WHAT KIND OF ORGANIZATION IS THE YKK GROUP?
Our integral production system moves ahead with a passion for monozukuri.
THE YKK GROUP MAINTAINS A UNIQUE monozukuri PHILOSOPHY WITH ITS INTEGRAL MANUFACTURING SYSTEM.
We always want to be proud of our fasteners and architectural products, matching or exceeding any and all world quality standards. To accomplish that, we must have materials and machinery that can create our top-ranking products in any manufacturing situation. To make sure, we manufacture every machine ourselves. “Integrated production system” — this is one of the most obvious strengths of the YKK Group. And what is the underpinning for integrated manufacturing? The Machinery and Engineering Group. It plays a vital role in creating and supporting the YKK Group’s peerless monozukuri systems.
MATERIAL DEVELOPMENT TO INNOVATION IN monozukuri AND ANALYTICAL ENGINEERING
We develop engineering and technology that are the core of monozukuri in fastening products and architectural products. Our manufacturing equipment and systems were developed in-house. We also supply spare parts to all our plants around the world. Further, we put extensive effort into new technologies, new analysis methods, new materials, and other items and methods that help our quality edge ever higher. The field of the Machinery and Engineering Group covers all monozukuri systems in the YKK Group.
