    About Us

Weusthoff has been servicing the engineering industry for nearly 35 years with a comprehensive range of steel products and non-ferrous metals.



Weusthoff Trading has a long-standing history as a South African engineering supplier. 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 German principals registered Weusthoff South Africa (Pty) Ltd as a subsidiary, which was bought out by management in 1986. From the onset the company focused 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 ll & lll, the Matimba and Koeberg power stations, SA Brewery plants and SAPPI Ngodwana.


The company has evolved into a specialised steel and metals supplier covering the full spectrum of the South African industry from mining and extraction, paper and pulp and fertilizer to power generation.

Today, as a leading supplier of special steels and engineering equipment, Weusthoff Trading does business with most of South Africa's main engineering fabricators.


The company has a proud record off in-house training and co-operates closely with the commercial training programmes offered through the SA-German Chamber of Trade & Industry and its relevant SETA.


Over the years the company has developed a team of professional staff members, some of whom have since, become shareholders in the business.

The company's experienced staff, most boasting long service records, provide the technical, commercial, logistical and management qualities Weusthoff's customers expect from the company, enabling it to supply services with a high level of expertise and commitment to support the industry, not only in South Africa, but across the southern African region.
