INTEGRATED OPERATIONS

Our manufacturing facility at Hospet, Karnataka (known as Hospet Steels) was established in 1998.    It is an integrated steel mill, spread across 375 acres of greenery,  equipped with state-of-the-art technology in steel-making, finishing and testing facilities.   We produce steel through ore route, ensuring low tramp elements, low gas content and thus, high control on chemical and mechanical properties as per customers’ requirements. Further, our unit ensures maximum energy efficiency and cost efficiency through in-house power generation and complete waste re-utilization.
