ABOUT

Launched some three decades ago, Zeus Raw Materials involve themselves as an agent and distributor of raw materials of a chemical nature to the South African market. With a focus on using a personal approach, Zeus believes (wherever possible) in carefully selected exclusive representations in order to satisfy niche market opportunities. The company’s main activities pivot around representation of its Principals’ interests and the distribution of raw materials, rather than trading in the accepted sense of the word. Accordingly, the products handled are usually from suppliers and Principals with whom the company has a close relationship.

The primary activities of Zeus Raw Materials fall into two main sections:

• Firstly, the Animal Feed Industry, where we do not seek to be all things to all people, favouring rather a focused approach and a committed belief in the concept of excellence.

• Secondly, it is with immense pride that we represent the South African interests of the Intermediate Chemicals Division of Ercros SA, of Spain. Our representation of this giant European chemical manufacturer is confined to the supply of Paraformaldehyde and Pentaerythritol, which finds application in (amongst other areas) coating and resins. The same products find application in certain other industries, and we are in the process of developing these speciality market sectors.
