About our Ferro Chem Division
Established in 1980, the Ferro Chem Division of Essel Mining & Industries Limited (EMIL) is located at Vapi in Gujarat, a major industrial hub. With a manufacturing capacity of 3,500 MTPA of different types of ferro alloys, the company is the largest producer of high quality noble ferro alloys in the country and commands over 40 per cent of the market in India.
The Ferro Chem division produces Ferro Molybdenum, Ferro Vanadium and Ferro Titanium. Noble ferro alloys are used in the manufacture of alloy steels, high-speed steels and other special grade steels, infusing anti-abrasive and anti-corrosive properties to steel. Additionally, these products find application in the manufacture of castings and electrodes and also act as a catalyst in the fertiliser industry.
The Ferro Chem division also produces ferro-alloy powders and unfused V2O5. The division has developed Ferro Titanium (35–40 per cent grade) through an internal R&D initiative and commercialised a unique concept of using sludge (an industrial waste) to produce a range of vanadium-based products.
A constant endeavour of the Ferro Chem division is to develop high-value products for its customers (with a sharp focus on R&D), a strong distribution network and a dedicated team for customer service. Focus on R&D has made the division attain global position and global benchmarks in various operational parameters.
It is the first company in the field of Noble ferro alloys to be awarded the Rajiv Gandhi National Quality Award commendation in 1998, 1999 and 2003 under large scale category.
