About The Brand : MS Life Steel
MS Life Steel is one of India’s biggest steel exporters to other countries. Over the last 10 years, they have been at the forefront of science and cutting-edge technology. Since its establishment in 2005, MS Life has scaled up its operations to become an integrated steel plant. The company now has 3 massive factories stretching across Andhra Pradesh and Telangana with a production capacity of 1,50,000 MTPA and spreading across more than 850 acres. The stakeholders of MS Life considered innovation as the key to success and with persistence, they became the first to introduce Fe 500, Fe 550, and 600+ TMT bars in South India.
Operating with over 750+ Channel Partners including 100+ exclusive channel partners, the company has established goodwill for quality and innovation over the years and has therefore been associated with large-scale projects like the construction of Hyderabad Airport, Krishnapatnam Port, and Bangalore Airport that were also the projects of national importance.
The Prime Objective of MS Life is to stand out as the Leading & Most Prestigious TMT Brand in India.
