The Visakhapatnam steel plant - Rashtriya Ispat Nigam Ltd will extend full support to vendors, MSMEs and ancillary units, according to Chairman and Managing Director P. Madhusudan.

He was speaking at the inaugural of the vendors' meet in the plant on Thursday. "We will always encourage and support MSMEs, startups and vendors and we have put in place certain guidelines for their effective functioning," he said. Vendors from Andhra Pradesh and Telangana participated in the meet organised by the materials management department at Ukkunagaram.

He appreciated the role played by vendors in the RINL growth and stressed the need for strong supply chain management for the company.
