Iron Ore / Pellets
At the beginning of the year 2011 when all steel mills in India were busy in augmenting their production capacities to adjust to the demand for steel in the near future,
they could realize that though India has got a huge reserve
of the main steel making raw material i.e. Iron Ore, the
growth in mining of the mineral and thus availability of
iron ore to the steel mills) may not be in synchronization
with that of growing derived demand of the same from the
steel industry due to reasons beyond anybody's control.
In addition to this, scarcity of high grade Calibrated Lumpy
Ore (CLO) from the domestic miners coupled with inadequate
indigenous sintering/pelletisation facilities galvanized the
comparatively bigger steel mills to be more proactive in
securing their sourcing management for the major raw
material - Iron Ore. The result - Indian steel mills started
importing iron ore. This is where we could position
ourselves as a reliable supplier.
Assmang's mines of Iron Ore in South Africa produce very
high quality of iron ore and the freight rate from South
Africa to India is also very competitive as compared to that
from any other iron exporting county. Eventually, we turned
out to be a trusted supplier to the Indian Steel mills to
hedge against any uncertainty to their raw material
Today IPM Commodities Pvt. Ltd. is making regular sales of Iron ore, for the use in both blast furnaces and sponge iron plants, from ASSMANG mines in South Africa. Our network of potential customers includes all big and small steel companies in India having inadequate captive source of iron ore.
Assmang Iron Ore from South Africa is exported through the
Port of Saldanha Bay Bulk Terminal.
Iron Ore Pellets : Besides Calibrated Lumpy Iron Ore from
our principal Assmang, we do have very good alliances with
iron ore pellet manufacturers across the globe to suit the
particular quality and quantity requirement of a few Indian
customers whose production processes entails for raw
material with strictly restricted extraneous matters and
very high quality. IPMC is dedicated to cater to this niche
market segment. We, due to our global presence and vast
network of suppliers can supply pellets from countries like
Canada, Ukraine etc.
