MÉTIER

metier-page
Métier Mixed Concrete (Métier) has been in operation since March 2007 and was acquired by SepHold in February 2013. The core business of Métier is the manufacture and supply of quality ready-mixed concrete products for the residential, commercial and industrial markets in South Africa. Métier has achieved significant growth by positioning its business in markets that offer strong and growing demand for its products. Métier’s initial geographic focus was in Durban and Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal, where it secured a fair market share, but the company has been extending its footprint to the Gauteng market where it has established four operations. Métier supplies a variety of standard and specialised high-value concretes to the construction industry.

Métier continues to explore viable expansion opportunities in all markets to enable it to grow market share and earnings. The short-term strategy is to ensure that the existing operations continue to operate successfully in order to generate earnings, reduce gearing and increase operating cash flows.
