Weusthoff Trading has a long-standing history as a South African engineering firm. Celebrating its service excellence to a wide-spectrum of industrial clients, the company looks back on the past three decades with pride. The industrial holding company Dr. Weusthoff GmbH of Duesseldorf, Germany, opened a representative office in Johannesburg in 1981.Shortly afterwards the holding company registered Weusthoff South Africa (Pty) Ltd as a subsidiary. From the onset, the company focussed on the importation of special steels and related products.
Since its founding in 1981, the company supplied tool steels and special forgings from the Dr. Weusthoff GmbH’s Reckhammer Steel Works in Germany, and has been part of most of the larger engineering projects of the last 30 years, either directly or through its local engineering and trading partners. Weusthoff South Africa, for example, supplied tubing, piping and fittings to major past engineering and construction projects including SASOL II & III, the Matimba and Koeberg power stations, SA Brewery plants and SAPPI Ngodwana.
