Hyderabad: Hyderabad-based PSU Mishra Dhatu Nigam Limited (MIDHANI), which specialises in metals and metal alloy manufacturing, has decided to upscale its production for the aerospace industry.

The biennial airshow is scheduled to be held in Bengaluru from February 13 to 17.

“MIDHANI is an aerospace-certified organisation, This is a good opportunity to meet the requirements of the industry. The future is to increase the base in aerospace, space, defence as well as energy and as part of this, a three-meter wide plate mill, eight-tonne vacuum induction melting, skull melting, cold roll products and other facilities will be produced from here,” Jha said.

At present, the manufacturing facilities at the MIDHANI plant in Hyderabad include primary and secondary melting furnaces, while its armoured unit at Rohtak, Haryana produces high-end armour products like vehicle armouring, bulletproof morcha, bullet resistant jackets. Now, it is planning to spread its wings in Uttar Pradesh and Tamil Nadu.
