Asha Narang has been the driving force behind the growth and expansion of the company. She has been actively involved in the business since 1972 and is one of the first women entrepreneurs in India’s male-dominated steel industry. More than 40 years of experience in the industry has given her an incisive understanding of the operations of the company as well as great insight into the larger trends of the industry. She took over the reins of the company while her late husband and founder Satya Pal Narang was ailing. Asha Narang is a firm believer in collaborative leadership. The expansion phase of the company with a new plant in Chakan, Pune and an upcoming plant in Chennai has been made possible with the active participation of experienced professionals Sanjeev Verma and Vipin Verma, along with her son Sandeep Narang. Her vision is to seek greater growth to emerge as industry leaders in bright bar steel in India, as well as to diversify in partnership with small and medium auto-component manufacturing companies.
