Post reforms and liberalization in early 90’s, the manufacturing sector witnessed unprecedented growth, and KSL identified tremendous potential beyond serving the in-house requirements. There was a need to grow, upgrade, diversify and economize. Thus, KSL shifted base to Hospet, Karnataka, to set up a world class integrated steel mill (iron-ore based, blast-furnace route) in 1997, with a hot metal capacity of 2,90,000 TPA. This establishment was of extreme strategic importance, with southern region being a budding automotive hub, and Karnataka being a state rich in Iron Ore, along with Mangalore port for other raw material imports. With its Head Office in West (Pune) and Plant in South, Kalyani Steels steadily gained a nationwide foothold.
