MR. NARENDRA KUMAR

Mr. Narendra Kumar founded Sona Foods, now known as Sona Machinery, in 1995 to empower the food processing industry of India with its customized rice milling plants and solutions that fit customers’ resources and market trends. He saw the potential in the agro-processing sector and decided to explore its zenith further.

Mr. Kumar, the Chairman of Sona Machinery, started his striving journey from the small workshop in the lanes of an industrial area in Delhi.

With very little information and awareness regarding the unorganized milling market back then, he carved the way to an internationally acclaimed rice mill machinery manufacturer with his sheer determination and compassion. In 2007, the business moved out of the workshop to a manufacturing facility in Tronica City in Ghaziabad with modern manufacturing machines and additional labour. Since then, it has been scaling new heights with every passing moment. With his extensive years of expertise and experience, he visualizes possibilities and overcomes all the potential hurdles and challenges that cross his path of excellence.
