A simple man with lofty ideals, a visionary in the truest sense of the word, Shri N Ranga Rao, very early in his life, aimed to become a leading incense stick manufacturing company in Karnataka. With a passion in his soul and determination in his work, this prolific businessman gave wings to his dream with the launch of Mysore Products and General Trading Company in 1948. His vision was structured around the conviction "Quality backed by services will pay".

Within months of its inception, the business began to grow, and it was time for the Cycle brand to be born. Committed to quality, Cycle Pure Agarbathies had a series of firsts in the incense manufacturing history. It was the first company to obtained design copy rights to make an interesting range of incense sticks, cones, and sambrani. In order to create exquisite fragrances in the perfumery industry, the company set up its own in-house fragrance creation workshop. Every product that was developed in this humble place reflected a sense of purity and goodness that is the underlying essence of any pooja ritual.

Over the decades, Shri N Ranga Rao's dream has been taken forward by the successive generations, and today Cycle Pure Agarbathies is a world leader in pooja needs and home care and is exported to over 65 countries. Some of the biggest celebrities from the length and breadth of the country represents the brand and no home that performs pooja rituals is unfamiliar with the name Cycle.
