Chairman's Message

Ashok Patni
Dear Stakeholders,

Thank you for being a part of Wonder Cement!

Wonder Cement came into being with a dream to build a better place for the youth, their families and the nation at large. Not only did we dream of being one of India's top cement manufacturer, but transformed this dream into a reality by setting up one of the first fully-automated plants in India. We have invested in state-of-the-art German technology and were one of the first to introduce new standards of quality control.

Cement is the foundation upon which we construct our lives, our homes, our schools, our roads and our societies. Our structures will not only serve the generations of tomorrow, but will also carry our legacy as they stand the test of time.

We have come a long way and have always strived to blur the thin line between dreams and realities. Today, Wonder cement's parent company, R K Marble, is a thriving brand in India. Since dreams and possibilities arise with every new beginning, Wonder Cement's promise to you is Ek Perfect Shuruaat.

I would like to extend my gratitude to all employees, customers, suppliers, financial institutions, advisors and other stakeholders, for their dedication and undying support. Our central focus is and will always be to create value for our stakeholders. As long as we are committed to providing best quality of product and services, I am sure we will continue to be India's most respected cement producing company.

Sincerely,

Ashok Patni

Chairman, Wonder Cement

Management

Mr. Ashok Patni


Chairman

The journey of Mr. Ashok Patni, chairman emeritus of R.K. Group, is a narration of deep values, ambition and success. From his native place in Kishangarh, with the legacy of a family-run wholesale business in grains, his quest began with a dream for a larger canvas.

Mr. Patni set up R.K. Marble in May 1989 with a clear vision and objective to establish the nascent company as a major player in the national and international market. Today, the company employs the latest mining technology, has expanded production abroad and holds the title of the largest marble producer from the Guinness Book of World Records.

Currently he serves a pivotal role in the diversified business of cement, where he has imprinted his trademark of honesty, integrity, transparency and quality. Under his leadership, Wonder Cement has already acquired the distinction of being the best quality cement in the country, certified and buttressed by numerous independent agencies, dealers and end-users.

For Mr. Patni, work is a passion - a hobby practiced and pursued from his early calls at the factory. He has a profound love for nature and is highly passionate about development of greenery and plantation. His strong commitment to society has been the driving force behind the extensive welfare and social programs undertaken by the company, which go above and beyond the mandatory corporate social responsibility.

His determination, his leadership and his compassion are qualities that make Mr. Ashok Patni a true visionary. In the years to come, his influence will be of paramount importance to the success of the company as he continues to build the dream that began his career.

Mr. Vimal Patni


Vice Chairman

Always keen on adding value to his family business, Mr. Vimal Patni took charge to diversify into production of cement. He gave a resounding start to his maiden venture by creating a brand associated with the company's philosophy of quality, trust and transparency. Mr. Patni, now in his late 40's, exudes full confidence about the company's future based on the pace of growth in expanding its capacities. Shortly after winning a government bid for the mining of limestone in Nimbahera, Mr. Patni began a consulting process with some of the foremost and acknowledged leaders in the cement industry, also consulting Ernst & Young before finalizing the factory blueprint. He worked overtime from the foundation of the factory until the point of production, resulting into creation of the huge infrastructure spread over 1050 hectare (mines and factory) in an industry record for any greenfield plant. A go-getter, he learned the nuances of the cement trade in a very short span and is now at the helm of every activity.

The creation of additional jobs for the youths had always been his motto and the present endeavor is geared to fulfilling that objective. Mr. Patni has sought to imbibe the best corporate practices at the factory - promoting a clean and green environment and fostering a work culture comparable to the best in the industry. While he cherishes traveling and exploring various countries, he finds greater peace and satisfaction by giving back to our own society through thoughtful philanthropic activities.

He was instrumental in creating a footprint for the company in Turkey by acquiring mines and establishing R.K. Marble on firm footing in international markets.

He firmly believes in honesty and hard work, an integral part of the continued success of the R.K. Group.

Mr. Tarun Chauhan


Management Advisor

Mr. Tarun Chauhan is a man of many talents, having lead a career spanning from cricketer to advertising professional. At the young age of 18, Tarun Singh Chauhan showed remarkable self assurance on the cricketing field, but he was someone with a marked difference - trading the bat and ball for a career in advertising.

After associating with some of the world's best agencies, he was nominated as President of Lowe after being with the company for nearly 10 years. However, Chauhan thought the job was getting too comfortable and less challenging, so from a senior manager in JWT in the late 1990's, he returned to JWT as Managing Partner. Recently, with the launch of TSC Consulting, he aims to build a reservoir of the best management talent that will help companies, brands and Governments win.

As an advisor to Wonder Cement, his main focus is on making Wonder Cement the most preferred brand in the cement category. He is meticulously involved in the process of building the brand Wonder Cement and wants to leave no stone unturned to achieve his vision of making Wonder Cement one of the most respected brands in the country.

For a man who has worn many hats and is always pressed for time, he still religiously and regularly makes way for following his hobbies and doing what the heart wants. He is fond of growing his own food, spending time at his country home harvesting paddy, running a dairy, breeding goats, and working with and riding on his pet horses.

While success changes some people, few have the grounding to remain on track. Tarun Chauhan is surely one among the few!
