To meet this changing market climate, we have divided our company into six global regions, contributing to the globalization of our customers’ businesses. Today, YKK fastening products are used around the world, and we continue to meet the challenge of further increasing the value of our brand and creating new demand for our products.
About YKK Corporation
YKK manufactures and markets a wide range of zippers, with a primary focus on three types: metal, coil, and VISLON®. The metal zipper has the longest history and is suited for various applications such as jackets, luggage, jeans and others. A coil zipper is made of spiral plastic elements, including polyester and nylon. This is the softest zipper among the three types of zippers. The VISLON® zipper is made of injection molded plastic elements. Rich element color variations are created by formulating the color pigment during the injection process.
YKK’s Plastic Hardware utilizes YKK’s advanced technology gained from our many years of experience in molded injection. Please take a look at our extensive range of buckles, strap adjusters, loops, D-rings, cord stoppers, and more.
