Talking about the company’s vision and initiatives, Senior Vice President & Unit Head, Hisar, Mr Vijay Kumar Bindlish, said, “Jindal Stainless takes pride in its ability to compete with global players and supplant their stainless steel solutions. Our company was founded with a vision to increase the consumption of domestic stainless steel in India as well as to realize import substitution. Over the past five decades, we have witnessed a sea change in the scenario from the times when there was 100% import dependence in our sector.

The stainless steel plates supplied by Jindal Stainless for this application constitute a unique and customized mixture of high chromium, nickel and silicon.
