Menthol Business

Agson Global Pvt. Ltd. (AGPL), a domestically grown multinational was originated and inaugurated in the year 1997 under the aegis of Mr Apresh Garg.

Focused plan, deliverable strategies, critical analysis and corrective counter measures to spur growth, these are the fundamental principles followed religiously across the globe to succeed in any business domain. To lead the razor sharp competitive edge, a company must have state of the art technologies with consistent focus on research and development work.

Our menthol plant started operating since April 2013 and in almost little over two years’ time our products have achieved industry benchmarks. To spread our wings globally, we acquired all major international certifications that are necessary to sell menthol products in different countries.

Noticeable Achievement

Being a natural source of Menthol products, our carefully crafted menthol crystal is a 100% natural product, which delivers cooling, refreshing, and has a pleasantly strong minty aroma.

A well-connected high-tech plant

To achieve sustainable revenue growth, we have set up a high-tech sprawling plant at 304, HSIDC Kundli, Sonepat that is just 30 kms from New Delhi Airport.

We are all set to expand our business over a broader base that will start showing its impact in the near future only.
