Company History Since 1911 The company’s history can be tracked back to 1911 during which time it was trading as the Union Steel Corporation of South Africa (USCO). In 1972, the non-ferrous manufacturing facility was established, producing copper wire, conductors and strip products. 34 years later the first aluminium conductor was produced and in 1980, XLPE cable was introduced into the company’s product range. In 1998, USCO sold it’s manufacturing facilities to Malesela Technologies a 100% black-owned company. In line with the group’s philosophy of creating strategic partnerships to source technology and skills, Malesela Taihan Electric Cable (Pty) Ltd, a BEE company, acquired 100% of Malesela Technologies as a going concern in 2000. Malesela Taihan Electric Cable (Pty) Ltd has two shareholders: Korea’s Taihan Electric Wire Company Limited, which is one of the top 10 in the world in this sector, and Malesela Holdings B-BBEEE company.
