YKK AP Wins 2023 Window + Door Awards for Most Innovative Manufacturing Practice

ATLANTA, GA. (Dec. 20, 2023) YKK AP America today announced it took home a 2023 Window + Door Award for Most Innovative Manufacturing Practice. The 2023 Window + Door Award winners represent a year of hard work in creating a variety of products that meet customer needs.

YKK AP is the only manufacturer that produces its own vinyl resins for extrusion – and it does so with an integrated production system with zero-waste. Additionally, YKK AP takes the meaning of innovation by extending beyond “what” it manufactures to “how” it manufactures it. It uses zero-emission initiatives, energy-efficient product transport and increased recycling rates, for example, to strive for the most sustainable development possible. YKK AP works to perpetually minimize its carbon dioxide emissions across manufacturing, sales and distribution processes. It also actively invests in energy-saving technology and works to cut the amount of energy used per-unit weight of products shipped.

YKK AP’s ability to custom extrude its own vinyl profiles with polyvinyl chloride, or PVC, enables YKK AP to provide exact specifications for vinyl windows and doors, along with high-performance and quality. It also ensures improved energy efficiency and long-term durability. These positive steps toward sustainable manufacturing help us balance ecology and economy—improving the environment and society over the long term.
