Shree Ram Granimarmo Pvt. Ltd. (SRGM) has 17 quarries
in India, including some exclusive varieties.
Coming from humble beginnings in 1985, Shree Ram
Granimarmo Pvt. Ltd. (SRGM) has come a long way to become one of the leading
granite processors and exporters of India.
SRGM operates as a fully integrated granite processing unit in Jalor,
Rajasthan, in Northern India. The company’s Chairman is Sukh Ram Choudhary; the
Director of Production and Mining is Raju Choudhary; and the Director of
Marketing and Finance is Anil Choudhary.
SRGM processes more than 40 popular shades of granite
in its fully automatic granite factory.
“Our mission is to be environment friendly by using
latest technology and to reach the wholesaler direct from our quarries,” said
Anil Bakhru, International Vice President of SRGM. “We are in the process of
starting new manufacturing facilities near prominent ports in India to
logistically reduce the freight/transport costs.”
SRGM owns and operates 17 quarries in India, including some exclusive
varieties. All of the extraction is 100% mechanized, and the company has
developed strategic quarrying processes involving advanced diamond wire sawing
techniques. The quarries are located in seven different areas within the state
of Rajasthan, and they yield granite, quartzite, sandstone, limestone and
marble. Monthly production stands at 10,000 cubic meters per month of granite
Equipment at the facility includes gangsaws from
Gaspari Menotti of Italy,
which are used to process blocks into raw slabs.
In addition to material from its own quarries, SRGM
brings in blocks from other parts of India, which it inspects and transports by
road to the factory for processing. “Since we have leased out facilities at Bangalore, Madurai and Hyderabad, we process
almost all granite from Continental India, which gives us a cutting edge in
cost savings,” Bakhru said.
SRGM processes more than 40 popular shades of granite in its fully automatic
granite factory. The company has all the facilities under one roof for
processing tiles, slabs, vertical panels, cut-to-size pieces, countertops,
steps, risers, skirting and more.
Split material is also
created from smaller blocks and remnant pieces.
The production process involves a combination of
imported machinery from Italy
and Germany as well as
equipment produced in India.
SRGM has a combined in-house production capacity of 270,000 square feet (25,000
square meters) of slabs and tiles per month.
The factory has an experienced staff and rigorous quality-control protocols in
place to ensure that the final products will exceed client expectations. “This
has won SRGM wide appreciation from leading distributors, importers, exporters,
architects and major contractors,” Bakhru said.
Additionally, SRGM is a five-time recipient (2004 to 2008) of honors from
Capexl, a promotional organization that is sponsored by the Indian Government’s
Ministry of Commerce and Industry.
SRGM markets its products at various stone fairs, through government
initiatives, via its own warehouses and online at www.granimarmo.com
