There are a number of commercial steel cutting companies in India.
Most of them are small businesses that specialize in steel pipes.
But there are also a few large, international companies that are pushing their commercial steel cutters to the national level.
They want to offer cutting services to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) who do not have a local cutting shop.
The Tata Steel Cutting Company in Karnataka has been one of these companies.
The company was founded in 2012 and is located in Kurnool in the eastern Indian state of Karnataka.
Tata Steel cutting company founder and CEO, Shripad Kumar, has been working with local SMEs for years.
“My business model is to offer high quality cutting services,” Kumar told Quartz.
“We offer quality cuts to SME’s for a reasonable price.”
A commercial steel cutter is a machine that can cut steel at high speeds.
The cutting blade can be made of stainless steel or a composite material.
Kumar says the cutting process is very similar to cutting glass.
It’s a bit like cutting a knife.
He said that he has cut steel in various sizes and shapes for over a decade.
A commercial cutter costs around Rs 50,000, he said.
The blades are not as long as those used in the commercial industry, but they’re lighter and they are more flexible.
“They are cheaper than a commercial knife,” Kumar said.
According to Kumar, there are about 500 commercial steelcutters in Karnabad.
“But we have been expanding our service,” he added.
“There is no need to go to a large commercial cutlery to do our work.”
This year, the Tata Steelcutting Company has been expanding its service to the entire state of Kerala.
Kumar said that they are also expanding to other states in the country.
He told Quartz that they were looking to expand further to other regions in the world as well.
A local steelcutter is not an uncommon sight in the area.
The area around Tata Steelcutters office is full of SME houses and businesses.
“A local steel cutter can be seen from anywhere,” Kumar noted.
“I have cut steel here in Kavli for more than 15 years.”
