Enriching Lives

Enriching Lives

In an area that was suffering from the shortage of one of the most basic needs of life, we worked to alleviate the pain of the people, however much we could. Stovekraft saw to the drilling of a bore-well for the local village in order to meet the water-needs of the villagers. The water is now supplied by the local governing authorities through their domestic water-supply scheme. The lives of over 200 families have been enriched by the water of this well and it gives us immense pleasure to have been able to do our share for the community. 

Improving Infrastructure & Income

Improving Infrastructure & Income

We strongly believe in forming mutually beneficial, symbiotic relationships, wherever possible. Towards that end, Stovekraft built a concrete pathway on the eroded and washed out rain-water drain in front of the factory. The pathway stretches over a length of 500 feet. The construction of the pathway has enabled our factory employees to park their vehicles at ease. As a direct result of this, local farmers can sell fresh produce directly to the thousands of factory workers as they leave the factory premises at the end of their shifts. 

Uplifting Primary Education

Uplifting Primary Education

Seeing to the proper development of the future generation of our country remains to be one of the primary concerns of our CSR policy. Stovekraft sponsored the complete repair and renovation of numerous portions of a local, government primary school. We also undertook the repair and construction of hygiene facilities for young boys and girls. So that the students do not need to sit on the ground at school, we also provided desks and benches for them. Since 2010 we have started the annual ritual of providing 60 students with books and stationary for the entire year.

The manufacturing processes at Stovekraft are very stringent and each one of them is headed by a core team of experienced professionals. We largely employ automated and semi-automated processes, some of which are listed below.

  • ‘Automatic Polishing’ of pressure cookers to ensure uniform quality and finish.
  • ‘Thermoset Injection Molding’ for manufacturing high-temperature-resistant handles for cookware.
  • ‘Hard-Anodizing’ for producing scratch-resistant and reliable cookware.
  • ‘Deep Draw’ to provide luster and smooth finish while manufacturing draw jars for mixer grinders.
  • 'Rolling Process' to manufacture the stainless steel bodies of glass tops and LPG stoves.
  • 'Aluminium Die-Casting' to manufacture heavy cookers.

The latest inclusion to our infrastructure is the completely integrated Roller Coating non-stick manufacturing facility. It is fully equipped to customize products according to the needs of our international clients, including design, coating, thickness and material processing.

Here, at StoveKraft, we employ state-of-the-art technology to create products that are aesthetically beautiful, safe to use and long lasting. We use the latest forging technology for the fine forming and forging of cookware out of pre-coated discs, which makes them efficient and beautiful. Our coining & forging process is equipped with a 5000 ton coining press. Forged cookwares come with the ability to have different body-thicknesses. The base ensures an even distribution of heat and the body ensures longevity and durability.

Besides our in-house molding and in-house hard-anodizing plants, we have set up our own technologies to produce soft feel handles, to manufacture forging discs for cookware and to print designs on cookwares.
