We use Steel & Tube at work but have used Fletchers, very low volume though, the guys next door use Tata as well. Hayden would have some good hook ups I would think?

We mainly use Fletcher Steel and Steel and Tube. Tata NZ was bought out by Steel and Tube last year. Other suppliers up here are Vulcan Steel and HJ Asmuss.
If you need a lot of steel try get it through someone who buys a lot of steel and has a decent buy rate.
