Contributing to a healthier society with ultra-high performance sports apparel and dust control and hygiene-related products
We represent Montura, an Italia's sports apparel brand. We also sell a variety of dust control-related products. Through these businesses we are improving the health and quality of life in our society.
MONTURA was established in Italy in 1998 as a mountain climbing apparel brand.
The brand has since expanded across the entire sports spectrum.
In Japan, the established mountain climbing line distributed by Kuriyama Group has been joined by athletic wear for trail runners, sports climbers and other athletes, as well as outdoor apparel, golf wear and other specially branded clothing sold in outlets and EC.
MONTURA is a top climbing apparel brand with a large and loyal following among alpinists. This is thanks to clothing designs that rely on a wealth of collected data which ensure that they have the functionality required for climbing even the most rugged of mountains.
This high-quality athletic apparel continues to evolve every year in response to the feedback from the many trail runners, sport climbers and other athletes.
Thanks to its superior shape, cut and stretchability, this golf apparel maintains a close fit without feeling uncomfortable. The end result is a better golf swing.
Perfect for camping, hiking and other outdoor activities, as well as for use in daily life, this apparel is popular for its stylish, high-performance design.

At the Sochi Olympics in 2014, she gave a performance in her free skating routine that captivated audiences around the world. At the World Championships held in March of that year, she won the gold medal for the third time, the most by any Japanese figure skater.
In 2017, she announced her retirement from competitive skating.
From 2018, she held a nationwide ice skating show called "Mao Asada Thanks Tour" to express her appreciation to fans.
Over a period of three years, the show was held a total of 202 times across 50 venues.
In 2022, a new ice show "BEYOND Tour" produced and performed by herself is being held all over the country.
As part of our support for sports and sporting activities, Kuriyama Group has signed a sponsorship agreement with professional golfer Taihei Sato.
Through MONTURA, we are also official supporters for a number of athletes in various other sporting fields.
With the encouragement of his parents, Sato took up golfing and found much success early on, including winning the National Junior High School Championship title, successive Kanto High School Championship titles, and, in university, a gold medal at the Universiade as a member of Japan's national team. After turning professional, he has been affiliated with Kuriyama since 2018 and has been the top prize money winner twice on the AbemaTV Tour. He tackled the full regular tour in 2019. His successes, such as coming in equal-fourth in the Top Cup Tokai Classic, earned him a position as a seeded player in 2020. His personal best is an equal-third finish in the Fujisankei Classic, which is the opening tournament of the men's golf tour in Japan.
Following a corporate renaming in 2021, Kuriyama Pulizia Corporation is Kuriyama Group's dust control-focused subsidiary. Among other things, it handles the planning and sales of environmental products (mats) containing environmentally-friendly, plant-based resins and hygiene management-related products (mats and mops) containing antibacterial materials. Currently, the company is focused on developing anti-viral products (mats) demanded by the market.
"Pulizia" is an Italian word meaning "cleaning," which is the essence and aim of this company. Kuriyama Pulizia is working to develop its product planning and proposal capacity to meet the various challenges facing society in recent years and, thereby, contributeto a prosperous future where everyone can shine and grow together.
Doormats are an indispensable product essential for keeping dust, dirt and moisture from getting indoors, such on the bottoms of shoes. The mats provided by Kuriyama Pulizia are made in Japan using exceptionally durable Japanese spun-dyed nylon - among the strongest chemical fibers available - while the reverse side of the mat is made using NBR rubber, which provides outstanding oil-resistance.
The rental mops offered by Kuriyama Pulizia are made from raw cotton fibers which undergo a reactive dyeing process to turn them yellow or navy blue, thus greatly reducing the need for overdyeing. In addition, these are the only rental mops in Japan that are also SEK-certified antibacterial mops.
Kuriyama Pulizia handles a full range of hygiene management products, including basic hand cleaning products like hand soaps and hand sanitizers, and disinfecting alcohols essential to hygiene management. It also promote water purifiers that ensure customers can have safe and delicious drinking water anywhere.
Kuriyama Pulizia's commitment to ensuring clean and pleasant interiors in buildings, offices and homes includes a range of products that extends beyond rental doormats and mops.
