JSW Steel Ltd. (BSE: 500228, NSE: JSWSTEEL) is an Indian steel company owned by the JSW Group based in Mumbai, Maharashtra, India. JSW Steel, after merger of ISPAT steel, has become India's largest private sector steel company with an installed capacity of 14.3 MTPA.
As part of the US $18 billion O. P. Jindal Group, JSW Group has diversified interests in steel, energy, minerals and mining, infrastructure, cement and information technology. JSW's history can be traced back to 1982, when the Jindal Group acquired Piramal Steel Limited, which operated a mini steel mill at Tarapur in Maharashtra and renamed it as Jindal Iron and Steel Company (JISCO).
The Group set up its first steel plant in 1982 at Vasind near Mumbai. Soon after, it acquired Piramal Steel Ltd., which operated a mini steel mill at Tarapur in Maharashtra. The Jindals, who had wide experience in the steel industry, renamed it as Jindal Iron and Steel Co. Ltd. (JISCO). Jindal Vijayanagar Steel Ltd. (JVSL) was set up in 1994, with its plant located at Toranagallu in the Bellary-Hospet area of Karnataka, the heart of the high-grade iron ore belt and spread over 3,700 acres (15 km2) of land. It is just 340 kilometres (210 mi) from Bangalore, and is well connected with both the Goa and Chennai Port. In 2005, JISCO and JVSL merged to form JSW Steel Ltd.
JSW Steel has also formed a joint venture for setting up a steel plant in Georgia. The Company has also tied up with JFE Steel Corp, Japan for manufacturing the high grade automotive steel. The Company has also acquired mining assets in Republic of Chile, United States and Mozambique.
In 1994, Jindal Vijayanagar Steel (JVSL) was set up with its plant located at Toranagallu in the Bellary-Hospet area in the State of Karnataka, the heart of the high-grade iron ore belt and spread over 10,000 acres (40 km2) of land. over a decade. It also set up a plant at Salem with an annual capacity of 1 million tonne. It is on the threshold of a major expansion plan of adding 3.2 million tons per annum to its at Vijayanagar Plant to achieve 11 MTPA by 2011. It has established a strong presence in the global value-added steel segment with the acquisition of a steel mill in US and a Service Center in United Kingdom. JSW Steel has also formed a joint venture for setting up a steel plant in Georgia. The Company has further acquired iron ore mines in Chile and coal mines in USA & Mozambique.The current manufacturing capacity of company is 14.3 MTPA.  In Aug 2014, it acquired Welspun Maxsteel Ltd in a deal valued at around 1,000 Crores. 
India’s first 10 MTPA steel plant at single location, “the fastest growing steel plant in India”. The JSW Steel Vijayanagar plant is the first integrated steel plant to reach 10 MTPA capacity in a single location. It is the first in India to use the Corex technology for hot metal production.
The first hot strip mill at Vijayanagar was commissioned in 1997. Since then it has grown exponentially and now has an installed capacity to produce 10 MTPA of steel. Located at a remote village Toranagallu part of under developed North Karnataka in the Bellary-Hospet iron ore belt of Karnataka, the fully integrated steel plant, is well-connected with both the Goa and Chennai ports.
- Regarded as the world’s Corex showpiece; it was the first Greenfield project in India and among the first in the world to have successfully used this technology to produce “green steel”
- Houses India’s largest blast furnace and the widest hot strip mill
- The only plant in India with pair-cross technology and twin-stand reversible cold-rolling mill
- The highest productivity steel plant in India, producing 800-plus tonnes per person per annum
- Recognized for its ‘zero-effluent discharge’ status; it reuses more than 95 per cent of process waste
- Low carbon footprint as it recycles 96% of coke oven gas for power generation
- Uses sophisticated ambient air control infrastructure beyond and has reduced gas flaring to lower levels.
JSW acquired SISCOL in the year 2004, a sick unit at that time. Quick turnaround of the plant was achieved by expanding capacity from 0.3 Mt to 1 Mt and switching over to value added products.
Located advantageously at just about 350 kilometres (220 mi) from Chennai, the Salem plant has emerged as a global steel hub for automobiles and auto components.

The 3.3 MTPA integrated steel plant at Dolvi,Maharashtra majority stake acquired in 2010, is an inherent part of JSW Steel. Located on the west coast of India, the plant has a jetty with a capacity of 10 million tonnes per annum. This provides the unit with logistical advantages in importing raw materials and savings on freight cost. The unit is well connected through rail, road and sea and has given the JSW Steel a strategic presence in western India.
The Dolvi plant caters to several industries including automotive, projects and construction, machinery, LPG cylinder-makers, cold rollers, oil and gas sector and consumer durables.
- The Dolvi plant is the first in India to adopt a combination of Conarc technology for steelmaking and compact strip production (CSP) for producing hot rolled coils. * The main feature of CSP is thin slab casting.
- It can produce coils with thickness as low as 1.2 mm.
- HR coils produced at Dolvi are feed material for the two JSW Steel cold rolling and downstream facilities at Vasind and Tarapur.
The Vasind plant focuses on JSW- branded high-end steel products.It sources HR Steel coils from the Dolvi and Vijayanagar plants to manufacture value-added, branded steel products such as galvanised steel, plain and corrugated products as well as color-coated products.
