 JSW Steel to deploy Made in India JSW Magsure to reduce India’s reliance on steel imports

JSW Steel, India’s leading steel company and the flagship business of US$ 24 billion JSW Group, is enhancing its product mix to reduce India’s reliance on coated steel imports with an indigenous Made in India, JSW Magsure.

This makes JSW Steel the first and only Indian steel company to manufacture and market a Zinc-Magnesium-Aluminium alloy-coated steel product in the domestic market. JSW Steel has patented the unique chemical composition of JSW Magsure.

This special steel is supplied by a handful of global majors using patented technologies. India’s heavy reliance on imports of Zinc-Magnesium-Aluminium alloy-coated steel creates significant supply limitations. JSW Steel’s JSW Magsure aims to address the supply limitation by offering an indigenous Made in India product with the shortest delivery timelines.
