With our passion for metals, coupled with our process know-how, we assist our clients in increasing their shareholder value, product quality and yield, reducing OPEX, whilst optimising plant life cycle for ironmaking, steelmaking, continuous casting, flat rolling plants, long product plants, pipe and tube plants, processing lines for hot and cold strips and furnace technology, forging technology, copper and aluminium plants, closed-die-forging, ring rolling and extrusion plants. As an integrated systems provider, we provide our clients with the most advanced levels of electrics and automation, also leading the market with our digitalisation and Industry 4.0 based digital solutions. 

With more than 13 000 employees based in more than 50 locations worldwide, we have developed a culture that is characterised by personal responsibility, honesty, team spirit and flat hierarchies, providing our clients with a diverse base of technical experts who can add value to their processing plants.

Some of the subsidiaries of the SMS group includes Paul Wurth (for blast furnaces and coking plants), Elexis (production automation, drive engineering, quality control), SMS Elotherm (for induction technology), Duma Bandzink (for air knives, zink pot equipment, electrostatic oiling machines), EMG Automation, and Esmech (cold rolling and strip processing lines).

With our increased focus on emerging markets, and especially the African market, the SMS group has developed various market-specific processing plant solutions.

The SMS group was established in South Africa in 1958. In 1973, Schloemann and Siemag merged. In 1979, we became Mannesmann Demag. In 1999, we became SMS Demag, and in March 2009, SMS Demag reverted to the name of SMS Siemag. In 2015, the SMS group consolidated all group companies, including SMS Meer & SMS Siemag, under the brand name SMS group. Today, from our local offices in Morningside, Sandton, we service our clients throughout the SADC region.
