WHO WE ARE:
Established in 1988, OM Exports is one of the largest exporters of Monument products from India. We are known for creating the most complex and exquisite Monuments and Memorials with our expertise in design and high level of manufacturing skills.

THE MANAGEMENT
The managing director, Mr. N. Ashoken, a dual postgraduate in management, has worked extensively with major European manufacturers of machine, tools and consumables in the field of natural stone for over three decades. He has also worked with some of the largest quarrying companies of the world. In the early 90s, Mr. Ashoken was one of the most sought after consultants for setting up granite processing units with all-German imported machines, and has set up numerous units pan-Asia. In the domestic market, he has rich and varied experience in quarrying, manufacturing, marketing and financial management in the arena of granite & marble calibrated tiles, monuments & memorials and rough block exports for over two decades.
His in-depth knowledge and experience in the Natural Stone industry, both Indian and international, is all-encompassing. His productive global tours and excellent rapport established with leading buyers across the world have earned him wide recognition. Mr. Ashoken’s vision, leadership and character have been instrumental in the success of OM Exports.
In taking the Natural Stone industry to the next generation, Om Exports is also lead by Mr. Arvind Ashoken, who is an Engineer with a postgraduate degree in Operations management. He has hands-on experience and international market exposure, having worked in Germany in both natural stone processing and tool manufacturing sectors. Having been groomed for this role, Mr.Arvind's direct approach has honed him into an experienced selector of rough granite blocks and an adept quality inspector. He is keen on taking monument processing to the next level by employing modern technology and newer processing methods.

LOCATION
OM Exports has the prodigious advantage of being located in a city of strategic business importance with an abundance of skilled labor as well as a culture and tradition of working with natural stone.
Spread over 8000 sq.m, the factory is located at Chennai’s most industrialized area at SIPCOT, Irungattukottai, amidst the country's best manufacturers. It is equidistant and in close proximity to both the Chennai container terminal as well as the city centre.
Chennai, in the late 90s was the epicentre for all natural stone related activity in India. It houses India’s most prestigious & pioneering granite processing companies, where the initiation and growth of Indian monument manufacturing started. The city’s affair with stonework dates back to 800AD and earlier as evident in the monolithic temples of Mahabalipuram, and the serene and divine gopurams of the Kapaleeshwarar Temple.
Today, Chennai is also one of the largest and fastest growing centres for automotive and IT sectors, employing millions of home-grown engineering graduates from prominent engineering institutions across Tamil Nadu.
