AfriSam is a leading construction materials group in southern Africa.
Since establishing its first cement plant in 1934, the company has grown into a formidable group with operations in South Africa, Lesotho, Eswatini and Tanzania
Driven by our core company values of People, Planet and Performance, we are committed to building a positive African future. It is this passion and commitment that we are most proud of, not of the products we make, but rather of what our products make possible – we create concrete possibilities.
In southern Africa, AfriSam has an annual installed cement production capacity of 4.5 million tons, which is produced from our seven production facilities and distributed to customers through strategically-located distribution centres. AfriSam’s slagment operation in Vanderbijlpark can produce 800 000 tons of Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag (GGBFS) per year.
Our readymix concrete business has a total annual production capacity of 2 million cubic meters of concrete and can produce almost any concrete mix required by customers. We also have the capacity to produce in excess of 7 million tons of aggregate from our aggregate operations every year.
Our national footprint, production capacity and technical expertise make us the perfect partner for any construction project, big or small.
