The challenger’s spirit has been passed down to take on new business. Mitsufuji as a traditional Japanese textile manufacturer has transformed into a global solution company with a basis of Co-Creation.
The First Stage
In 1956, Mitsufuji started Nishijin textile factory to manufacture Nishijin “obi” and textile fabrics.
The Second Stage
In 1992, we focused on silver-metalized fiber with anti-electromagnetic waves, anti-bacterial and anti-odor effects. Our own brand "AGposs®" has launched and received high praise internationally.
The Third Stage
In 2014, we discovered the value of the excellent conductivity of the silver-metalized fiber as AGposs® while exploring new developments. We have decided to focus on development with strengths of its "conductivity".
The Forth Stage
In 2016, we were able to fuse innovatively the know-how of the traditional textile industry and the forefront of the management of biometric information. In-house all for smart-wears, transmitters, application with cloud and algorithms as "hamon ®“ was born.
The Fifth Stage
And now, the application of wearable device is expanding from work site to sports, medical, care and welfare. We analyze biometric information more deeply, to realize delivering the security, safety and hope to the people.
