Pro Roof Steel Merchants entered the export market in 1998 and since then the group has been supplying various steel and allied products into numerous export markets in addition to our South African commitments.
The Cape Town operation was established in 1999 and the manufacturing capabilities of the group were further enhanced by acquiring the first of several tube mills. In 2001 the group branched into merchanting of structural steel sections and has since then grown to a force to be reckoned with in both the flat and long steel product markets.

In order to continuously increase the “national footprint” of the Pro Roof Group of Companies, the Pretoria operation was established in 2004. This Branch is currently the only Full Roofing Solution Provider in South Africa.
