Who We Are
Stephen Wilkinson, Director
From upmarket homes on the Clifton seaboard to the BMW headquarters in Midrand, Stephen’s expert knowledge of roofing and façade applications, gained from 22 years of consultation, has been integral to the success of Rheinzink in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Stephen has worked in the construction industry since the early 70s in South Africa. He then spent 11 years in the UK, including seven at Rheinzink, consulting architects from London to the north of Scotland, before bringing the German zinc giant to Sub-Saharan Africa in 2005.
Over a span of 15 years he established the brand that has been used in more than 600 projects in South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya and Namibia, including huge Sandton office blocks and lecture theatres on four university campuses.
Stephen started Wilkinson Architectural Metals in 2020, representing Rheinzink’s titanium zinc alongside two new additions: Aurubis’ Nordic Copper and Haushaut’s aluminium. They bring a different dimension to roofing and façade cladding, and an exciting new copper product to the world of interior design.
Beyond construction, Stephen has a life-long passion for sailing. He was part of the 15-man crew that competed in the 1979 Cape to Uruguay race on the 72 ft sloop Kwa Heri, taking line honours after their 25-day Atlantic crossing.
Stephen lives in Cape Town with his wife Anne and still enjoys getting out onto the water as often as he can.
