Pro Roof Steel and Tube has been servicing the South African Steel Industry for more than 30 years. After starting out purely as a manufacturer of corrugated and IBR roof sheeting, they have grown immensely and now sport one of the most diverse product ranges in the country.
“Many players in the industry view us as a roofing company. But we are so much more than that” says Peter Potgieter, Sales Manager at Pro-Roof Steel and Tube. “By taking up the main sponsorship of Steel Awards 2018 in Gauteng, we aim to generate more awareness among the captains of industry of our diverse product range and capabilities” he adds.
“We endeavour to introduce ourselves to the architects, quantity surveyors, construction companies and consulting engineers with whom we have not yet had the privilege of doing business with” he concludes.
Pro-Roof Steel and Tube has an extensive range of products and services
Pro-Roof Steel and Tube currently has three operations, located in Vereeniging, Pretoria and Cape Town. A fourth, state of the art facility will soon to be added in Meyerton, which will have a melting capacity of 40 000 tons and a steelmaking capacity of 30 000 tons monthly. On completion the facility will have created 800 jobs, and be able to produce Angle, Channels, IPE Sections, Reinforcing, Flat Bar, Columns, Beams, Window Sections, Wire Rod and Square Bar.
Their current product range of tubing, lip channels, roofing, rainwater goods, flats sheets, long products, gates and fencing related products are supplied to steel merchants and end users in the building, construction, transportation, engineering and agricultural sectors
Their roofing division offers an array of rainwater goods along with cranking, curving and bull-nosing services. In order to adapt and compete effectively in these changing times the company has designed its own concealed fix profile, which has been used in various building projects such as Nissan SA in Rosslyn, Sasfin Premier Logistics in Kempton Park and Sky City in Alberton
Pro-Roof Steel and Tube entered the steelmaking industry in 2015 with the aim of supplying a range of angles, channels and IPE sections to the South African and its neighbouring countries.
The Pro-Roof Steel and Tube Service Centre offers slitting and cut to length of Hot Rolled, Cold Rolled and Galvanized coils up to and including 2000 x 16 mm plate.
The company’s tube nine tube mills and the range they manufacture has evolved substantially. Over the years they have gone from supplying light mill tubing to an array of tubing including large bore tubing up to 219 x 6.00 mm. Their recent SABS listing enables the organisation to grow its tubing range even further, allowing them to enter the structural and conveyance tube markets.
What makes Pro-roof a successful business?
Pro-roof Steel and Tube attributes its success to the fact that the top structure of the company is lean, mean and hands on. Productivity and expenses are closely monitored, and staff are driven to achieve.
“People are our most important asset,” says Rafik Mohamed CEO of the Pro Roof Group. “We ensure that our working environment is comfortable with open door policies throughout. Our business philosophy has always been to stay in touch with the market and change with the times, decide what we are good at and master it” he adds.
“In this economic climate, everyone will be trying harder than ever for the same business. Price, quality and service are all important, and managers will need to grow and maintain close working relationships with their customers” he concludes
Pro-Roof Steel and Tube is confident that opportunity exists in the steel construction industry to convince design teams to switch from conventional concrete buildings to steel. “The designs on display at the Steel Awards bear testament to what can be achieved with steel” asserts Noushad Ganey COO of the Pro Roof Group
