Belagavi is a pioneer in the development of Foundry Industrial Sector in Karnataka
prominently manufacturing Iron & Steel castings catering to the needs of General Engineering, Machine Tools,

Belgaum is having more than 150 foundries in the range from Small, Medium & Large Scale Industries
producing more than 1.6 Lakhs tons of casting per annum which is valued about more than 700 crores per annum
Over a period of four decades, the Foundry Industries in Belagavi have not grown to expected level due to lack of Infrastructure Facilities, advanced testing facilities, pollution problem & old technology
he Foundrymen of Belagavi have undertaken active lead in establishing the “Belagavi Foundry Cluster” the first of its kind in Karnataka
It is a great privilege that all industrialists have made hard and sincere efforts to bring this project in the city of Belagavi.
Belagavi Foundry Cluster was formed in the Year 2004, with the objective to support foundries in Belagavi & nearby areas to enhance effectiveness & competitiveness
achieving excellence through world class infrastructure for the growth of foundry units in & around Belgaum & to make them internationally competitive
The Belgaum Foundry Cluster project has been sanctioned by Government of India
under Industrial Infrastructure Upgradation Scheme (IIUS-2003) from Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP), Ministry of Commerce and Industries (MCI), New Delhi.
