Jamnagar brass cluster (Gujarat)


Jamnagar is one of the largest brass industry clusters in India. There are around 3500 brass units in the cluster: 900 foundries, 150 extrusion units, 2100 machining units, and 350 electroplating units. The units produce between 200–400 tonnes per annum (tpa). Most of these units have been operating for about 15–20 years. Unlike other brass clusters in India, Jamnagar produces brass products that require extensive machining processes like turning, milling, grinding, drawing, boring, threading, and so on. The brass products from the cluster range from 1 gram to 10 kilogram in weight, and from 0.05 mm to 600 mm in length and diameter.
