Asia’s first-ever Continuous Galvanized Rebar Manufacturing Facility launched
by Madhav KRG Group in association with International Zinc Association, Initiative Supported by Hindustan Zinc Limited
International Zinc Association (IZA), leading industry association dedicated exclusively to the interests of zinc in collaboration with Madhav KRG Group (one of the largest steel manufacturing company in North India) and Initiative supported by Hindustan Zinc Limited has launched Asia’s first-ever Continuous Galvanized Rebar (CGR) Manufacturing Facility today. The plant was virtually inaugurated by Shri Dharmendra Pradhan - Hon’ble Union Minister of Steel, Petroleum & natural Gas, Government of India (GoI) along with Sunil Duggal – Group CEO-Vedanta & CEO-Hindustan Zinc and Andrew Green, Executive Director, International Zinc Association, Global and other representatives.
The first-of-its-kind facility, situated near Gobindgarh in Punjab, will produce a new product, Continuously Galvanized Rebar (CGR). CGRs are value added rebars for higher life and low maintenance of infrastructure to provide significant cost savings compared to other corrosion resistant rebar systems. It offers on-site formability of the finished product, superior corrosion resistance in concrete at a price cheaper than other corrosion resistant rebar (Epoxy Coating & CRS rebar).
With an annual capacity of over 30,000 tonnes, the plant will manufacture ZNCOAT TEMPCORE TMT BARS under the brand name – JYOTI – a name that is now synonymous with excellence in steel manufacturing. This will be the first brand in Asia to apply CGR technology that will not only be superior but will also enhance life span of the rebars thereby reducing the overall maintenance cost.
