For more than thirty years the Macsteel Group has been trading steel around the globe. From small beginnings in the Far East during the early 1980s, following the acquisition of trading house Leo Raphaely & Sons, the Group's steel trading operations are housed in the holding company Macsteel International Trading Holdings B.V. (MITHBV) and products are now traded through New York, Hong Kong, Australia and Dubai.
In the early years the majority of the steel was sourced from South African producer Iscor, renamed ArcelorMittal South Africa (AMSA), the largest steel producer in South Africa . Today, AMSA remains an important source of steel products to the Group along with other producers and suppliers around the globe.
