BDK Valves & Gurukrupa Group acquire Theis Precision Steel

New Delhi, July 26, 2023: BDK Valves and Gurukrupa Group announced the successful 100% acquisition of Theis Precision Steel India Pvt. Ltd. (Theis Precision). 

Theis Precision, formerly owned by Tata Steel Ltd., is a pioneer in specialty cold rolling of high/ medium carbon steels in India. 

Arjen Rijpkema, CEO, Mahler Asia BV in the Netherlands, said, “This sale of Theis Precision Steel to BDK and Gurukrupa brings it back to Indian family ownership after Theis Gmbh in Germany (which was owned by Mahler Asia) acquired it from Tata Steel in 2008. We are convinced that the new owners will contribute strongly to the further development of the company. They bring in-depth knowledge of the steel market, manufacturing and real estate experience which all can strengthen the business. They are geographically much closer to the plant enabling them to be more hands-on and directly involved as promotors than we could ever be from the long distance in Europe. Further I am certain that the new owners will professionally steer Theis Precision towards modernization and accelerated growth, which is fundamental to the business.”

Shyam Mehta, Director, Theis Precision Steel India, said, “The acquisition of ‘one-stop one-window’ Theis Precision Steel is a unique value- enhancing deal bringing a pioneer in specialty cold rolling of high/ medium carbon steels into our fold. This acquisition expands our portfolio presence and showcases our commitment to drive value for our customers. As a leading specialty cold rolled steel strips manufacturer in the country, Theis Precision is the only manufacturer of precision hot rolled solid steel profile sections by a unique process, to satisfy the customers whose needs may be small in quantity but expectations are large. We look forward to combining BDK Valve’s capabilities with the talent and expertise brought by Theis Precision’s team as we expand our market presence.”

Chetan Kothari, Director, Theis Precision Steel India, said, “With the backing of BDK Valves and Gurukrupa Group, Theis Precision Steel can now become an undisputed leader in its market segment and accelerate growth & expansion. The diversification in manufacturing and synergies in terms of manufacturing facilities, processes and products will give us an edge and add to the products and services offered by us to customers. Theis Precision Steel has products across sectors such as agriculture, automotive, construction, cutting tools, earthmoving and textile machinery among others. We will further invest capital in the company to quadruple our volumes to be a global player in speciality steel business.”
