Viraj Profiles Limited rightly called the silent giant, commenced operations with less than 150 employees and a production capacity of 1000 MT in 1992. With what started as a small induction furnace to manufacture utensil grade steel for domestic markets, Viraj Profiles Limited has now transformed into one of the world’s largest stainless steel manufacturers with a capacity of 528,000 tonnes per annum and a human resource strength of more than 9,000 employees and with an annual turnover of over US $ 1.5 billion. The company has integrated production facilities and is set to increase its total melting capacity in the coming years. Today, Viraj has customer base in 6 continents and has made its presence felt in steel, defence, construction & structural buildings, power, petrochemical and marine industries.
Viraj Profiles was incorporated in 1990 and its first melt shop was commissioned in 1991, but the company’s journey truly began in 1992, when its small induction furnace commenced the manufacturing of steel in the industrial area of Tarapur, near Mumbai. Initially the company started manufacturing utensil-grade steel for the domestic market but it always kept its eye on the international market which was growing significantly. To make this a possibility, in 1995 Viraj started increasing its production capacity, diversifying its product grades and product range, and enhancing its production processes. In that year, the company began manufacturing stainless steel and established divisions for bright bars and for flanges and forging, and started exporting bright bars. Almost every year since then Viraj has added a new type of product to its range, including sections and profiles, fasteners, wire and wire rods.
The diverse range of grades, sizes, categories and lengths of products available under one roof, combined with the engineering quality, makes us a leader and trusted brand in the international market. Over the last 20 years we have achieved over 90 product certifications and approvals in the petrochemical, food and beverage, construction, pharmaceutical, defence and marine industries. In April 2010 Viraj Profiles Limited was announced as the winner of the SEEPZ Highest Exporter Award, which was received by Mrs. Renu Kochhar, Managing Director.
