GPT Steel Industries Limited has a 650,000 ton per annum tin plate and cold rolled (CR) steel plant in Gujarat, India. Its tin plate products are used for packaging (edible oil can and food) and its CR products target the high-end white goods and auto sectors.
Since 2012, we’ve only invested in Africa and South Asia. Investments outside these regions are from our pre-2012 portfolio.
- South Asia
We have seven priority sectors. However, we continue to invest outside these sectors, largely in the most challenging regions, as new investment supporting any sector helps to underpin the private sector, and create jobs and livelihoods for people.
