The cycle of goodness

Created by YKK company founder Tadao Yoshida, the “cycle of good” describes the corporate philosophy of shared benefits. It is based on the conviction that no one can be successful without allowing others to share in their success. With this in mind, YKK STOCKO contributes to the growth of its customers with its high-quality products and services.

In line with the cycle of goodness, YKK President Tadahiro Yoshida coined the management principle that YKK strives for a high corporate standard and value. The aim behind this is to manufacture only perfect, high-quality products from which the end product can also benefit.

Fair and balanced cooperation

Behind these management principles is the vision of fair and balanced cooperation.
This applies to all operational and entrepreneurial activities within the YKK GROUP, which are directed towards one goal: to offer customers all over the world quality and service at the highest level.
It is also one of the fundamental management principles of all YKK GROUP companies to contribute to the growth of a sustainable society.
