About Us


Steel Tube and Profile Manufacturer

Welcome to the website of the fastest and most reliable steel tube and profile manufacturer in South Africa.

Started in 1977, Tubecon Africa has quickly become one of the leading manufacturers of cold formed steel and high strength steel products in South Africa. With our steel manufacturing facility in Pretoria, Gauteng and a branch in Cape Town, Tubecon is able to supply steel hollow sections, lip channels and open profiles, conduit and lancing tube with short lead times throughout South Africa and neighbouring countries.

Having started out by manufacturing and supplying round, square and rectangular steel tubes for the South African market, Tubecon has expanded by adding punched and rolled to size lip channels and open profiles to our steel product offering.

Our steel tube offering consist of the following:

Structural steel tubes: Round, Square and Rectangular Steel Tubes rolled from commercial grade mild steel, high tensile mild steel, high strength steel (Domex and Supraform).

Application Specific Tubes: These include steel conduit, oxygen or thermal lancing tubes, conveyor tubes, Borehole Casing Tubes, Air Heater Tubes and Water Pipes.

Profile Tubes: Cold formed hollow sections such as D-sections tubes, Flat and Elliptical Oval Tubes, and Domes Tubes. Though these are considered to be more standard, Tubecon specialises in the non-standards also.

Steel Conduit: Tubecon manufactures black and galvanized lightweight as well as screwed and socketed steel conduit.

Our Open Profile Offering consists of:

Lip and Open Channels: These can be rolled to size and punched inline from mild steel, high strength steel and pre-galvanized steel.

Customized Open Profile: These steel sections are not welded and customers are able to design sections such as steel top hats, thick cold formed channels, top and side rails for trailers and many more.

Tubecon focus on providing exceptional service throughout the buying process, from quoting to delivery, as well as after sales service. Tubecon fulfils both the roll of a steel manufacturer and merchant, supplying stocked steel tubes and lip channels in Gauteng one day after purchase. Having our own fleet of trucks enables us to supply steel tubes and lip channels to areas such as Durban, Pinetown, Bloemfontein, Rustenburg and our branch in Cape Town more than once a week.

We are known in the market for our fast lead times on both non-standard and standard steel products. The various round, rectangular or square steel tube sizes are manufactured frequently, rolling for stock and for custom lengths.
