About JSW Steel

JSW Steel is India’s leading private sector steel producer and among the world’s most illustrious steel companies.

JSW Steel is around $9 billion global conglomerate spread over six locations in India and a footprint that extends to the US, South America and Africa.

The flagship company of around $11 billion JSW Group, JSW Steel is testament to decades of experience and a dynamic culture that have culminated in the company becoming the leading provider of specialised steels in India.

JSW Steel’s business vision is centered on sustainability. We realise that only by creating a sustainable future can we pave the way for our goal of a self-reliant India. This belief has always stood us in good stead. With a conviction in our values, we have grown from a single steel mill in 1982 to the large operations that define us today.

JSW Steel is a pioneer in the use of innovative technology that keeps us ahead of the curve. Not only do we offer the widest product portfolio in India, we also further leverage our capability to customise offerings to match customer expectations.

Our strategy of always staying on the leading edge of technical advancement has led to partnerships with global sector leaders such as JFE Steel, Marubeni Itochu Steel, Praxair and Severfield Rowen Plc. This technological edge has helped our plants rank among the lowest-cost steel producers in the world.

The strong focus on innovation and R&D has led to JSW Steel being recognised worldwide as a purveyor of high-end, value-added steel. Nearly 40 percent of our products today are high value steels; we intend to take this figure up to 50 percent. Nearly one fifth of our products are exported and we are India’s largest exporter of coated products with a presence in over 100 countries.

Our strategic approach to growth has driven the Company’s forward and backward integration initiatives. Our steel plants in Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Maharashtra have a combined installed capacity of 14.3 million tonnes per annum. With the objective of touching 40 million tonnes in the next decade, we are expanding capacities at our existing sites and setting up plants in new locations. On the anvil, are two 10 million tonne greenfield facilities in West Bengal and Jharkhand.

At JSW, sustainability is the touchstone on which we have evolved our operational processes. Our systems for governance, manufacturing, supply chain management, human resource management, community engagement, mitigation of our carbon footprint and customer engagement, among others, are benchmarked against global best-in-class standards.

Our deeply held beliefs on doing business the sustainable way have led to strong partnerships among the communities where we operate. The success of our models for land acquisition and community engagement make them torchbearers for Indian industry. The canopy of our CSR (corporate social responsibility) initiative covers micro-level engagements as well as macro development programs that leave a measurable positive impact in every location where we have a presence.

History

The JSW Group’s foray into steel manufacturing began in 1982, when it set up the Jindal Iron and Steel Company with its first steel plant at Vasind near Mumbai. The next two decades saw significant expansion and several acquisitions, following the merger of Jindal Iron and Steel Co (JISCO) and Jindal Vijayanagar Steel Ltd (JVSL) in 2005. Today JSW Steel has plants in six locations in India — Vijayanagar in Karnataka, Salem in Tamil Nadu, and Tarapur, Vasind, Kalmeshwar and Dolvi in Maharashtra.

Our global operations include a plate and pipe mill in the US. In order to securitise resources, the company has acquired mining assets in Chile, USA and Mozambique.
