Since the revival of the Muljibhai Madhvani & Company Limited Steel Division, it has grown steadily into a market player to be reckoned with. As one of the most advanced steel plants in the country, it has a capacity of 40,000 tonnes of hot rolled products per year.
The company has achieved some major strategic milestones in ensuring quality and continuity. The ISO-certified company also had its quality control laboratory certified by the Uganda National Bureau of Standards.
Madhvani Steel recently introduced TMX (QST) German patented Technology. TMX (QST) rebar is a high-quality steel bar with a definite advantage over TMT Bars with superior properties such as high elongation, weldability, ductility and Tensile Strength. TMX bars are new generation bars which are of high strength steel and are proven to be more heat and earthquake resistant. This will definitely add strength and safety to any structure.
The company is also investing $500,000 in replacing the reheating furnace, which will reduce HFO consumptions and reduces conversion costs. These developments ensure unmatched quality production that places Madhvani Steel in a strong position in the market.
The plant only uses imported billets in the production process, which further ensures a quality and reliable product.
Madhvani Steel Division has also posted record sales volumes in 2022, supplying metal bars to both government and high-value private projects alike. For instance, Roko Construction, Uganda National Roads Authority projects, the Karuma hydro-power project, the Kampala fly-over construction and the Kampala Marriot Hotel.
Madhvani Steel is also proudly part of the Kampala-Entebbe Expressway – under clients China Communications Construction Company, and the new Nile Bridge – for clients Zenitaka-Hyundai.
Currently, Madhvani Steel plant manufactures 8mm, 10mm, 12mm, 16mm, 25mm and 32mm steel bars for construction. The company is investing in new colour roll forming profiles by next year, while revamping the SMS and wire rod mill are in the pipeline.
