Our visionary founder, Shri Murarirao Yeshwantrao Ghorpade, said, "All that we get from the soil of Sandur, in one form or the other, should be primarily used to benefit people of Sandur". These golden words of Shri MY Ghorpade are deeply embedded in the DNA that forms the ethos of "The Sandur Manganese & Iron Ores Ltd" and continues to govern all our practices and operations.
Enriching the lives of the people of Sandur and preserving the ecological balance of the land has been our foremost priority. For centuries, the royal administration of Sandur had operated on the principles of serving the people, extending trust and promoting inclusive growth for all. Our leaders from the same noble lineage have inculcated these strong values and principles in the Company's core culture.
"Today, SMIORE is recognised for it's people-first approach, which is manifested in its advantageous employee welfare programs, people engagement opportunities, and grassroots-level community development initiatives, in addition to an award-winning sustainability development framework and a holistic CSR system focused on education, development and healthcare".
At SMIORE, we take great pride in the wealth of goodwill accumulated over more than six decades through an unfaltering devotion towards our people and our motherland. We are governed by the tenets of good governance, fair play and righteousness. We are driven to maintain social and communal harmony, nurture cultural and traditional heritage, preserve and safeguard local fine arts and Indian value systems.
