Bhubaneswar, August 5: Jindal Steel and Power Ltd. (JSPL), India’s leading steel and power company today announced the launch of a new retail brand, Jindal Panther™ in India. The brand is inspired by the Black Panther, a powerful feline synonymous with strength, agility and rebirth.
The first product to be launched under Jindal Panther™ is the Jindal Panther™ TMT Rebars, signifying the company’s foray into the retail product segment. The new generation premium quality ribbed Thermo Mechanically Treated (TMT) Rebars have a higher degree of strength, ductility and malleability, yielding the best results for all constructions needs.
Speaking at the launch of Jindal Panther, Ravi Uppal, MD and CEO, Jindal Steel and Power said, “At JSPL, our brand values are rooted in excellence, innovation and commitment to world class quality as envisioned by our founder OP Jindal. Our entry into retail is spurred with an aim to provide top quality reinforced bars to the housing segment. Jindal Panther™ TMT Rebars have been inspired by the strength and agility of the powerful Panther and promises to empower every Indian home by offering strength and purity to its construction. With this, we aspire to serve the emerging needs of infrastructure in the country.”
Jindal Panther™ TMT Rebars have been made with superior quality steel billets with a restricted level of Sulphur and Phosphorus, a maximum of 0.055% to comply with the latest BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) specifications. The manufacturing process uses the world’s most advanced Morgan Rolling Mill deploying High Yield Quenching & Self Tempering (HYQST) TMT technology, making it more strong and ductile.
Jindal Panther™ TMT Rebars aims to break the acronym mould of the category, and engage with the end customers to cater to varying housing and construction needs. The high strength, bendability and weldability factors allow the TMT rebar to withstand shock loading and cyclic loading conditions making it an ideal choice for buildings in high seismic zones. Made with consistent mechanical and chemical properties for both residential as well as industrial projects, the TMT Rebars have been made available across retails outlets, integrated with a channel network of 40 distributors and over 1000 dealers.
The TMT rebar is being produced at the TMT Rebar mill at Patratu, Jharkhand with a production capacity of 1.0 MTPA, using the leading Siemens rebar production technology from USA.
