The heavy mineral mining industry has come a long way from what it used to be. Today India has made a mark in the global markets for heavy mineral products like Garnet and ilmenite. This can all be credited to private miners like Mr. Vaikundarajan.
Mr. S. Vaikundarajan owns a heavy mineral mining company named VV Minerals, India. VV Mineral is based in Tamil Nadu. Mr. Vaikundarajan had started this company 2 decades ago and today his company stands to be nation’s leading private heavy mineral mining company. They have an annual output of about 7,00,000 tonnes of heavy minerals.
Mr. Vaikundarajan comes from a very humble background; all that he is today has been achieved by his own efforts. He has provided India with a better future for global prospects in International trade and export business. He is the Chairman and Managing Director of the company right now. His son Mr. V. Subramanian is also one of the Directors of the company. It is a family owned business; the other directors include Mr. J Muthurajan and S. Jegatheesan.
