BDK Valves and Gurukrupa Group acquire 100% stake in Theis Precision Steel India, a leading specialty cold rolled steel strips manufacturer, expanding their market presence and driving value for customers.

BDK Valves ( manufacturer of Industrial valves providing flow control solutions to global customers) and Gurukrupa Group (realty developer in western India), announced the acquisition and controlling (100%) stake in Theis Precision Steel India Pvt. Ltd. (Theis Precision). This is the second acquisition of international companies by the promoter group to serve customers in India & across the world.

Theis Precision, formerly owned by Tata Steel Ltd., is a pioneer in specialty cold rolling of high/medium carbon steels in India. Today, it is a leading specialty cold rolled steel strips manufacturer in the country. It also is the only manufacturer of precision hot rolled solid steel profile sections, by a unique process, to satisfy the customers whose needs may be small in quantity but expectations are large.

Theis Precision caters to the need of various market segments such as automotive, textile machinery, cutting blades/saws, office machinery, general engineering, etc. It is specialised in catering to customized requirements such as desired surface finish, roughness, tempering, dimensional tolerances and packaging. In addition, the division has the capability of supplying hot rolled solid profiles, cold drawn profiles and profiles in ready-to-use form. Theis Precision’s latest addition in the product portfolio is Hardened & Tempered strips with a unique environment friendly Quench Media.  

Arjen Rijpkema, CEO, Mahler Asia BV in the Netherlands, said, “This sale of Theis Precision Steel to BDK and Gurukrupa brings it back to Indian family ownership after Theis Gmbh in Germany (which was owned by Mahler Asia) acquired it from Tata Steel in 2008. We are convinced that the new owners will contribute strongly to the further development of the company. They bring in-depth knowledge of the steel market, manufacturing and real estate experience which all can strengthen the business. They are geographically much closer to the plant enabling them to be more hands-on and directly involved as promotors than we could ever be from the long distance in Europe. Further I am certain that the new owners will professionally steer Theis Precision towards modernization and accelerated growth, which is fundamental to the business.”
