Zippers – YKK Hong Kong Ltd
The Yoshida Kōgyō Kabushiki gaisha (YKK Group) is a Japanese group of manufacturing companies. It’s the world’s largest largest zipper/zip manufacturerer but also produces other fastening products, architectural products and industrial machinery.
What would later become YKK operated initially as San-es Shokai and was founded by Tadao Yoshida in Higashi Nihonbashi, Tokyo in January 1934. The company was renamed YKK in 1945.
YKK has manufacturing facilities in 71 countries including several in China, one in Macau and…Hong Kong.
From the company website: YKK Hong Kong Limited was established in 1966 as a subsidiary of YKK Corporation. The company produces and sells zippers under the brand name of YKK, as well as other products such as plastic parts and tape notions.
Our Tuen Mun factory building not only provides the production base in Hong Kong for the company as an industrial building, but is also available for rental to private tenants as a rental building.
In order to achieve the goal of being a general manufacturer of apparel accessories, in 1992, YKK Hong Kong acquired ESBI, a company that produces and sells plastic buttons.
In 1998, we fully funded the establishment of YKK Zipper Shenzhen Company Limited in order to service the emerging China markets more effectively.
