Company Profile

Company Profile content image

Sublime’s origins were founded through Pyromet Technologies (now Tenova Pyromet), an organisation specialising in smelting technology innovation and a major supplier to the South African and international metal processing industry.

Established in 2001 Sublime produces Silicon Carbide using state of the art Acheson Electric furnaces.

The privately owned and controlled company has grown in twelve short years to a capacity of over 50,000 tons per annum of various product grades manufactured from furnaces currently totaling 40 Megawatt.

The production facility is situated adjacent to one of South Africa’s clean coal fired power stations with ample room for further expansion, unlimited by space, raw materials or energy.

Consistent product quality and reliable supplies are key values at Sublime.  ISO 9001 (2008) best practice systems and processes are employed at all levels and in business disciplines throughout the company resulting in an established reputation for upholding these values recognised by local and export markets, including Europe, USA, Middle and Far East and Australasia amongst others.  Long term partnerships with key customers have played a leading role in Sublime’s continued strength and stability.

Although a relatively young company, re-investment in the business focuses on continually improved and increased capacity in downstream processing of products to meet a widening diversity in demand for silicon carbide products.
