About Agha Steel
Agha Steel Industries Limited (ASIL) is a fully automatic Steel Manufacturing Company in Pakistan with an annual melting capacity of 450,000 MT and rolling capacity of 250,000 Metric Ton per annum. ASIL represents one of the largest private sector investments in the steel industry of Pakistan. ASIL is the fastest growing steel manufacturer in Pakistan, which prides in continuously improving the quality of its products. ASIL is Pakistan’s first completely automatic Rolling Mill with 17 Stand – 2 Strand, having a capacity to make Re-Bars ranging from 9.5mm to 40mm at the maximum speed of 18 m/s, thus leading Pakistan into a new era of steel-making.
ASIL’s state of the Art 45 Tons Furnace with Tap to Tap Time is 48 Minutes. Addition of most modern technologies such as Catfish (CLARIUS GARIEPINUS), EBT Eye, EBT Sand the furnace performance has enhanced to an extent where we have been able to increase our capacity 2.5 times our previously installed furnace.
The Company is a pioneer in introducing the TMT technology in the country, in conjunction with a fully automated rolling mill. This has enabled the Company to produce
high-quality rebars with accuracy in terms of length and grade to meet the customer needs. Pioneer of ASTM A706 Deformed Grade 60-Pakistan’s first Earthquake Resistance rebar.
Electric Arc Furnace
State of the Art 45 Tons Furnace with a Tap to Tap Time of 48 Minutes. The addition of most modern technologies such as Catfish , EBT Eye, and EBT Sand the furnace performance has been enhanced to increase the capacity by 2.5 times.
Air Treatment Plant
A complete system catering 500 kg of dust per heat, the equipment installed in Fumes Treatment Plant (FTP) are 60 % locally manufactured thus increasing the capability of local vendors and enhancing the environmental profile that can be exemplary for other steel manufacturing industries.
Pakistan’s only Integrated Scrap Feeding System which is capable to work for DRI/HBI as well and can feed the furnace at a rate of 1.25 tons per minute.
How We Started
ASIL was formed in 2010 as an AOP (Association of Persons). In November 2013, a private limited company was incorporated and converted into a public limited company in April 2015. In November 2020, the Company was listed on Pakistan Stock Exchange.
The groundbreaking of the manufacturing plant site was started in 2010, while the plant started its commercial operations in 2012. The manufacturing plant is spread over an area of about 10 acres, with a total occupied area of 48,400 square yards. In June 2017, Company acquired a further 17 Acres of land, adjacent to its existing facility. The combined area for this futuristic manufacturing facility now stands at 130,680 square yards.
Since the start of the commercial operations, the Company has been continuously witnessing steady growth in all major areas such as the production capacity, the customer base and the revenue stream. This healthy growth trend has been the result of the Company’s continuous product and market development efforts, which has enabled the Company to attain a diversified clientele-both from the Public and the Private sectors. It is because of this reason, that today, Agha Steel has become a well-known steel manufacturer in Pakistan.
ASIL has been established by Agha Group, which has a vast experience in the steel industry. The thriving entrepreneurial background of the sponsor’s family is evident from various successful steel industry-related ventures launched by them over a period of 60 years. The sponsors’ vast experience in the steel industry, is characterized by being the first movers in the industry, such as establishing the first ever green ship-recycling yard in Pakistan, as well as setting up the first integrated steel manufacturing facility (ASIL) using EBT Electric Arc Furnace (EAF) for the manufacturing of Steel Billets in Pakistan.

Why Agha Steel?
The Art Of Asal Steel-Making
Agha Steel is the only company in Pakistan possessing an Electric Arc Furnace with Eccentric Bottom Tapping Technology, a globally recognized steel-making process. Built with inherent high efficiency, allowing us to solely produce a variety of grades of steel that is not only superior but unmatched in quality, strength, resilience and bonding capabilities.
Compared to other companies in Pakistan, who have an outdated and globally banned induction furnace (steel melting technology), the Electric Arc Furnace uses multiple types of scrap (shredded, DRI, LMS, HMS, HBI, pig iron etc.) to produce 100% refined Steel. The main advantage of DRI usage is to dilute the Cu & Sn; which is not possible with an induction furnace.
EAF technology also has the provision to eliminate unwanted content (through Decarbonization & Dephosphorization) in steel that makes it weaker with the passage of time; producing 100% Refined Steel Rebars that withstands the test of time.
In addition, Tramp & Trace elements are better controlled in an Electric Arc Furnace, also the batch/heat capacity of Agha Steel is highest among its competitors that is 45-50 MT/batch.
An Exclusive Ladle Refining Furnace Technology
At Agha Steel Electric Arc Furnace is coupled with Ladle Refining Furnace (LRF), which initiates a secondary metallurgy process to remove the sulphur from molten steel. LRF also helps to remove non-metallic inclusion such as oxides, sulfides, nitrides etc. and precisely controls the chemistry of the molten metal through an allowing system, enabling the steel to reach the perfect oxygen ppm according to required grades and eliminates silicon as well; ensuring every Steel Bar produced by Agha Steel is 100% ASAL, every time.
