Our History

Isilo Steel Proprietary Limited was formed in February 2017, and the ownership deal was concluded in June 2017. In terms of the transactions, Isilo Investments acquired 51.12% in Isilo Steel. This has resulted in Isilo Steel being >51% black owned, with >30% being black women owned. Isilo Steel, as a black empowered business, seeks to ensure its trading model remains relevant to the rapidly changing steel environment. By diversifying our approach to the South African steel consumer, we aim to grow our customer base as opportunities present themselves. In addition to price and service, Isilo Steel will positively impact its customers’ B-BBEE ratings in relation to procurement because of its B-BBEE shareholding

Isilo Steel is a proudly South African, black owned steel trading and high volume steel procurement company offering many value add services to our clientele, operating within the steel industry in South Africa. The primary focus of the company is on using our detailed knowledge of steel products and the unique supply and production nuances derived from years of working closely with local and foreign suppliers, to fulfil the function of in-bound supply chain for steel-consuming business that may not be sufficiently geared or skilled to manage this process on their own.

Target Market

Isilo Steel targets managed-risk “blue chip” volume users of steel. These clients would typically require a product and supply chain solution for their volume requirements – complemented by a reliable short lead time solution for their occasional unplanned requirements. We assume responsibility for the buying process and relieve our clients off the stress and inconvenience associated with this. Our years of experience and social capital aid us in simplifying the buying and distribution process, particularly with respect to Mill Orders. We also supply lower volume users of steel in various Industries, particularly on the Structural Steel side.
