Steel German industries are well integrated in the international distribution. Currently, 75% of the German export marked is located inside the European Union. The export of over production with the other country increases from 1.8 million tons in 2011 to 3 million tons in 2012

  • No feeds found!
  • EAS Company is specialized in scrap pre-treatment. Composed by engineers, senior technicians and qualified manpower, our team allows us to have an optimized storing space and a very sharp sorting of metallic and non-metallic scraps.
  • For the big scrap fields, we move to perform an “on site work”, since we have our own logistic solutions.
  • « East Africa Steel » works on the whole East Africa region. We have local and international partners, and we deliver our costumer all around the word by sea transport.
  • We respond to specific needs for modern metallurgy, in fact « EAS » company is specialized in metallic scrap cutting, which is optimized for blast furnace.

Our Method

Simple and efficient, the operation procedure designed by “East Africa Steel” allows to have, in a very short time, a product that applies to international norms of ferrous scrap recycling.
In fact, our procedure takes place in four phases.

Preparation Phase:
It’s a phase of a sharp sorting of the scrap and separation between ferrous and nonferrous material, such as boning vehicles carcasses

Cutting Phase:
Depending on the nature and thickness, several methods are used

  • Flame cutting: we use blowtorch with gas mixture (Oxygen and acetylene or benzene)
  • Machine cutting: using manual (cutting pliers) or semi-automatic tools (disc gridding). This method is generally used for flat sheet metal.
  • Shearing: using cutting machines by guillotine or crocodile stress force, allows generally to obtain a final product on desired dimensions.

Sorting Phase:
After the end of cutting phase, a sharp soting is performed by “East Africa Steel” teams on the cut scrap. This phase allows us to classify the scrap on two categories:

  • HMS1: Plates lower than 4 mm thickness
  • HMS2: Plates greater than 4 mm thickness

Packaging and export phase:
Depending on the customer demand, such as the blast furnace companies, we prepare the cut scrap for maritime transport. Either in containers, or in bulk on specialized ships.
