Greetings

Welcome to KFFIC!

It has been almost 60 years since the fastener industry started to manufacture its products in Korea. With a pioneering spirit in this unexplored field, we have scored many achievements: apporximately 500 domestic manufacturers; a production output of 3.7 billion US dollars and about 15,000 workers. We believe that this can be attributed to the efforts and passion of all those involved in the fastener industry, the active and consistent assistance provided by the relevant agencies, and overseas partners’ support for the Korean fastener industry. We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude for your support.

With the recent major changes in the automobile industry, and the unprecedented “Covid-19”crisis, the fastener industry faces difficult challenges at home and abroad. However, in the past, Korea successfully overcame both the financial crisis in 1997 and the global financial crisis in 2008 in a wise manner. If we gather our wisdom and move forward together, we are confident that Korea will again overcome this dire situation and make big strides forward in future.

We are dedicated to expanding overseas networking in the fastener industry to enhance trade and to develop new products, including steel grade with new materials, to provide high-quality fastener products across the world, while coming up with mutual support measures for overcoming difficulties. We seek to play a pivotal role in the development of the global fastener industry by systematically utilizing the 4th Industrial Revolution, Smart Factory, and the skilled and sophisticated human resources that we have put our efforts into developing over the past 60 years.

In response, we will do our best to provide support to and cooperation with member companies. Through such efforts, we will remain committed to promoting change and innovation, making it possible to maintain good relations with major players in the global fastener industry.


Thank you!

KFFIC is the official organization serving the South Korean Fastener Industry.
