    Mahesh Gupta Chairman Kent RO Systems

    A mechanical engineer started in 1985, from a small room in his house with just 20,000 which he had saved from his job with IOCL.

    His first invention was in the field of petroleum conservation instrument where he earned fame and half a dozen patents to his credit.

    His turning point came with the establishment of KENT RO SYSTEM in the year 1998 when he charted out on a new enterprise after jaundice gripped his son in a posh colony of South Delhi.

    Knowing that jaundice is a water-borne disease, Gupta researched and analyzed all the available water purifiers in the market.

    He was dissatisfied with available options and decided to make a better quality purifier. After several trials, he made his own water purifier and became confident that is product is good enough to be marketed. “Coming from an engineering background, making my own water purifier was not a difficult task; all I needed to do was export the components. – Mahesh Gupta

    The experiment turned into success. And then I thought to bring it out in commercially in the market. I started from scratch with an investment of about 1 lac and a four-member team.

    Today Kent has grown a 40% market share in RO mineral and has turnover 580 crore and 2,500 employees.
