About The Organisation

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. Post economic liberalization, in 1992 when the Government of India adopted economic reforms, Jindal group was amongst the first to grab the opportunity. It was in 1994, the Government of Karnataka approached the OP Jindal Group to set up an integrated steel plant at Tornagallu in the Bellary– Hospet area of Karnataka, the heart of the high grade iron ore belt. It is just 340 kms from Bangalore, and well connected to Goa and Chennai Ports. JSW succeeded in commencing Vijayanagar steel plant in a record 33 months. Selecting the COREX technology, 1st in India along with the traditional blast furnace route provided innovative solutions to power and water scarcity. The Company achieved an important milestone by commissioning the Hot Strip Mill manufacturing Hot rolled Coil by backward integration in 1997. 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.
