In 1952, the vision, business acumen and spirit of enterprise of the Founder Chairman Mr. Vasudev M. Salgaocar laid the foundation for the development of a thriving mining industry and export trade of the company, V.M. Salgaocar & Bro Pvt. Ltd. After passing away of the Founder Chairman in 1984, the Company has been led by his two sons, Mr. Shivanand V. Salgaocar, Managing Director and Mr. Dattaraj V. Salgaocar, Managing Director.
Never looking back since its inception, the company is one of the leading Indian suppliers of processed iron ore to NSC and POSCO, which are amongst the world’s largest steel makers, besides other steel mills in China, Romania and the Middle East.
The commercial activities are not just limited to mining, but have been expanded to include various ventures in the field of hospitality, travel and tourism and real estate.
The Company is deeply committed to protecting and preserving the natural environment not only by employing sustainable techniques in the mining operations but also by exploring renewable sources of energy like Wind Energy Generators.
Apart from these business activities the Company lays great emphasis on contributing to Society. The SMRC’s V.M. Salgaocar Hospital, the V.M. Salgaocar College of Law, the V.M. Salgaocar Foundation and the Salgaocar Sports Club are concrete expressions of the group’s social concerns.
