Steel mill in Kandahar creates hundreds of jobs

Investment in a steel mill will create 250 direct jobs and 100 indirect jobs in Kandahar Province.

The United Sates Agency for International Development (USAID), through its Assistance in Building Afghanistan by Developing Enterprises Program, procured three-fourths of the emission control units including a rolling mill, a reheating furnace, new electric cabling, workshop machinery, and a crane.

 The Mahmoud Star Steel Mill invested one-fourth of the cost in a new power transformer, cooling beds, water tanks, and also paid for the emission control unit. The imported equipment will reduce the cost of materials for local construction.

The factory is the leading steel melting company in Afghanistan, offering steel billets, steel rebars and steel angles.
