We’re a company stocking, trading and distributing Steel, Stainless Steel, Tin Plate and other speciality products in New Zealand, Australia and the Pacific Islands. We co-founded the steel industry in New Zealand over 60 years ago, and we’re still the family owned and operated company that will look after you today.

Order from our stocked products or let us know your steel needs and we will create a tailored solution. Whatever you’re after, our experience and reputation makes us the right supplier to help you get your job done right.

Our reputation is and always has been based on credibility, innovation, quality and reliability. This credibility has resulted in us supplying major infrastructure projects to smaller tailored jobs on time.

“What drives us in R C Macdonald Ltd is the principle to reinvent our business, to be compatible with the market environment of tomorrow, whilst never forgetting our history.”
-John Macdonald, Managing Director
