Our Core Values underpin our Strategic objectives

The four core values that underline the philosophy that governs the way UMCIL operates are:

RESILIENCE reflects our determination, commitment and perseverance in carrying out the IISP (Integrated Iron & Steel Plant) Project despite the odds in starting.

INNOVATION from the word go, UMCIL had to devise approaches to implement the current steel manufacturing facilities with limited resources at its disposal. In short, innovation inscribes UMCIL.

SUSTENANCE determines the UMCIL survival instinct to sustain its operation by manufacturing quality steel products at relatively affordable costs that are passed on to UMCIL  customers

RELIABILITY of steel products UMCIL manufactures underlines the company sense of responsibility for providing quality services and steel products when required and to the satisfaction of our stakeholders.
