives us the necessary flexibility to meet client and project needs. We typically supply and manage between 15-20 large projects each year, extending from South Brisbane up to Hervey Bay.
ABnc has the capability to manufacture, deliver and install products in remote locations. The frequent success of this type of delivery is a testament to our efficient quality management and high level of manufacturing skills.
At ABnc we regard our delivery performance as exceptional, and have never received a claim for liquidated damages. ABnc values safety, experience, quality and proactive communication, and our consultative approach allows for the smooth translation of client expectations into reality.
Our commitment to safe work practices enables us to partner well with site staff during the installation and supply of products.
ABnc values its employees and is committed to their ongoing development. We employ qualified staff to ensure delivery of a full range of products and services. ABnc maintains membership of relevant associations and attends conferences and training courses to remain informed of industry changes and emerging technologies. ABnc also actively participates in apprentice and trainee schemes to encourage employees to grow their depth of knowledge within the company.
