We have been working towards finding stainless steel-based cost effective and sustainable solutions in different sectors such as Architecture building & construction, Water industry, Heavy Engineering, Automotive, Food & Beverage, Fertiliser industry, Pulp & Paper, Power etc. Our efforts are always focused

 

on utilising the excellent qualities of Stainless steel across all the sectors not only to enhance the cost effectiveness but also to save losses to the nation due to corrosion.

Today, Indian stainless-steel Industry offers a wide range of suitable application-oriented grades which can sustain all corrosive environments with improved mechanical properties and enhance the life of the construct product. Life Cycle costing, the major strength of stainless steel, has now been widely accepted and incorporated in Government policies. We still have a long way to go to enhance our per capita stainless-steel consumption from about 2.5 kg to at least the world average of 6 kg and beyond.
