We’ve been operating in the pipe repair industry for over 20 years. Due to client demand, we branched out a decade ago as a holistic industrial supply business, consistently focusing upon offering the best available products to assist you in your everyday, as well as emergency, requirements.

In an ever-changing industrial landscape,we’ve grown into Cape Trader, a multifaceted industrial solutions company, offering personalized service and a comprehensive selection of products.

Cape Trader meets the needs of countless industrial clients through a multi-national distribution network – with a large focus on private and government-owned mining companies – in and around South Africa, Africa and European countries.

Delivering first-class products, we stay ahead of an increasingly competitive market by maintaining a strong interactive relationship with their clients and by expanding their product offering where we see a market gap.



“To ensure a safer working environment for all industry where piping is a major consideration for productivity and continuity while at the same time providing a suitable return on investment for all stakeholders including the shareholders, staff, community and environment of the company”

Our main market started in mining, now we’re proud to operate in the shipping, automotive, industrial and agricultural sectors. We meet consumer and business needs daily, from car garages to personal, home use – from government requirements, to farming emergencies.


The key competitive advantages of Cape Trader lies not just in our two decades of experience but in our ownership of one of South Africa’s most widely used pipeline repair wraps, our ability to source must-needed products and our network capabilities and business connections within the industry – our clients are longstanding and we’re regularly recommended
