According to the World Steel Association (WSA), India became the second largest producer of crude steel in 2018. The increase in production of steel is followed up by the burgeoning infrastructure demand in the country. Numerous challenges are being faced by the clients on the grounds of quality and durability as highest quality raw materials are necessary for critical infrastructure projects such as bridges, dams, ports and airports. Most infrastructure projects prefer to use 500D or 550D grade material to ensure highest possible quality.
Electrotherm India Limited was established in the year 1986 at Gujarat. The company is one of the largest manufacturers of Induction Furnace which is used for steel making. The company set up its first fully integrated steel and pipe manufacturing unit in Kutch, Gujarat in the year 2005. It ensures the quality of the TMT bars according to standards set by Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). The company not only has the right equipment for production but also follows the best operating practices and possesses testing laboratories which ensure the consistency of quality.
