The amalgamation of downstream activities will be facilitated by Tata Steel’s statewide marketing and sales network, in line with the company’s long-term strategy, to promote growth in value-added categories. Synergies will also be created by the amalgamations through improved facility use, centralised procurement, inventory optimization, and lower logistics costs, it was said.

Tata Steel has cut 116 related entities since 2019.Once completed, there will be more chances to cut corporate expenses and overhead, and each of the planned mergers will increase value for shareholders, according to the statement.
