Usha Martin has always been one of those organizations that have contributed to the nation's development over the last six decades. This has helped to build the nation's infrastructure with our value-added products and solutions. The company offers high-performance wire ropes, PE-coated bonded/ un-bonded LRPC strands, and prestressing solutions, backed up by the expert installation team for pre-tensioning and post-tensioning jobs for infrastructural projects. Usha Martin is the only company in India and probably in the world to provide one-stop prestressing solutions. We are proud to be associated with the infrastructural growth of the nation, especially in transportation, be it elevated expressways, cable-stayed bridges, metro projects, nuclear reactors, urban development, and so on.

So, let's take a look at some of the key installations from Usha Martin.

Within 60 years of experience in the industry, we have been involved in many substantial projects:

Chenab Bridge

Usha Martin is proud to be a part of this iconic installation. The world's highest railway arch bridge over the River Chenab in Kashmir. Usha Martin designed and manufactured the locked coil wire ropes installed on the 'cable cranes', which have been used to move almost all the segments of the bridge during its construction. The company has supplied the wire ropes for the cranes used in this project.
