From Humble Beginnings

NN Metals was founded in 1985 by Pieter Human an aspiring entrepreneur from New Castle, Natal. With an old Bedford truck which he traded for his car and R200.00 in working capital he created one of the largest recycling organisations in Gauteng.

In 1996 he relocated to Pretoria and from here he expanded the NN Metals footprint nationally and cross border into Botswana and Namibia.

Our experienced workforce of 600 personnel along with state of the art equipment enables us to service our clients, ranging from the private individual to contracting for various blue chip companies.
