Shyam Steel to invest 250 cr to ramp up production

11 October 2021

Shyam Steel Industries Ltd is looking to invest close to Rs 250 crore for ramping up production capacity by nearly 50-60% over the next two years. The company can produce around one million tonne of crude steel and around six lakh tonne of TMT annually across its five manufacturing units, all located in West Bengal.

According to Suket Beriwal, Director, Shyam Steel, the company is yet to firm up plans on which units will be ramped up and by how much. It will depend on the demand situation. It is also evaluating the possibilities of setting up a greenfield plant in the eastern region.

The company manufactures and supplies TMT rebar, billets, and sponge iron.

The company, which has an established presence in the eastern and north-eastern regions, is looking to expand its retail footprint in central, south, and west India. It has a network of over 6,000 distributors, dealers, and retailers in the markets it currently operates in.

The company has developed a highly efficient network of third-party logistics service providers to take its products to every corner of the country. It also plans to appoint a team of around 500 distributors, dealers, and retailers across each of these States to ensure easy accessibility of its brand to home builders at reasonable prices.

Retail accounts for around 50% of the company’s total turnover of Rs 3,000 crore. The remaining (50%) comes from B2B.
