Our History

V.K. Industrial Corporation Limited was established in the year 1985 under the guidance of Mr. Kakubhai Mehta and his son cum partner, Mr. Viren Mehta. The two entrepreneurs started the company with the prime goal to meet the need of developing Indian economy: high quality steel at competitive prices.

In the 20th century, India was starting to grow rapidly and was gearing to compete globally; however, it did not have the required infrastructure to support the same. Mr. Viren Mehta, set up the company with the vision to meet these infrastructural needs of the rapidly growing India.  During the early years, the company only acted as a stockiest and dealer of special quality steel plates. Gradually, the VKICL’s management realized the enormous potential in the steel industry as the demand for steel was rising; however its supply was limited. To fulfil the growing steel demand of its customers in terms of volume, variety, quality and prices , VKICL started to import steel from all over the world.

Since its inception in 1985, the company has accomplished a lot in terms of its structure, size, and presence. Through a successful expansion strategy, VKICL has rapidly grown to become a closely held public limited company which has operations in three major port states- Maharashtra, Gujarat, and Chennai. Over three decades VKICL has successfully mastered the art of selling variety of steel products including Boiler Quality Plates, High Tensile Steel Plates, Structural Steel Plates, Wire Rods, Hot Rolled and Cold Rolled Coils and Chequered Plates.

Today, VKICL is India’s leading steel importer and stockiest conglomerate of special quality steel plates. Guided by the philosophy to supply best quality and variety of steel plates at competitive prices, VKICL is the leading integrated steel products supplier in all major markets including automotive, construction, infrastructure, shipbuilding, renewable energy and power.

VKICL’s strong corporate governance, ethical practices, focused employees and transparent business has all contributed to burgeoning of the company. During this journey, VKICL management has not only invested in building a huge inventory of steel, but also developed world-class best business practices and processes, offering its customers challenging project solutions, in turn winning the trust of its customers, vendors and agency partner, truly creating a benchmark in the steel industry. Even today, VKICL is committed to add more milestones to its long, endeavoring and successful journey.
