About JSW Steel Ltd.
JSW Steel Ltd. is one of the leading Indian producers of carbon and alloy steel products and one of the 20 largest steelmakers in the world. It is part of the JSW Group, one of the fastest growing companies in India with a global footprint covering over 140 countries across core economic sectors including steel, energy, infrastructure, and cement. The group has been part of major projects that have played a key role in India’s growth.
JSW Steel is on course to become the country's largest steel producer on the back of recent expansions and acquisitions, with capacity set to reach 27 million tons during 2021. The company recently announced its long-term target is to expand this capacity to 45 million tpa well before 2030. This growth is remarkable considering that JSW Steel was established less than 40 years ago, when the Jindal Group acquired a small steel mill in Maharashtra in 1982. Soon after, the group set up its first steel plant near Mumbai. Jindal Vijayanagar Steel was established in 1994, with its plant located at Toranagallu in the Ballari-Hospet area, heart of the high-grade iron ore belt in India. The company has operated under the name JSW Steel since 2005.
