Who We Are

Something of an Anomaly.

We are a unique combination of legacy and innovation. A family-owned and operated business since 1936, we’ve done something few companies have—survived and thrived. We’re still here because of our satisfied customers and empowered employees. Our staying power is a testament to the quality of our zippers, and so much more.

Our zippers speak to who we are as a business and represent our values, integrity and creativity.

We are a global supplier and our reach is worldwide. With offices and factories around the world, we are able to engineer and manufacture from multiple regions, without ever compromising quality or service.

We are big enough to handle the world’s largest brands, but small enough to provide personalized customer service. Details make the difference and we are obsessed with details.

Our Formula for Success.


By controlling every step in manufacturing, we provide the highest quality product on the market.
