Jagdamba TMT bars

KATHMANDU: In a landmark achievement Jagdamba Steels, Nepal’s largest steel company (Shanker), has become Nepal’s first company to successfully produce TMT bars through slit rolling technique.

Slit rolling technique enables the production of two or more bars from one billet, using state-of-the-art technology, as per a media release.

Shahil Agrawal, managing director of Shanker, informed that Jagdamba Steels has been relentless in its efforts to offer superior quality steel products to customers in Nepal. He further said that superior quality TMT bars through slit rolling can be achieved only from the use of primary grade billets. “It is pertinent to note that Jagdamba Steels is the largest importer of primary grade billets in Nepal from integrated steel producers like SAIL, JSPL and Electrosteel.”
