NEW YORK, Sep 7, 2008 / FW/ — A dress made of zippers; it was a natural choice for YKK, the world’s largest zipper company and also a manufacturer of other fastening products.
The initials YKK stood for Yoshida K?gy? Kabushiki-kaisha was founded in 1934 by Tadao Yoshida. Since its inception, YKK had been in the forefront of innovations in its field. So, it is not surprising that YKK claims to be the first zipper company to promote environmental protection measures.
YKK developed a line of environmentally friendly zippers, following the company’s philosophy “The Cycle of Goodness” which means that one prospers when the person renders benefit to others.
