Bengaluru: TURBOSTEEL LPS TMT Bars — the first and only product in Karnataka to use the LPS (Low Phosphorus and Sulphur) technology for high grade steel bars — was launched here recently by cine actor-director Ramesh Aravind, who is also its Brand Ambassador.
TURBOSTEEL LPS TMT Bars is a product of Prakash Sponge Iron and Power Pvt. Ltd., established in the year 2007 and based in Chitradurga district.
TURBOSTEEL’s unique selling point is the LPS technology used in making steel, which reduces the Phosphorus and Sulphur content in steel to very low levels. This makes the TMT Bars stronger and reliable than other ordinary TMT bars available in the market. The primary focus is the State of Karnataka, based on the current production levels. The company is part of ERM Group, which has interests largely in the areas of Iron Ore Mining, Steel, and Power Generation.
The company has over 100 dealers across Karnataka and plans to introduce the new product in other States soon. Having provided direct and indirect employment to more than 600 people, the company is on a growth path to expand and add additional steel-making capacity.
