Company Overview

The Astro Group

The Astro Group is South Africa's leading aluminium surface finisher and one of the country's foremost suppliers of aluminium and aluminium products.

Our Origins

Founded in 1998

Astro Aluminium was founded in 1998 by our Group Managing Director, Andrew Dawson, to supply aluminium extrusions to the industry. These extrusions included standard sections in the form of angle iron and tubing, along with rolled product such as anodised quality sheet and tread plate.

The business soon evolved to accommodate the supply of purpose specific configurations needed by certain industries. An early objective was to establish a comprehensive manufacturing capability to produce high-quality finished and semi-finished products to client specification.

Astro Anodising was founded shortly thereafter to complement the supply side by offering anodising services to a broad spectrum of companies including those in the automotive and architectural sectors. Boasting the largest selection of colours and finishes available in the local market today, we are also proud of our capability to anodise work in sizes ranging from small components measured in millimetres right up to lengths of 7.5m.

Since those early years the group has grown from strength to strength widening its scope to include the manufacture of its own branded products aimed at a diversity of customers. 

Group Overview

The Astro Holdings Group is comprised of several companies with operating divisions focused on satisfying the requirements of end users of aluminium products in various industry sectors in South Africa.
