MMI Steel is one of the largest stockists of all kinds of structural steel and industrial steel in Zambia and the region. The company is managed by a highly experienced professional and technical team. MMI Steel focuses more on its customers’ satisfaction and is dedicated to fulfilling all their needs.
The manufacturing process
MM Integrated Steel manufactures its own steel products. In Lusaka the company has two factories – one is a cold rolling mill and the other a galvanising plant. The cold rolling process involves the conversion of hot rolled coils into cold rolled coils by reducing the thickness of the coils from about 2mm to 0.18–0.5 mm. resp.
The galvanising process involves passing the cold rolled coils through a series of solvents to clean the surface and then into a zinc bath for galvanising. Galvanised coils are used to manufacture roofing sheets with an assortment of profiles.
MM Integrated Steel's galvanising plant uses the latest technology and computerised systems. The company imports a range of quality raw materials to produce their high grade galvanised iron sheets, including hot rolled steel coils 2mm to 3mm wide, 99.95% pure zinc ingots and various chemicals.
The company has a stocking capacity of over 2000 metric tonnes. Steel is imported from South Africa and other parts of the world at competitive prices. The total capacity of the plant is estimated at 48,000 metric tonnes of galvanised cold rolled steel products.
Structural and industrial steel
MM Integrated Steel stocks and supplies a wide range of high grade structural steel including plates, checker plates, beams, IPE’s, columns, channels, angles, bars, GI pipes, Benox plates, conforce, binding wire, roofing nails and expanded metal. These are superior in terms of strength, efficiency, higher axel and bending, load bearing capacities and workability.
Open section and close section
MM Integrated Steel is one of the biggest manufacturers of HSS (Hollow Structured Sections). This HSS is used as a structural element in buildings, bridges and other structures, and in a wide variety of manufactured products. This company produces round, square and rectangular shapes in a broad range of sizes and gauges. MM Integrated Steel also produces casing pipe, which is used in bore-hole drilling.
MM Integrated Steel manufactures wire nails, which are packed in suitable packaging systems to avoid rusting.
With a network of distributors and dealers throughout Zambia and the region, many construction companies, corporations and government departments place their orders with this company, directly or indirectly.
