Our Story

Mr. P. K. Gupta considers himself a sportsman. He says, “I owe my work energy and enthusiasm to sports that have brimmed me with passion.

I am a Doer with a vision. I am an Entrepreneur.” He was dedicated to lead through his life and take forward the strong character of his grandfather that had become blurred and translucent with time.

He decided to be an entrepreneur. This was the time when barely any people knew the meaning of this word. Soon, he gained all the knowledge from him, and started making a living through the supply of engineering equipment to various Educational and Research Laboratories.

What he learnt during the manufacture of engineering equipment helped him more than just in the business. While making the equipment, one has to bear in mind that there is no room for even a percent of divergence from the actual value. This is how a man should lead his life. One job at a time and doing it with ultimate precision.

The parameters that govern ones life must be strong and there shouldnt be an iota of disbelief in ones own thoughts.

After acquiring enough knowledge about engineering equipment and the process associated, came the time when Mr. P. K. Gupta along with his frontline aid, his brother, Mr. Y. K. Gupta founded their own engineering equipment company in the year 1985. The company was named ‘Maxwell Products (India) and was set up in Agra.

The company manufactured products used as research equipment in laboratories and were highly accurate in measurements. This was the reason the company got a strong foothold of a loyal customer base who would prefer no other product, but Maxwells.

The products of the company were gradually supplied to different colleges across the nation. The setting up of this company was more than just an idea for profit.

The company was based on the strong belief of the two brothers to bring profits to the Northern India. The popularity of the products was evident through the fact that another manufacturing plant had to be set up in Chennai in the year 1986.

This was the first independently owned business of the two brothers, Mr. P. K. Gupta and Mr. Y. K. Gupta who broke all the stereotypes and became entrepreneurs basis their perseverance and dedication.
