|GMR was originally incorporated on June 30th, 1986 in the name and style of Sree Sarada Ferro Alloys Ltd., to set up a plant for the manufacture of Ferro Chrome at an installed capacity of 6,000 TPA at Ravivalasa Village, Tekkali Mandal in Srikakulam District of Andhra Pradesh. The name of the Company was subsequently changed to GMR Vasavi Industries Ltd and a fresh Certificate of Incorporation was obtained on 1st February 1994.
As the project could not be implemented by the original promoters viz., Sri P V Lakshmana Rao, Sri K Srinivas Rao and associates, the present Directors comprising Shri G Mallikarjuna Rao and Shri S Suryanarayana Murthy had taken over the management in 1989 and implemented the said project.
GMR's existing Ferro Alloys operations registered a capacity utilisation of 71.12% in 1990-91 which subsequently increased to 89.73% in 1991-92 and around 88.20% in 1992-93. The company enhanced the manufacturing capacity from 6,000 TPA to 10926 TPA during 1993-94 nd achieved a capacity utilisation of 63.83% during 1993-94. The capacity utilisation has been lower due to shut down of the Plant for a period of about 2 months on account on implementation of the expansion project and time taken for stabilisation of production.
