Our Team

The Team has over 80 years combined experience in dealing with customers at all levels - the home handy man, the do-it-yourself-er, the government department, the tradesman, the manufacturer, the school student or the better-half. When you deal with Ezimetal Raymond Terrace, you're dealing with a team that has carved out a unique place for itself within the steel industry.

Warren Lawrence 



"Woc" has lived and worked in the Raymond Terrace area all his life. He's been managing Ezimetal Raymond Terrace since 1999. Previous experience in the building industry has given him a unique insight into the needs of his customers. Woc's suppliers know he drives a hard bargain, and his customers know they always get good value and good advice when they deal with him.

Erin Black


Woc's daughter, Erin, joined the team in 2015 and has been a great asset since coming on board. She's a quick learner and has become a familiar friendly face behind the counter, helping customers out and adding that feminine touch to the place.

Get to know her, and you'll be glad you did!
