YKK AP America opened its doors to a new sales and manufacturing center in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. The facility, which will be dedicated to sales, production, distribution and logistics, will enhance the customer experience in the western region. YKK AP Inc.’s Chairman Hidemitsu Hori and YKK AP President and CEO Oliver Stepe helped mark the occasion with a visit to the facility.
