Working with us
We take magnetite off your plate – orchestrating the magnetite value chain from sourcing to technical support with the shortest lead time in South Africa. That’s why many of our relationships with large coal mining companies in South Africa span several decades.
Our story started in South Africa in 1934. Since then we have continuously invested in our processing, logistical, technical, and support capabilities with a focus on safety. This has helped us become renowned in the mining industry as a highly consistent, high-quality magnetite supplier for dense media separation (DMS).
Mining Charter compliant level 4 BB-BEE accredited supplier.
At Martin and Robson, we have access to a variety of material sources within South Africa and across the rest of the world. That’s one of the ways we help guarantee your supply and remain competitively priced.
