India-Based Steel Company Expands Baytown, Texas, Manufacturing Hub

03/27/2018
India-based JSW Steel Inc. agreed to consider an investment of $500 million in phases in developing its steel manufacturing infrastructure in Baytown, Texas.

Governor Abbott visited JSW Group Global Headquarters in Mumbai, India, and signed a Memorandum of Cooperation to develop and augment the steel industry in Texas. This investment will be used to expand the company's Plate & Pipe Mill unit.

As an incentive, Texas Enterprise Fund grant offer of $3.4 million has been extended to JSW Steel (USA) Inc, the Governor’s Office said.

“JSW’s motto is ‘Better Everyday,’ and that’s the same approach we take in Texas,” said Governor Greg Abbott. “The $500 million investment from JSW Steel to expand its operations in Texas shows what we can achieve when we work to be better every single day. Made in Texas is a powerful label, and I thank JSW for investing in our great state. We look forward to forging an even stronger partnership and continuing economic and job growth in the Lone Star State.”

“The Memorandum signed by Greg Abbott and JSW USA is part of our long term strategy to enhance our U.S. footprint," said Mr. Parth Jindal of JSW Group. "It reiterates our commitment to stay invested and grow in the U.S. market. It also provides JSW USA an opportunity to participate in USA’s infrastructure development and job creation priorities. Access to natural gas at extremely economical prices and the abundant availability of scrap steel in Texas make conditions very conducive for manufacturing through the Electric Arc Furnace route. JSW Steel (USA) Inc. wishes to create a world class fully integrated steel complex that will bring precision manufacturing of high quality steel plate and pipe to Texas, USA.”

JSW USA operates one of the widest steel plate & pipe mills in North America. Strategically located in Baytown, Texas the unit services the needs of the energy, petrochemicals, defense and other heavy equipment industries in USA who need high quality carbon plate.
