Jindal Stainless is embarking on a significant expansion with a planned investment of Rs 5,400 crore. The company’s strategic investment includes a joint venture (JV) for a stainless-steel melt shop in Indonesia, aimed at enhancing its annual production capacity by 1.2 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) with an investment of Rs 700 crore. This move will increase the company’s melting capacity by a substantial 40 percent to reach 4.2 MTPA.

In addition to the Indonesian venture, Jindal Stainless has allocated Rs 1,900 crore for expanding its downstream lines in Jajpur and Odisha. This investment is poised to bolster the company’s production capabilities and meet the growing demand for stainless steel in both domestic and international markets. Furthermore, the company has earmarked nearly Rs 1,450 crore for infrastructural upgrades, ensuring that its facilities remain at the forefront of technological advancement and operational efficiency.

Moreover, Jindal Stainless has signed an agreement to acquire a 54 percent equity stake in Chromeni Steels Private Limited (CSPL). This acquisition includes a 0.6 MTPA cold rolling mill located in Mundra, Gujarat, and is part of a structured indirect acquisition deal valued at Rs 45 crore. Additionally, Jindal Stainless will be taking over the existing debt of CSPL amounting to Rs 1,295 crore. These strategic acquisitions and investments are aimed at strengthening Jindal Stainless’ position in the market and enhancing its value proposition for customers.
