Axis House is a mining chemical distributor based in South Africa and Southern Democratic Republic of Congo. The company has product warehoused in Durban, Johannesburg and in the Katanga Province in the DRC. The administrative centres are in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Lubumbashi - where all offices are fully staffed with professional and experienced personnel.

We have a fully staffed and equipped metallurgical laboratory where we focus on flotation optimization with the use of our range of collectors, gangue depressants and frothers to achieve the optimum recoveries and grades - using the latest technology available.

Axis House has an innovative approach to the distribution of our reagent range. We have a team dedicated to the research and implementation of process benefits brought about by new reagent technologies. We have recognized that there are many products that have been developed but are not commercially available - it is our mission to allow our customers to evaluate these new reagents.

We are constantly looking at ways for our clients to reduce dosing costs and to improve recoveries and grades. Research is done on the clients' ore at our metallurgical laboratory in Cape Town.


Our management team has a strong export and logistic background and although the team might be young and aggressive, we have more than a century of export experience between us. It is this practical experience that has enabled us to understand our markets and to offer our clients a complete service from reagent design right through to metal production. Daily despatches ensure that we are able to ship those "small" yet important items at short notice, we do our own consolidations.


From reagent design to metal production, Axis House assists the client with their supply chain management ensuring that a comfortable balance is reached between the client stock holding and cash flow. The forward stock plan for each client is displayed to our client on our website and protected by passwords to ensure confidentiality.

From purchase order origination to final delivery, our clients are advised daily of the whereabouts of their cargo. They are given full details of transporters, despatch dates and daily tracking by email or by accessing their tracking schedule on our web site.
