JSW Steel today inked a pact with Algerias Cevital to buy its Italian arm Aferpi for around Rs 600 crore, a source in the know of the development said today.
The Sajjan Jindal-owned firm had earlier tried to acquire the second largest plant in Italy in 2014, when it was known as Lucchini. The Algerian conglomerate Cevital however acquired Lucchini and renamed it Acciaierie e Ferriere di Piombino (Aferpi).
