About Us

Since a humble beginning in 1929, Cape Gate Fence & Wire Works (Pty) Ltd has established itself as a market leader in the steel industry and its associated lines of business. The Cape Gate Group has grown to be the largest privately-owned steel mill in South Africa at Van Der Bijl Park, now controlling the steel manufacturing processes from raw materials through to final products. Only South African steel is used and this guarantees very high quality at a constant grade.

We manufacture products for various industries including agriculture, retail & warehousing, building & construction and more.

The Cape Town factory is located 33 kilometres outside the city in Parow, close to major air, sea and rail ports, allowing efficient service to both national and international markets. Sales or manufacturing outlets are also located in Johannesburg, Bloemfontein, Port Elizabeth, Durban and George, with other interests in the United Kingdom and Israel.

With over seventy years of experience and by staying abreast of technology, they are proud suppliers of quality materials and excellent service at very competitive pricing levels. The Cape Town facility is well-equipped with the latest machinery in the field. Many of their products bear the SABS mark of approval, or comply with SABS standards.

Cape Gate is immensely proud to be a South African company, with an established reputation for integrity and community responsibility. Cape Gate believes in investing in its employees by focusing on empowerment through education, and has been doing so since its inception.

In the future, Cape Gate will continue to play a major role in the steel industry in Southern Africa by setting new standards of efficiency and competitiveness, with ongoing new product development, and by focusing on entering and developing new markets internationally.
