The Safal Steel Story

July 13, 2023

The Safal Group is a leading steel manufacturer in Africa, with a strong presence in South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and Rwanda

Emerging from the Safal Group, which gave rise to Safal Steel in 2008, the company’s story is one of resilience, innovation, and commitment to excellence. Safal Steel has invested heavily in research and development, constantly seeking new ways to improve its products and processes. Its focus on innovation has led to the introduction of Zincal® technology, which combines zinc and aluminium to create a corrosion-resistant coating for steel.

“We are committed to sustainable manufacturing practices and we have implemented various initiatives to reduce our carbon footprint and promote environmental conservation.”

Furthermore, Safal Steel’s rigorous quality control system ensures that every product that leaves its factory meets the highest standards of quality and reliability.
