The story behind Stratus Steel:
By the year 2008, we were one of the only 3 players who invested in this technology and the supporting machinery. Up until now, Mgi India has designed and executed close to 500 buildings and a majority of them were taken as turn-key projects by the government.
However, our founder, Vidur Chandra with the belief that LGSF has far better scope in the contemporary world, started Stratus Steel.
Stratus Steel majorly stands to offer design and manufacturing expertise for the LGSF industry while also providing a comprehensive range of related services for your brand.
