Water Storage Experts for the Southern Wheatbelt

A family business with decades of experience with Pioneer Water Tanks

Barry and Marion were one of the first Pioneer Water Tank Dealers back in the 1990's prior to becoming Price's Fabrication + Steel, and were often assisted by Jon on tank builds, with Jon becoming more involved as time went on.


Back before the formation of Price's Fabrication + Steel, Barry and Marion used to make the trip to Perth to collect water tanks from the manufacturing premises, and drive them back out to the Wheatbelt. Back when Pioneer used to manufacture gazebo’s and swimming pools – Barry completing a gazebo installation and Marion filling sand bags.


Nowadays the tanks are delivered direct to Price’s Fabrication + Steel owners Barry, Marion, Jon and Tracey, as they are to Dealers all across Australia, straight from the Bellevue factory, saving time and money, and helping to increase the number of tanks the team at Price's Fabrication + Steel can install.


With decades of experience in water storage solutions - working with Pioneer Water Tanks for close to 30 years - Price's Fabrication + Steel also build agricultural sheds and sell steel, along with being a Master Dealer for Pioneer Water Tanks.

There's a fair bit of history with Price's Fabrication + Steel and Pioneer Water Tanks.

With many years of experience working in agricultural settings, the team at Price's were able to identify a need for high quality, tailor made sheds and an erection service to match.


Growing as a company with an expanding team over the space of a decade, a significant boost in water tank sales was seen when Rachel Duff joined the team as a dedicated tank sales officer, winning the Rod Hurst customer service award at the 2022 Pioneer Dealer awards, along with Price's taking home Business Growth and Rolling Growth awards.


Working in both water storage and shed construction goes hand in hand, particularly in rural areas where rain may be scarce, sheds provide a valuable rainwater harvesting tool, with a rainwater tank being a great accompaniment.

We aim to at all times maintain the utmost levels of service for our customers and strive to place ourselves at the forefront of the steel shed manufacturing and erection and water tank installation industries. Locals supporting locals is our motto.

JON PRICE

Owner - Price's Fabrication + Steel

Locals supporting locals

Currently based out of Williams in their newly completed and built for purpose facility, the team at Price's Fabrication + Steel know the importance of being local to the area you work in - one of the key pillars of the Pioneer Dealer Direct® Network.


"We aim to at all times maintain the utmost levels of service for our customers and strive to place ourselves at the forefront of the steel shed manufacturing and erection and water tank installation industries," said Jon of their company values, "Locals supporting locals is our motto,"


The company has a dedication to customer service and a knowledge of their local area. Everyone at Price's Fabrication + Steel is born and bred country; Barry grew up in Kulin and moved to Narrogin with Marion to raise their children, Jon, Alicen, Tina and Katelyn. Tracey and Jon grew up in the Wheatbelt and live in Williams.


"The relaxed country vibe, strong community ethos, sporting opportunities of the region keep us all here. With our most frequented destinations within a 2 hour drive, there is no where else we would rather be," Barry said, "Predominantly we assist primary producers with on farm water storage needs for crop spraying and livestock. New home builds in the area with many people wanting to move to rural WA for a ‘tree change’. We are very lucky to work with the customers we do,"


Field Days having been an integral part of the Price’s tank journey – they have attended Wagin Woolorama and Newdegate Field Day for decades, giving them the opportunity to meet and talk to primary producers and other businesses in the region, and further strengthening their knowledge of the local area.

Water by trade, water by passion

For the team at Price's Fabrication + Steel, Water Tanks and Shed construction might be how they make a living, but water activities is how they spend their downtime.


When they're not out building high quality sheds and rainwater tanks for customers in the Wheatbelt, you'll find the Price's enjoying family time house boating, swimming to or around Rottnest, and taking weekend trips to the Busselton Jetty.


The team also works with the local community, sponsoring or assisting with a number of community events. They were a major sponsor of the 2021 Williams National Ag Day Firework Celebration, GenAg Kulin 2021 as well as providing annual sponsorship to a number of local sporting teams; including hockey, football, golf and netball.


Price's Fabrication + Steel also made a donation of a rainwater tank to the new RDFS facility in Narrogin via St John Ambulance, and have assisted in the construction of school shade structures, hockey dugouts, trotting stalls and the Williams Men's Shed.

Faith in the product

The sign of a good product is knowing that the person providing it uses that product themselves, because who would know better the quality of a product than those selling or constructing it?


The team at Price's Fabrication + Steel have all had Pioneer Water Tanks installed.


Barry and Marion have 4 Pioneer tanks in total including 3-Ring GTi163 in Zincalume® at their home, providing 163,480L of water storage for both residential and stock water use.


Jon and Tracey went with a GT90, just to provide water to the home, in a Woodland Grey® Colorbond® finish, as not only does it give them water security, but their kids - like many rural kids do - love the rainwater taste.


Rachel opted for two G80's - also in the Woodland Grey® - to provide water for the home, and also to irrigate her colourful and fragrant garden.


Not content just to have Pioneer Water Tanks at their homes, the team also have a big 3-Ring GTi 192, in - you guessed it - Woodland Grey®, providing water to the Price's Fabrication + Steel workshop, providing a sizable 191,862L of water storage on site.
