The Founder of the group Late Mr. M.L. Shroff commenced his career in 1950 by exporting minerals such as Iron Ore, Manganese Ore, Quartz from the western coast of India. Interestingly the inauguration of Kandla Port, in Gujarat State, was with 2 break bulk shipments and Late Mr. M.L. Shroff effected the 2nd shipment. After the government?s nationalization of these minerals, Mr. M.L.Shroff moved towards processing minor minerals such as

coal, bentonite, quartz, feldspar etc.

The availability of minor minerals being abundant in south, Chennai, earlier called Madras, was the destination chosen for exports as well as catering to local market. In 1968, M/s.

the largest raw quartz processing plants in southern part of India.
