Ever notice those three letters on almost every zipper? Turns out, they stand for Yoshida Kogyo Kabushikikaisha, the Japanese company that makes 90% of the world’s zippers in 206 factories in 52 countries. They even make the machines that make the zippers. Their largest factory, in Georgia, makes over 7 million zippers every day. Their goal of making the best zippers quickly made them the world leader, following the founder’s philosophy “No one prospers unless he renders benefit to others.” Come to think of it, we follow the same rule in our business. We are, however, a lot smaller.
