Easily Source your Products Globally with YKK

Product Sourcing

We know that the short product life cycle of apparel has prompted many companies to set up manufacturing operations in numerous countries in order to be closer to overseas customers and to ensure that all customers receive the same high-quality products.

YKK, with sales offices and manufacturing plants in over 70 countries and regions worldwide, is the only fastening products manufacturer that can provide service on a global basis. Our Global Marketing Group, established in 1997, enables us to quickly serve global apparel companies by supporting your program through supply chain coordination with our overseas manufacturing groups. We know that maintaining stable and consistent quality globally is one of your key concerns, which is why we have implemented the YKK Fastening Standards to provide products of the same quality level, wherever and whenever they are purchased. In addition, many of our production sites have acquired industry certifications; including ISO 9001, ISO 14001, Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 Class I, etc., including our robust global compliance of CPSIA and meeting the CPSC regulations providing relevant information on the quality of our products and fastening management system.

We also know that the apparel market is diverse, which is why YKK has been successfully responding to customer requests for product customization long before most fastening companies were in business. We know that your needs vary from segment to segment, which is why we have five R&D centers and 31 product development offices in the key locations where you do business. New offices were opened in Turkey, India, Bangladesh, Vietnam, and Brazil to respond to the increase in sewn product manufacturing operations to ASEAN and South Asian countries. In short, we go where you go.
