Asian Colour Coated Ispat that was admitted for insolvency last year in July, has a total 1 million tonne of galvanising and colour coated capacities in two locations in Maharashtra and Haryana.
The asset will be a good fit for JSW Steel that is almost tripling its colour coated steel capacity to 2 million tonnes per annum over a year and a half as part of its strategy to augment capacities of value added steel products that are seeing a growth in demand and also earn the manufacturers higher margins. The company had initially offered Rs 1,200 crore for the asset but upped its bid by more than 25% in May.
