Monnet Ispat & Energy was incorporated on February 1,1990. A Monnet group company, it is engaged in the business of sponge iron, steel ingot & billets and coal mining.
Monnet Ispat Ltd has an excellent manufacturing setup for sponge iron, steel billets & ingots. It also has a coal mining division and has now diversified into power generation for captive consumption.
The success story of Monnet Ispat Limited started with the commissioning of 1 lac tonne per annum (TPA) sponge iron plant set up at one-fourth the cost of similar plants. The indigenous technology used in setting up this plant enables Monnet to produce sponge iron of excellent Quality matching with the product of other plants set up using highly capital intensive foreign technology. With the addition of a second Rotary Kiln, Monnet has ensured augmentation of a capacity to 2.30 lac TPA. Additionally two rotary kilns each of 35000 TPA were comissioned in second half of 2003.
The plant is located in Raipur, Chattisgarh state, close to the source of its main raw materials -- iron ore and coal. In future to increase its competitive edge, Monnet has entered into mining of coal and iron ore from captive mines.
Monnet has come a long way in a very short span of time. It views human resource as the company's most valuable asset, much more valuable than the other factors of productions i.e. money, materials and machinery. A product can be duplicated, technology is available for a price, but human being are non-duplicable. In the 21st century, the human resource is going to be the competitive advantage of any company, be it in the manufacturing or the service sector. A customer driven company, we at Monnet, are as much concerned about our external customers as we are about our internal customers.
