The name ‘SCAW’ is synonymous with ‘steel and iron’ product manufacture. In Africa’s mining giant Zambia demand for steel products has been on the rise and one company that has leveraged off this demand is Scaw Zambia Ltd. With an operation in Kitwe on the Copperbelt province of Zambia Scaw Limited has built itself a successful track record second to none. A little trip down memory lane SCAW is a foundry business established in 1960 and was originally owned by the Anglo-American Corporation. In the early 1980’s it became a subsidiary of the Zambia Consolidated Copper Mines - ZCCM. In 1998, the company was re-privatized and it is currently owned by private investors who work closely with a management team of professionals. SCAW hires 500 citizens in Kitwe a mining town on the Copperbelt. How SCAW has diversified its product range over the years The steel company has since its privatization, evolved to be one of the largest and well known manufacturers of high chrome and forged ball grinding media, iron and steel castings, and industrial gases. Since inception, SCAW used to supply grinding media and castings exclusively to the mining industry. Since re-privatization in 1998, SCAW has diversified its operations to include other mining related industries such as aggregate crushing, Lime and Cement plants. SCAW has recently installed a state of the art, automatically controlled, electrically heated, tempering furnace for manufacturing high quality hammer forged balls. The furnace ensures strict and automated control of tempering so as to ensure consistent achievement of release of stresses in the ball while keeping the desired microstructure and hardness.
