The three most promising employees of VV Minerals speak about their experiences in the company. VV Mineral is a heavy mineral mining company privately owned by Mr. S. Vaikundarajan. Located in Tamil Nadu, it is the top most beach sand mining company not only in Tamil Nadu, but also in the entire country. The main business involves garnet mining, ilmenite mining, rutile mining and zircon mining. It was the first private company to export ilmenite in India. They are also the leading export company of heavy minerals.
Mr. Robert Kingsley, the production manager, is working for 18 years now, feels, “The best thing I like about VVM is that they prefer local talents instead of recruiting experienced persons from far off places. In fact 95 % of the managerial staff are the sons of soil”. He feels proud to be part of VV Minerals because they offer work based on the persons qualification without giving importance to academic performance and then train them to become an asset to the company.
