OUR FOUNDERS

StonaSand is the amalgamation of years worth of experience and knowledge that has come from over 25 years in entrepreneurship. The company's founder Ajay Kharbanda wanted to find a way for mines to be more efficient, process oriented while also being sustainable and responsible. He succeeded by creating StonaSand--the latest innovation in mining technology. The idea behind this ground-breaking invention was born when our visionary entrepreneur found himself wondering how he could improve efficiency at mines without impacting sustainability or responsibility. With his wealth of entrepreneurial business experience and 15+ years expertise within the industry, it wasn't long before an answer presented itself: start with something revolutionary like using M Sand instead or River Sand!
