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.

Astro Aluminium was founded in 1998 by our Managing Director, Andrew Dawson, to supply aluminium extrusions to the industry. These extrusions include 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.
The Astro Holdings Group is comprised of several companies with operating divisions focussed on satisfying the requirements of end users of aluminium products in various industry sectors in South Africa.
It is with great sadness that we have to report that Vanessa van Zyl, who was one of our longest serving staff members, has passed away recently due to serious illness. She had occupied the important role of Sales Manager.

In Remembrance of Vanessa van Zyl
As a company we express our gratitude for the life lead and contribution made by Vanessa. Aka Van-Van. We are sure that all our customers who had dealings with her will feel privileged to have known her. Getting along without her is most certainly going to be a real adjustment for all of us, not having her fiery personality and kind heart around anymore. What a beautiful friend, awesome team mate and colleague, and at times even shoulder to cry on. She will be dearly missed! She was a committed Astronian, a real part of the furniture, and Astro was really her home away from home. May her soul rest in peace. She will be forever remembered.
Our Financial Manager is Selina Chetty. She may be contacted on Tel: 011 452 9748
