The “Continuous Galvanized Rebar” Production Facility established in Mandi Gobindgarh, Punjab was inaugurated by the Minister of Steel & Petroleum and Natural Gas, Shri Dharmendra Pradhan on 29 June 2020.

Key Points:

  • The “Continuous Galvanized Rebar” Production Facility is the first of its kind in the Asian continent.
  • The “Continuous Galvanized Rebar” are rebars with value addition and have a higher life span and require low maintenance of infrastructure and therefore provide significant cost-cutting in comparison to other corrosion-resistant rebars.
  • The facility has been launched with the collaboration of International Zinc Association (IZA), with Madhav KRG Group and is supported by the Hindustan Zinc Limited.
  • The production facility has an annual capacity of more than 30,000 tonnes and will manufacture ZNCOAT TEMPCORE TMT BARS under the brand name - JYOTI.
  • With the focus on the large scale expansion in the infrastructure sectors, the demand for galvanized steel will rise dramatically and will drive the steel intensity.
  • The construction industry will receive the much-needed support and supply of galvanized rebar from the production facility.
  • India will slowly focus on the demand of the world in addition to the domestic demand and is a step in the right direction of a Self Reliant India.
