Montana Sport North America (MSNA) has become the U.S. distributor of Briko Maplus alpine wax products. 

MSNA, the North American arm of parent company Montana Sport International, distributes the Swiss made Crystal Glide Finish ski and snowboard service machinery and related products, including Jetbond binding testers and ABS Storage Systems.   During the last 35 years,  Montana innovations have included stone grinding machines for service, belt tuning, digital grinding with discs, HTT and Radial Tuning and grinding robots and infrared waxing.  Its home office and distribution warehouse is located in Groveland, Massachusetts.  A Western U.S. office and warehouse is in Golden,  Colorado.

Briko Maplus Ski Wax is owned by Guarniflon spa, an Italian company synonymous with scientific research, innovation and performance in the field of ski wax.  Over the last 25 years they have formulated a line of waxes which represents the best Italian technology available in the field of racing and recreational winter sports.  Unlike many wax manufacturers that buy products on the chemical market, Briko Maplus develops their own products in-house and can therefore maintain proprietary control.  According to Guido Chiarle, Briko Maplus Division Manager, “We are the only company to process internally the fluorinated and perfluorinated components to blend with high melting point synthetic paraffins to produce our line of high performance waxes.  These are well known amongst the World Cup teams, servicemen and ski factories.  These waxes offer optimum gliding in all snow conditions, with twice the durability of all other paraffins.”

“Briko Maplus is an excellent fit with Montana”, said Scott Thirkell director of MSNA .  “We’re excited to be able to offer this complete line of top quality waxes and products to all of our customers from back shop rental service thru recreation ski and board service  to World Cup racing.  It integrates perfectly with our current line of products and should be of interest to our well established customer base of ski specialists.”
