Group snapshot

Scaw is one of South Africa’s largest integrated producers of speciality steel products for the mining, construction, industrial, power and rail sectors, with established operations, distribution and marketing channels globally. We boast a substantial footprint of manufacturing plants, mills and foundries across South Africa and internationally.

Integral to our growing business is the recycling of scrap metal into value-added secondary steel products for a wide range of industries, both locally and internationally.

With roots dating back to the 1920s, Scaw was formed in 1998 from the merger of two steel manufacturing giants, Scaw Metals and Haggie Limited. In November 2012, the IDC acquired a 74% stake, driving renewed growth strategy.
