Sunflag Iron and Steel Co. Ltd. is a prestigious unit of the SUN FLAG GROUP.

It has set up a state-of-art integrated plant at Bhandara, India. The plant has a capacity to produce 360,000 tonnes per annum of high quality special steel using liquid pig iron and sponge iron as basic inputs. The plant comprises 2,62,000 tonnes per annum irect !eduction "lants, to produce sponge iron for capti#e consumption in the $teel %elting $hop. This shop comprises a &0'60 tonnes ultra high po(er )lectric *rc +urnace (ith )ccentric bottom arrangement, -adle refining furnace, Tan. egassing and Bloom'Billet double radius caster (ith *%-/ 0 )%$ and T type tundish.
