About the Safal Group

The Safal Group is Africa’s largest supplier of Building Solutions that offer superior quality and lasting value to millions of customers on the continent.

Businesses in Eastern and Southern Africa supply a diverse range of markets and customers with brands that are trusted to perform and are market leaders in their field.

The Safal Group has two fields of core expertise:
• Safal Technology, used in its Metal Coating businesses
• Safal Engineering, used in its Building Solutions businesses

The Safal Coated Steel businesses manufacture metal coated and colour-coated steel which is specifically produced for use in African conditions.

The Safal Building Solutions businesses transform the coated steel into a range of proprietorial products such as sheeting and cladding systems, light steel trusses and decking, and even entire steel buildings ready to erect on site.

All Safal products are proudly designed and made in Africa with pride and care to world-class standards of performance. They are sold under respected brands that are trusted to deliver durability and long-term value.

A Proud Heritage

The Group opened its first manufacturing facility in Mombasa, Kenya in 1962. In 2003, all operating companies were reversed into the current holding company called Safal Investments Mauritius Limited, referred to as the Safal Group.

Today, the Safal Group manufactures a wide range of building solutions for the fast-growing construction markets of East Africa, exporting inwards to all adjacent countries in the greater region.

The insights and experience gathered over a period of 60 years and more enable the Safal Group to stay at the forefront in providing premier building systems and solutions that are backed up by decades of technical, design and engineering expertise.

Safintra is a proud member of SAMCRA and the SAISC

As leaders in the business solutions industry, we are proud to be affiliated with the following organisations:

Everyone acquainted with construction will agree that the extensive metal roofing industry, which plays such an important role in the environmental performance of buildings, is in urgent need of a make-over. The substitution of specified materials with inferior products, particularly in the emerging sector, has become rife with price prevailing over structural performance and durability. In an attempt to restore credibility in the industry concerned players, from all sectors, have formed the Southern African Metal Cladding and Roofing Association (SAMCRA).

​With access to experienced and qualified individuals, and over 60 years worth of local Southern African project case studies, the SAISC is well placed to assist with technical queries relating to Steel Construction and Structural Engineering.
