Hyderabad: Mishra Dhatu Nigam Limited (MIDHANI), the manufacturer of custom-made special metals & alloys under the ministry of Defence, conducted its 8th Customer Meet, in the city.

Inaugurating the 8th customer meet, Vice-Admiral D.S.P. Verma, Director-General of Advance Technology Vessels Programme (ATVP), Indian Navy, said that Midhani should increase its focus on the special steel requirements of power sector. He said that Midhani's expansion and modernisation have been scientifically taken up based on customer feedback.

Midhani now invests about 50 per cent of its reserves on R&D to eventually supply final products rather than mill forms. Midhani, a technology-driven enterprise, is now graduating to become a market-driven company.

"We call our customers as partners since the partnership is not just in terms of monetary returns but our partnership is one of technology partnership, strategic partnership and financial partnership," said M. Narayana Rao, Chairman and Managing Director, Midhani.

The one-day customer meet titled “Strengthening Partnership” has been attended by over 75 delegates representing various sectors of Indian strategic industry including space, defence and nuclear as well as industries such as BHEL, NPCIL etc.

Midhani's special materials and products have been meeting the stringent demands of the strategic sector for the past decade.

In June this year, MM Pallam Raju, the Minister of State for Defence, laid the Foundation Stone for an Aerospace quality Fasteners Plant at Midhani. The plant is to be run exclusively by women on commercial scale. There is an incredible market potential for fasteners of various special alloys consequent to the growth of aerospace industry and indigenization of these products will certainly lead to considerable foreign exchange saving for the country said M Narayana Rao.

Midhani has already demonstrated its capability in manufacturing  Fasteners of Superalloys, Titanium alloys and special steels in large quantities and is supplying the same to Navy, ISRO and DRDO.  The fasteners include Bolts, Rivets, Washers, Inserts & Studs, Screws, Nuts, Pins etc catering to all the combinations of fastener configuration and geometries.
