Fastening Products Group

The Fastening Products Group does exactly what the name implies. It produces and markets fasteners. This business is where YKK started, and we have produced and marketed fastening products for more than 75 years. Now the world’s textile and sewing products industries are seeing even greater diversification in consumer needs and shorter product cycles, which means we must work even harder to speed up product development and reduce production costs. 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® brand 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.
