The Master Steel team is an innovation-centric team of engineering and steel fabrication specialists, dedicated to solving challenging projects, with the highest quality standard, to ensure peace of mind for all our clients.
Gabe is passionate about advancing Australian manufacturing and improving our country’s commercial competitiveness. Since taking over Master Steel in 2018, they’ve realised annual revenue growth, grown the team, entered new markets and achieved Main Roads (TMR) accreditation to MRTS78.
His background in the resources and manufacturing sector spans more than a decade and numerous countries in South East Asia, the Middle East and East Coast of Australia. When combined with his love of innovation, Gabe is providing the leadership Master Steel needs so it can play a role in a brighter future for advanced manufacturing in Australia.
When he’s not planning the next phase of growth for Master Steel, Gabe enjoys staying connected with his Filipino community - whilst eating Mexican food. And if he’s not watching sports, he’s either out playing golf or taking care of his mental wellbeing with some meditation (which also helps when he’s had a bad day out on the golf course).
Unlike many from her generation, Bianca isn't interested in the vogue industries of today - IT, banking, fashion. Her passion lies in the sectors that others think of as too hard, too dirty or too boring to take on - heavy industry, manufacturing and the like. She’s a highly adaptable person, prepared to roll up her sleeves and loves being in a busy, fast paced environment.
Bianca started out with a background in architecture, design and behavioural studies. She worked in a number of businesses owned and run by her family, focused on retail, distribution and warehousing. Over time, her focus moved to logistics, accounts and operations, where she found her groove - helping operationalise systems, improve connectivity in front end teams and streamline back office functions e.g. point-of-sale (POS) and warehouse management (WMS) systems.
At Master Steel she is playing her part in taking over the reins from a previous generation of steel workers, ensuring a financially successful future for the company. When not giving her favourite calculator a workout, Bianca favours relaxing at home - be it a good binge watching session, cooking up a storm in the kitchen and keeping in touch with family.
With more than 30 years of experience in the field, Barry has made valuable contributions in the manufacturing & construction industry by supporting major projects that improve the daily lives of Australians and neighbouring countries in the Asia-Pacific region. This includes projects in mines, smelters, ports, process plants, and other major infrastructures for companies like BHP, Rio Tinto, Vale, Ausenco, KBR, SNC Lavalin, PanAust, Turner & Townsend, and BG Group (now Shell). Like many in the industry, he started out as an apprentice before becoming an operations manager and eventually a chief estimator.
Barry provides well-defined budget estimates for the projects assigned under his care. He provides his expertise to Master Steel, where he is responsible for improving tendering systems, training and assisting young estimators, and supplying fully-detailed cost estimates with back-up benchmarking. Throughout his career he has won tenders on different projects both locally and internationally including sites in Papua Guinea, Indonesia and China – markets which he envisions Master Steel will enter in longer term.
When he isn't absorbed in his Quest, Prism, and Excel databases, he enjoys watching Home and Away and spending time with his family and friends.
