Infrastructure & R&D

Production Facility

Nestled in a sprawling green campus an hour’s drive from Mysore, what used to be a textile mill has given way to a state-of-the-art production facility. Surrounded by coconut, chikoo (Sapodilla), banana plantation further symbolizes our green, with-the-environment technology. With over 200000 sqft available for expansion, we are well equipped to meet the demand. We have a current production capacity of 4 tonnes per day and our capacity will increase to 80 tonnes per day in the next 18 months.

Production Facility

STEER – ADC & PSDC

At STEER’s Application Development Centers (ADC’s), competence arising from R & D and other technological forays are tested in real life scenarios, under actual production conditions. Each ADC is a center for progressive research and comes fully equipped with the latest in technology to help our partners and customers create new materials and solutions that help deliver outstanding value and create a better world. STEER has 3 state-of-the-art ADC’s, located in India, the U.S, and Japan.

Key activities of ADC
