Mr V.K. Jain (55) did his post-graduation in Commerce and started his career in 1985 as a purchasing assistant in a soybean processing unit of VXL India Ltd. in Harda (M.P.). For the next 13 years, he mostly worked in companies belonging to Birla, Glaxo and JK Group. During this period he acquired considerable experience, particularly in the export marketing of Agri-commodities. In 1998 at the age of just 35 years, he started his own business and took the command of Suraj Impex (India) Pvt. Ltd. as its Managing Director with a small capital base but high spirit. Suraj soon became a major exporter of SBM and other agri-commodities from India to Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Japan, Srilanka, Kuwait, Thailand, and Pakistan.
Starting from an annual turnover of just Rs. 45 Crores in 1999-2000 Suraj crossed the turnover of Rs. 1000 Crores in 2010-11 and exporting to European and other countries also. The Company is holding the status of a Star Export House recognized by Government of India.
