Established as a small trading firm in the early part of the last century, the Khemka family developed one of India's leading mining and mineral businesses exporting mineral commodities around the world.
Expansion after the Second World War included supplying mineral commodities (principally iron and manganese ores) to re-industrialising nations such as Japan.
The efforts of the Indian government to bring the natural resources sector under national domain after independence led the family to seek new opportunities, which it developed as a supplier of major infrastructure and capital goods and services.
In 1958, the founders of SUN Group established business links with Soviet Foreign Trade Organisations to export capital goods and infrastructure from the Soviet Union to India and the region.
By the 1970s the Khemka Group had become one of India's largest suppliers of infrastructure and services, working with leading heavy equipment manufacturers. The Group built strong commercial links with companies from the US, Europe, the Soviet Union, Eastern Europe and Asia Pacific regions.
SUN Group was established to address the investment and investment management opportunities in global emerging markets, leveraging the family's expertise and relationships.
