Macsteel’s Malawian business is divided into six sections:
Reinforcement steel division
In this section, we keep all ranges of steel diameters from 6mm to 32mm ( both high tensile deformed and round mild steel ). Part of this steel is sold without any processing whereas some of it is cut and bent according to engineering schedules. This section has steel fixers who are able to go on site and fix steel as required. Please refer to attached addendum for a list of some of our major contracts where we supplied and/or fixed reinforcing steel.
Roll forming / Roofing products division
This is where all our roofing sheet profiling is done. We have machines which form the IBR and CORRUGATED profiles. We work with all gauges from as thin as 0.20mm (32 gauge ) to as thick as 0.60mm (24 gauge). We produce both galvanized and chromadek (colour coated) sheets. Our capacity is about 20 tonnes per machine per day. Two roll formers are in Blantyre and two in Lilongwe. Part of this section is the plate bending area where all ridges, closures, and flashings are made. In addition our Kanengo factory is equipped to produce bull-nosed and cranked IBR sheets as required.
HARVEY ROOFING PRODUCTS are a new addition to our roofing products. Harveytile is now owned by Macsteel.
