Who we are

Metix (Pty) Ltd, as part of the SMS Group, is a leading global provider of process plants and engineering services for the pyrometallurgical industry spanning both the ferrous and non-ferrous sectors.  Our team of passionate and skilled engineers have developed specialised patented equipment for all types of furnaces and is fully geared to incorporate this equipment into larger turnkey projects that include technical and commercial guarantees.

Metix operates as a standalone business unit in South Africa from its headquarters in Johannesburg. We have a firmly entrenched flat hierarchy which makes us flexible to respond to customer demands; fast and straight forward. We focus on innovative strength, efficient metallurgical plants, cost competitiveness and experienced high calibre employees. The latest design and drawing tools are applied to deliver specific solutions that work.

Metix maintains its market position by continuously improving both its products and its customer service. In addition, we strive to provide the leadership, resources and training to its staff necessary to create an environment in which every member of our company can contribute towards the efficient delivery of  projects of the highest possible quality.

In 2011 the SMS Group acquired Metix to strengthen their presence worldwide. This resulted in Metix receiving an upgraded ‘toolbox’ of industry experience and a repertoire of unmatched metallurgical processes and technology. The ISO 9001:2008 company now combines more than 140 years of experience with the know-how of more than 700 smelter projects worldwide.
