Vesuvius India is a part of U K based COOKSON group 
and one of the largest manufacturer of Refractories in India .
In 2008 Cookson aquires foseco hence
two companies (Vesuvius India and Foseco India) are
operating in India under the same parent. But the product line
of these two companies are different and
are not competing each other. Vesuvius India makes high-end
refractory products,flow control systems and services.
These products are used by steel manufacturers using the
continuous casting process for manufacturing steel.
Since most of the steel producers have switched to this
technology company’s products are in good demand and the
increase in steel production due to the revival in core sector will
help the company a lot in future.Cement,glass,foundry  and
petrochemical industries are also using company’s products.
Company’s main plants are located in Kolkatta and visakapatanam.
Strength of parent  and its leadership position in refractory
 products with strong R&;D is expected to help the company
to add more products to its portfolio.Company has posted
 a turnover of Rs.364 crore and a net profit of 37 crore last’s year ending is in December .Next financial year
Vesuvius is expected to perform even better mainly because
of the improvement in steel production where its products
are used.Vesuvius is an excellent MNC company available
at a P/E of just 13 which is at the lower end for a
company like this.CMP is Rs.251/-
