Manufacturing Overview

Widest cold rolling mill for automotive steel in India.

The Vijayanagar plant of JSW Steel is the first integrated steel plant to reach 10 MTPA capacity at a single location in India. It is the first plant in India to use the Corex technology for hot metal production.

The first Hot Strip Mill at Vijayanagar was commissioned in 1997. Since then it has grown exponentially and now has an installed capacity to produce 10 MTPA of steel. Located 380 kms from Bangalore in Toranagallu, North Karnataka - a part of the Bellary-Hospet iron ore belt - it is a fully integrated steel plant well-connected with both Goa and Chennai ports.
