Quality

The YKK brand is associated with the word “Quality”.

Maintaining a stable quality has become the main need for global manufacturers. Production globalization makes essential the existence of a Global Quality Management System.

YKK carries out this activity through the committee called ‘Fastening Global Quality Management Committee’ (YFGC), who works on:

  • Study of world laws and regulations.
  • Unification of product specifications and creation of the YKK Standard (YFS).
  • Performing tests (test methods) and monitoring the level of product quality.

The YKK group is commited, worldwide, to manufacturing and supplying quality products for its customers. The ISO 9001 standard provides a proven framework to manage the quality that will lead to the production of higher quality products. The ISO 9001 international certification is an important tool in global product strategy and service excellence. This demonstrates YKK’s commitment to Total Quality.

YKK’s group strives to be a sustainable company with the environment, so it is a priority in business activity, mainly according to ISO 14001.

            • Identifying and controlling the environmental impact of the activities, products or services of a company.
            • Continuously improving environmental performance.
            • Implementing a systematic approach to establish environmental objectives and goals, reaching those goals and demonstrating that they have been achieved.
