The family owned confectionery business started in 1926, as a small, manually operated, in-house confectionery products manufacturing unit for the local market.
The joint family worked together at a small-scale. Until later when a young man began to feel the need to fulfil the market’s demands and manufacture for other companies as well. This was a major step. And thus, the Makson group was formed.
Later, in 1972, the founder & chairman of the company Mr. Dhanjibhai, who happens to be a mechanical engineer, visited an exhibition at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi. There, he came across a Double Twist-wrapping machine and decided to build confectionery machinery. He started building his own machine just by viewing the image of the machine in the catalogue and finally succeeded after putting in eight years of hard work.
The chairman of the company Mr. Dhanjibhai was awarded "Self made Industrialist" award in the year 1981 by the Vice President of India and Ex-Officio Chairman of the Rajya Sabha Mr. Hidayat Ullah. After this award many other awards followed, such as, "The National Award for Import Substitution" in the year 1983 and "Export Award" by the Government of India. He was also awarded the "LENCO Excellence Award" as "The Best Industrialist & Philanthropist".
Makson Group started building machineries and emerged as an export unit for confectionery machinery to the countries such as Algeria, Brazil, Kenya, Nigeria, Tunisia, U.A.E., Zambia, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Indonesia, Mauritius, Nepal, Srilanka, USA and so on. Makson has even supplied a turnkey plant to Procter & Gamble Nigeria & Kenya and many other reputed companies. Today makson delivers confectionery machines to India & all over the world.
In the year 1983, Makson expanded as a contract confectionery manufacturer to renowned companies such as Nestle, Cadbury's, Unilever, Hindustan Lever Limited, Ranbaxy, Cipla, Himalaya, Boots Piramal, Knoll Pharma, Coca Cola, Blue Cross Labs, etc. Makson has a dedicated manufacturing facility for P&G, Johnson & Johnson and GlaxoSmithKline. Johnson & Johnson awarded Makson the "Contract Manufacturer of the Year Award" for 2 consecutive years, 1995 & 1996.
In the year 2004, Makson started manufacturing 100 various types of gumbases, of International Standard for Chewing and Bubble Gum.
