About UsWho we are.

We are Africa’s thought leader in world-class sustainable building solutions. Our goal is to positively and meaningfully impact the economy, together with the makers, developers and creators who wish to make their mark on African soil. We believe a building is a story about purposeful creation and human flourishing and our dream is to bring this to life.

Welcome to the Safal Steel family

Safal Steel is the single largest investment for the Safal Group exceeding R1.5 billion. We are the only producer of Aluminium-Zinc coated products in South Africa – a process that is both capital intensive and dependent on complex modern technology. We also locally manufacture international-quality pre-painted coils, substituting imports and positively impacting the trade deficit.

Our products are ideally suited for Southern African climates and adhere to stringent quality parameters. A proudly South African company, our factory in KwaZulu-Natal supplies coated steel coils to local and global markets, bringing new skills and employment to the area. Furthermore, our corporate social responsibility initiatives focus on local community development.
