About Us

Our Story

Manufacturing passion and perfection for over 35 years

It was in 1985 that steel perfectionist John Sturm first applied his passion and innovative mind to stainless steel fabrication. Almost 30 years later new owners, the South Australian Richards family, took on his legacy to create a successful business built on expertise and integrity.

Backed by a tight-knit group of like-minded, dedicated employees, Managing Director Andrew Richards has steered the Sturm’s Group from strength to strength. Repeat business and referrals continue to underpin our growth in fabrication and installation projects across industry sectors from aged care, to mining and defence, education, hospitality, retail, office and commercial, plus more.

We are proud to be a great South Australian company, employing great South Australians. Our people work together to apply our specialist expertise, in-house design capability, dedication to detail, the highest standards in manufacturing and environmental management and our cutting-edge technology including 3D modelling, 3D scanning and 3D printing to every job, no matter how big or small.

Our Vision and Mission

We continually strive to provide the best solutions using only quality materials. At the heart of everything we do is our drive to be reliable, trustworthy and build great relationships with every customer – from the one who brings in a drawing on a drink coaster through to sophisticated Government entities.

Our Values

Our values are centred on achieving nothing but the best result for our clients. As such, we strive to work hard as a team, act with fairness and integrity and provide the solution to our clients’ needs at a value for money price.
