About Global Roofing Solutions

Global Roofing Solutions (Pty) Ltd is one of the largest metal roofing manufacturers in South Africa. Global Roofing Solutions (GRS) is comprised of two leading South African roofing material manufacturing operations, GRS Brownbuilt (established in 1964) and GRS HH Robertson (established in 1958). The two companies came together in 2006 and formed GRS.

Brownbuilt pioneered the manufacturing of concealed fix roof profiles in South Africa with their “Brownbuilt” profile, and HH Robertson was the first company to introduce steel roof sheeting in South Africa, as well as the first manufacturer and specialist of pierced fix roofing.  Both Brownbuilt  and HH Robertson are household names for the manufacture of Commercial and Industrial steel-roof covering and wall-cladding profiles (Concealed fix and Pierced fix), composite steel floor decking profiles and lightweight coated metal roof tiles (ARMA-TILE™ and UNI-TILE™).

With exports to over 20 countries worldwide, GRS has established itself as the global supplier for roofing products. Through its broad and established South African manufacturing base, the company is committed to expanding its supply to South Africa’s construction sector throughout Africa. Over the last year GRS has also opened branches in Africa including Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Lesotho and Swaziland. GRS also boasts a mobile mill that is left in Africa, specifically for projects outside of where their branches are situated.

Please contact GRS for details on their International distributor network, and if they do not have one in your area they will supply you directly.
