The Maithan vision statement includes sustainability as one of the foundations to become a premiere alloy company. We believe in achieving this vision by building, nurturing and caring for the communities that we function in.
Our connection with sustainability goes way back into the history of our organization. Being a homebuilt company, CSR and related activities have always been a part of our history- way before we became Maithan. Since then, sustainability has always been a core focus area in our corporate DNA.
Taking out a slice from our history, our present and our future, we believe that building sustainable communities for us begins with Education followed by Health and Safety. As stepping stones to larger and more widespread programs, we have initiated some of the below programs in our key focus areas of Education, Health & Safety.
School and College Trusts at West Bardhaman:
The promoter family of Maithan Alloys are the founder trustee of Barakar Shree Marwari Vidyalaya, setup in 1932. The institution is being managed by a trust comprising of representatives from the founders, State Government and other social dignitaries. The school currently educates close to 1000 students in the CBSE curriculum.
Maithan has also been an active trustee at the ITI College Rupnarayanpur since 2010. The West Bengal college specializes in ITI & vocational courses. The graduating students strength has gone up 4 times within the first four years
Health & Safety
Guru Gangeshwar Bhooramal Nihshulk Chikitsa Seva Sansthan, Vrindavan
In 1994, Mr. Bhooramal Agarwalla- the grandfather of the Maithan CMD, started a free eye checkup clinic in association with The Guru Gangeshwar Bhooramal Nihshulk Chikitsa Seva Sansthan in Vrindavan. The company still continues to be one of the trustees on this clinic by taking forward the legacy of its forefathers.
Clean Drinking Water Project at Vishakhapatnam
Maithan Alloys in association with a few villages in the vicinity of the company plant, have together come up with a self-sustainable model that will provide pure and clean drinking water to the entire village. As per the framework, the village will provide a shed, power and input water to Maithan- who will in turn install a water purifier and the part-time operator for the same. The villagers will now have access to clean drinking water- not just for drinking but also for other household chores as well.
Periodic Health Camps
Maithan also conducts regular health check-ups for employees and nearby villages. The camp is conducted by a Maithan-employed doctor and paramedical professionals. All participants in the camp are provided with check-up, medicines and advised to see a specialist in case if any condition requires further medical attention.
