IIPM Mumbai organizes Industrial visit to JSW

IIPM Mumbai had organised an industrial visit to JSW. Jindal Organization, set up in 1970 by the steel visionary Mr. O.P. Jindal, is the USD 8 Billion multi-faceted organisation and is one of the largest steel producers in India with 12 plants in India and 2 in USA. The organization is still expanding, integrating, amalgamating and growing. New directions, new objectives... but the Jindal motto remains the same- "We are the Future of Steel” The factory campus was beautiful as they had maintained it very well with lot of greenery & cleanliness abiding by their concern of being environment friendly. We were lead to the conference hall where we were shown the corporate film of JINDAL Steel. It was an 8 minute film informing us about the various business functioning under Jindal group. It also showed us the various CSR activities taken up by the group. We were also shown a film on O.P.Jindal which was very inspiring as he has grown Jindal Steel from an indigenous single-unit steel plant in Hisar, Haryana to the present multi-billion, multi-locational and multiproduct steel conglomerate. Students were then served tea & biscuits. The students were then divided into two groups & one person each from the company lead the groups to the factory visit. Both the cold rolling & hot rolling processes of the company were shown. In the Hot Rolling process, the iron sheets that comes from Jindal Factory at Vijayanagar is converted into steel sheets. In the Cold Rolling process, these iron sheets are then converted into iron rolls which are then dispatched to the various locations in & outside India. All the students found the processes very fascinating & had many queries. After the factory visit, we were taken to the company canteen for the lunch & then around 3.15 pm it was time to come back to college. Overall it was an exhilarating and inspiring visit.
