About Usha Martin Ltd

Usha Martin started in 1961 in Ranchi, Jharkhand as a wire rope manufacturing company, today the Usha Martin Group is a $1 billion conglomerate with a global presence.  The group has set new standards in the manufacture of wire rods, bright bars, steel wires, speciality wires, wire ropes, strand, conveyor cord, wire drawing and cable machinery.  With continuous growth in both the domestic and international markets, Usha Martin, the Group’s flagship company has emerged as India’s largest and the world’s second largest steel wire rope manufacturer. 

In 1979, the company set up a steel plant with wire rod rolling mill at Jamshedpur, to benefit from business integration. This ensured a steady supply of steel for the manufacture of value added products. Today, the Jamshedpur unit has a truly integrated speciality steel manufacturing facility of 700,000 MT per annum.  Out of which, about 35% is consumed internally by its plant in Ranchi, Hoshiarpur & Bangkok, producing steel wire, steel strand, steel cords, bright bar and steel wire ropes.  All its manufacturing facilities are ISO 9000 certified and the steel plant was India’s first to receive the TPM Excellence Award from JIPM, Japan.   

With local success come global aspirations. Currently, the company has overseas manufacturing operations in Thailand, UK and Dubai. Besides a vast network of distribution centres and marketing offices spread across the globe to support an ever growing worldwide customer base. The company exports over 60% of the wire rope output and about 20% of the total wire rods produced.

Usha Martin’s future plans are focused on its operation in Jharkhand - a state rich in mineral resources. Future priorities include product mix enrichment, cost reduction and infrastructural improvements. Already flourishing in its recent foray into mining operations, the company is planning to invest in its iron ore and coal mines, sinter plant, pellet plant, power plants, while also enhancing its steel making and value added products capacity with an investment of Rs 2,100 crore.
