Melbourne-made steel furniture from a Melbourne-made team.

Stronghold is a family-owned business making high volumes of steel office and industrial storage products in Campbellfield, Melbourne for over 20 years. We’re part of the Culpan Industries family, which has been creating top quality commercial furniture for over half a century.

Many of our staff have been here for years (and some for decades). Our brand is well known around Melbourne for our quality work and get-it-done attitude.

Let’s talk about how our steel furniture and storage products can make your next project great.

What’s important to us

We make things to fit exactly where you need them to fit, and do exactly what you need them to do.

Our products are found in environments where there’s important, sometimes hazardous work being done. Our role is to provide functional products that help people to get their job done.

Our Campbellfield factory

We make everything in our factory in Campbellfield, Melbourne. Our team of experienced machinists, engineers and product designers have worked on major infrastructure projects, complex manufacturing orders and all kinds of steel furniture and storage.

Because we don’t rely on importing our products, we can give you an added dimension of customisation to give you the perfect product for your project.
