MANISHRI was started in the year 1972 by our founder Late Sri B.C.Mohanty, who was one of the pioneer in the field of Refractories. He started his career in OCL, during the construction period of the plant as a technical apprentice. During that period he gained tremendous insights into refractory technology by working alongside refractory consultants from Europe.
After spending 10 years in production department of OCL he joined ORIND Plant as Production Head and brought the plant to its technical peak.
After working for 10 years, there he then came forward to put his vision into reality by starting a refractory plant of his own - MANISHRI.
His vision was to build a plant in such a location that it will be close to major Steel Plants like Rourkela Steel Plant, Durgapur Steel Plant, Bhilai Steel Plant, Visakhapatnam Steel Plant as well as NALCO, HZL, IMFA etc. which were major refractory consumers. Also the plant should be close to 3 major Ports Vijag, Kolkata & Paradeep with an eye for International Market. Moreover, the plant was to be situated in a close proximity to the Talabasta Mines of Orissa which has the best deposits of Fireclay in the Country.
With his farsightedness and vision MANISHRI was born and has progressed from a Small Scale Industry to one of the leading players in refractory market.
Manishri entered in to EPC/Turnkey project contracting business in the year 2011 and bagged the prestigious contract for setting up of 1 X 300 TPD Lime/Dolomite Calcination Plant complex at DSP, SAIL Durgapur along with it's consortium partner Qualical SRL, Italy. The project spanned over three years and was successfully commissioned in 2015 with a total project value of INR 50 Crores. Some of the main components of the project are mentioned below:
Qualical was responsible for technology, automation and burning system where as the bulk of this job like Mechanical, Civil, Electrical, Refractory, Material handling and utilities were executed by Manishri.
Besides employing a full scale project management and engineering team of all disciplines at site, the entire basic and detail engineering was done by Manishri team of engineers and were approved by Mecon. In this endeavor Manishri's group company Esskay M/c was involved in the engineering section in big way.
