Event Details

 

 
DUE TO LIMITED AVAILABLITY THIS TOUR IS FOR GMA MEMBERS ONLY
 

YKK has developed and implemented a manufacturing system that’s truly unique called “total vertically integrated manufacturing system”.  This method requires YKK to produce everything, from raw materials and machines to finished goods in-house. This manufacturing process requires many plants and at their Macon foundry they make their own brass from zinc and copper to produce zippers, hook & loop fasteners, plastic buckles, snaps and buttons. Attendees will see how how zippers are made and assembled for products used in the apparel, automotive, and space industries.
