Usha Martin Ranchi Facility is one of the world’s largest wire rope manufacturing facility under one roof. Spread across an area of more than 100 acres, Usha Martin Ranchi facility employs more than 1,700 people. This is the first facility established by Usha Martin since its inception in 1961.
Wire rods from Usha Martin’s steel plant at Jamshedpur provide a main and stable supply of input material for this plant. Wire rods are processed through modern pickling facilities, patenting & galvanising facilities, wire drawing facilities, and strand & rope making facilities to produce wires, strands, and wire ropes for multiple applications. In addition, this unit also has bright bar manufacturing facilities.
The wire ropes produced in this plant find application in Oil & Offshore, Mining, Crane, Elevator, Aerial Ropeway, and Bridges all over the world. The in-house rope designing and testing capabilities facilitate fast development of new types of ropes. It also has a modern Machinery division which produces machines for Usha Martin and other customers.
This plant is certified with ABS Manufacturing Certification, ABS Certificate for design assessment, API Certificate, DNV Certificate, ISO 9001 – 2008 (ANAB, UKAS), ISO 14001, Lloyd’s Certificate, NABL Certificate for Mechanical Test, and NABL Certificate for Chemical Test.
