R. Expo is owned by three brothers and one sister, Raj Kumar Mathur (the eldest brother), Ashok Mathur (the middle child), Shiv Kumar Mathur (the youngest brother) and their sister Raj Kumari Mathur (the oldest sibling).
The company’s history began with their grandfather Mr. Jagdamba Prashad Mathur when he founded Mathur Perfumery Works in 1932. A humble beginning, but this is where it all started. Incorporating natural products such as herbs, plants, and roots allowed him to craft unique products that were loved by his local community.
The business was eventually passed onto his son, Mr. Durga Prashad Mathur. His son followed his fathers techniques and eventually rose to success. His wife, Mrs. Raj Rani Mathur helped him with the store-front.
Later on, India started becoming a popular tourist location and with a view of this new market, they decided to expand their business and begin exporting. R. Expo was founded in 1972 and new production facilities were setup. The helm of the company was passed on to Raj Kumar Mathur in 1989 and is still owned by him and his siblings today. They still use the same location setup by their grandfather over 80 years ago, both for production, as well as a show-room.
