Due to drinking polluted water, Dr. Mahesh Gupta’s two children were suffering from Jaundice, which made him realize the call of the hour to fix the issue or find a solution. He also found out that the available water purifiers then were either of no quality or way too costly for the masses of people to afford. And one more thing that he found in those costly water purifiers is that they were not able to refine the dissolved bacteria in the water. Here is where he came up with the idea to create hand-made, and to do this, he brought some components from abroad and proceeded forward on his way to create hand-made purifiers then in the year 1988, the first domestic RO water purifier has been launched by Dr. Mahesh Gupta, after which, Kent Ro Systems was established, from the scratch. The competition was highly tough in the market due to the big players in the RO industry were already on the playground, but still, no matter how tough the competition was and how well-established the players were, Kent RO faced it all and managed to outshine them all in the market and today it is the leading water purifier brand and one of the most trusted water purifier brands in the country (India). Also, it has 40 percent of the market share in the segment of water purifiers.
