Minoura is a supplier of bicycle parts and accessories, such as sturdy smartphone mounts and bottle cages. Minoura offers a wide range of inventive and well thought-out products. Their design, presentation, quality and (most importantly) functionality are all illustrative of the Minoura brand’s class. Minoura Mfg. Co. Ltd. was founded by the Minoura family in 1933. It is now a third generation family business that manages all aspects of its business processes, from stock acquisition to sales, from R&D processes to manufacturing and marketing. Only high-quality products leave the Minoura factory. Minoura was actually one of the first companies to use robotic machines to manufacture its products. The main advantage: consistent quality and finish. The magnetic resistance on exercise bikes is a Minoura invention. Like many of Minoura’s inventions, it has been copied extensively. The only thing that can’t be copied, is the Minoura quality. Minoura celebrated its 80th anniversary in 2013.
