© Reuse this Steel tube manufacturer Tubecon, established by Frans Tollenaar, has been supplying welded steel tube and profile to the Southern African market since 1977. The industries Tubecon is geared to supply include furniture, automotive and interior-design (cold-rolled material), but the entire range of industries it supplies includes construction, machine building and mining (heavy-gauge hot-rolled tube).



The company employs 130 people, undertakes its own distribution and logistics management, and adds value to the tube by cutting it to length, converting it into electrical conduit, and supplying bends, and so on.

Tubecon’s premises are at 5 Piet Rautenbach street, Rosslyn.

Manufacturing space at head office is 14 000 m², with total space, including the company’s branch in Cape Town, being 16 000 m².

“Combining the role of both stockholder and manufacturer in a manner that provides the customer with the comfort of speed and reliability at a competitive price poses the necessary challenges,” says a spokesperson for the company.

The engineering and software development required to control this complexity is done in-house by Tubecon.

Tubecon’s aim is to continue reducing lead times while increasing availability in a wide range of products, the spokesperson states.
