The modern tubes and pipes industry in India owes it origin to the grand vision Shri B C Jindal. The seed was sown with the incorporation of Jindal (India) Limited on the auspicious day of Makar Sankranti, 14 January 1952.

Phase I (Setting up of Black and Galvanized Pipe Unit)
The Company started its operation in the district of Howrah, West Bengal, India, by manufacturing pipe fittings, bends and sockets etc. Gradually, the Company established a unit for producing steel pipes and tubes with installed capacity of 5000 MTPA. During that period the main thrust was to utilize the country's natural resources by developing Agriculture, Mining and Iron and Steel Industries. Within a short span of time, the Company with its quality product captured a good share in the market and gradually its capacity was increased up to 160000 MTPA. It is one of the largest manufacturing units of ERW/HFW Black and Galvanized Steel Tubes from " to 10" confirming the National and International Standards and the units are accredited with ISO 9001-2008.

Phase II (Setting up of Cold Rolled Mill (C.R.Mill) and Continuous Galvanized Line [CGL] Unit)
In 1993, the Company diversified its activities by setting up a unit for manufacturing of narrow width Cold Rolled Strips with installed capacities of 10000 MTPA. In view of further expansion programmed in the same field, the company set up a state-of-the-art plant for manufacturing wider width Cold Rolled Strips and Galvanized Plain/Corrugated Sheets in 1998 at Jangalpur in the district of Howrah to meet the Domestic and International demand with the installed capacities was 40000 MTPA.

Gradually, their capacity was increased up to 350000 MTPA. Under the said expansion plan, the Company installed 2 nos of modern 6 HI C.R. Mill and 2 nos of Galvanizing line of higher standards. At present the Company's Cold Rolled and Galvanized Sheets are accepted and appreciated through out the world.

Phase III (Setting up of Line Pipe Unit)
Keeping expansion as our approach to continuous growth, the Company made further successful expansion in 2008 by setting up an another unit for manufacturing Line Pipe including a Coating Plant for pipe size up to 20" Outside Diameter with an initial production capacity of 240000 MTPA at Jangalpur, Howrah, West Bengal, India.

The installed Line Pipe plant was procured from JFE, Japan (Kawasaki) producing API grade pipe under running condition. The Company is licensed and authorized to use API 5L monogram for its pipe used in Hydro-Carbon Sector.
Phase IV (Setting up of Aluminium Foil Mill)
After a vast experience in the steel sector, the Company is enlarging its horizon by entering into Aluminium business as well. The Company has taken a step forward to put up 3 Aluminium Foil Rolling mills where bare Aluminium Foil is produced by rolling foil stock on two high speed, 4-Hi Foil Mills a Davy united sheet Mill, a Universal Spidem Foil Mill & a Finishing Achenbach Foil Mill with rolling width of 1100 mm. Both finishing mills are capable of rolling down to light (9-12 microns) & ultra-light gauges (7 microns).

The mills have been upgraded with new Siemens drives, automatic gauge control & upgraded hydraulics. The mills are well supported by ancillary equipment such as Rewinder, Doubler, Separators (Kampf & Schmutz), Annealing furnaces, Roll Grinder (Herkules) and a fully equipped quality assurance laboratory. The combination of mills makes the manufacturing system extremely versatile in terms of gauge mix, and Universal Foils aims to carve out a niche for itself in the light gauge foil market for House foil & packaging of Gutka, Food, Confectionery and Cigarette.
