The Able Pressed Metal Story


Able Pressed Metal was formed in 1979 as a repetition pressed metal production plant, and is locally owned and operated by Terry Crack and Brian Lind. With the advantage of our own tool room, we are able to provide a full turn key service from press tool design and engineering, production of components, quality control, packaging, labelling and transport. Our latest acquisition of extra plant and equipment, coupled with a redesigned factory and warehouse, allows us to provide you with a rapid turnaround time on your orders.


Our customer base includes many reputable and large suppliers to the local, national and international steel industry. These customers have chosen us to outsource their press production work because of our superb reputation across 30 years of experience in press metal production. Our attention to quality, reliability and reasonable costing on components is fundamental to our success. Our on-site team are experienced operators working directly with qualified engineers and toolmakers who ensure tooling and machinery are kept in their best working order, and that our products are to correct specification.


Some of our clients include self storage facilities as well as many large nationally based steel house frame and roofing suppliers.  We also manufacture products which have been used in the construction of Australia's rail network as well as components for the mining industry.  We are not just limited to producing components associated with our core product range.  We are versatile, and have proven success in accepting and conquering any challenge thrown our way.


We are committed to, and have proven success in, meeting deadlines and supply on demand, often quite urgently, whilst keeping a tight hold on the quality of the finished product.
