About Us

Industrial Metal Profiling is a second-generation independent steel services centre, founded by Frikkie and Clint Koch. We have a diverse range of customers in construction, industrial and agricultural sectors, delivering on demand cut & supply for steel, stainless steel and aluminium. We pride ourselves on being large enough to tackle the big jobs but with family values to still care about the little ones.  We understand that your material needs to be properly managed, because improper fits can set construction back and affect the quality of the project.



We have been in the profiling business for over 18 years and today we’re one of the largest specialist steel service centres in KZN. 

We continue to invest in the latest cutting and automation technology to provide our customers with the highest quality cut parts in the shortest possible lead time. If you need quality formed components to get the project done, get in touch with us today.
