WHY CHOOSE US?

100 year track record –
Trading since 1919

SA Metal Group is South Africa’s oldest and largest metal recycling company. Founded in 1919, when Wolfe Barnett first began collecting scrap metal for export to markets in industrialised countries, the Group has grown to become one of Southern Africa’s largest and most sophisticated metal recycling operations.

In 1946 the second generation joined the company and eventually took over the helm. The third generation joined the company in the early 1980s and the fourth in 2012.

The Group has a reputation for absolute integrity in all its dealings built up over the last hundred years.
