From living spaces to urban spaces.
YKK AP has kept pace with the times and leads the way into the future.



01. Window business

Typically, windows are assembled and sold at shops that deal in building materials, using frames and glass that are supplied by different manufacturers. But these days, customers want to choose their windows. In developing the APW brand, YKK AP changed the thinking that prevailed in window design. Our APW windows are a cut above in terms of function, performance and design. To guarantee that performance, we have operated on a novel business model since 2006, one in which APW windows are manufactured in our own strictly controlled plants with the glass built in.
APW was the first window brand created in Japan. APW windows are high performance products designed with users in mind, and they can help cut CO2 emissions to benefit the environment. YKK AP will work to increase the market share of the APW brand and expand our window business as we help improve the quality of homes.
