Welcome to TATA Metaliks

Our Legacy

Capacity building

Starting in 1990 with Pig Iron as our only product in West Bengal, our story has always been about growth – from PI to Ductile Iron pipes and onwards. TML stands behind our expertise and experience especially against the backdrop of a financial crisis, shutting down a plant, and technological revolutions.
Today, Tata Metaliks is one of the biggest PI (foundry garde) & DIP manufacturers globally. We achieved this by focusing on creating sustainable value by providing industry-leading products and solutions to our customers. We strive to improve the future for our customers, shareholders, and communities by becoming one of the world’s most efficient and innovative companies.


The company was incorporated on 10th October, 1990 as Tata Korf Metal West Bengal, and soon the construction of the plant commenced at Kharagpur. Tata Korf Metal West Bengal was renamed as Tata Metaliks on 16th January 1992.


The plant was commissioned in 1994 with a production capacity of 0.9 LTPA of hot metal per year


In 2005, a second mini blast furnace (MBF) was commissioned, which increased the installed capacity to 3.45 LTPA.
