Meet Our Executives

Mahendra Patel​-Chairman

“I have been in steel since I apprenticed in it in 1968 while studying Metallurgy at Sheffield. We bought Kenya’s first rolling mill in 1969 and have been in steel since then. I have seen steel go from a labor-intensive network to fully integrated steel mills. With over 40 years in “a life of steel” Africa has gone through tremendous change, whereby today we must demand high production and quality products.”

Our chairman Mr Mahendra D Patel was recognized by KAM for over 50 years of achievement and service and contribution to the steel industry.
