Maharashtra Seamless Ltd (MSL) was incorporated on May 10, 1988. The company was conceived after noticing huge demand and supply gap in the seamless pipe market, which was met mostly through imports. This import substitute project was set up in 1991 at Nagothane (near Mumbai), Distt. Raigad (Maharashtra), to manufacture seamless pipes & tubes with the finest quality and wide product range using the world renowned CPE technology acquired through technical collaboration with Mannesmann Demag Huttentechnik Gmbh (MDH), Germany at a capital cost of Rs 69 crore. The project was appraised and financed by ICICI in participation with IDBI & IFCI and other banks. Mannesmann Demag is a world leader in steel and seamless pipe industry. Our state of the art plant is only the third of its kind in the world. The plant was commissioned in February 1992. The main plant and machinery was imported from USA based on MDH design.
