WHAT KIND OF ORGANIZATION IS THE YKK GROUP?
Setting the pace on a global scale.
RESPONDING TO CUSTOMER NEEDS AROUND THE WORLD
YKK zippers are used the world over, and have earned a well-deserved reputation for quality and engineering.
For example, the traditional fashion brands of Europe use high-end products worthy of their image. Sports apparel and working clothes need tough, practical fasteners. And the casual wear of the fast fashion business demand a reliable supply of reasonably priced fastening products.
At the moment, we are doing our best in marketing and product development to serve the growing markets in Asia, beginning with China. YKK’s product field goes far beyond zippers into snaps, buttons, textiles, and plastics (hook-and-loop fastener and buckles, etc.), so we are expanding into every market in the world.
MOMENT BY MOMENT, GLOBAL MARKETS CHANGE, POSING TREMENDOUS CHALLENGES
YKK first went international in 1959. In those days, very few Japanese companies even thought about overseas markets.
Since then, remaining a step ahead of the apparel industry’s globalization, we have aggressively pioneered overseas markets.
Today, YKK personnel live and work in 71 countries and regions across the globe. Marketing, sales, R&D, and manufacturing all work together to satisfy customer needs on a worldwide scale. YKK will continue to meet the challenges of world markets today, and in the years to come.
