From Japan to the world.
The Kurita success story began in the middle of the last century: Haruo Kurita founded Kurita Water Industries Ltd. in Japan in 1949. Initially the company provided the Navy with chemical products for the treatment and optimization of boiler water. Kurita extended its range and offered systems for water treatment shortly afterwards. The next expansion came in the 1960s with chemical solutions for process optimization in paper production, the petrochemical industry and in steel production.
Its growing expertise in water and process treatment, its leadership in the Asian market as well as continuous research and development allowed Kurita Water Industries to consolidate its global market position.
The Kurita Group has bolstered its business platform by bringing Fremont Industries, LLC into the Group in the Unites States. We have also established new overseas Kurita Group companies in Vietnam and the United Arab Emirates in 2017. We will accelerate its efforts to further expand its business in all regions by establishing a global business structure spanning for the four regions of Japan, Asia, Europe and the US.
Kurita’s actions are directed by its environmental responsibility. Study the properties of water, master them, and we will create an environment in which nature and man are in harmony. This is one of the guiding principles of our company philosophy. And this is our daily commitment: in our research and development as well as in concrete solutions for you on site.
We are driven by the realization that water - our most important resource - is in limited supply. All our energy and competence is therefore invested in the effective usage of this precious commodity. Innovative technologies like Kuriverter RC provide decisive impulses – with solutions that profit our customers. And the environment.
We commit ourselves not only to meet technological challenges, but also use our abilities to support humanitarian projects.
