Nifco's History

Nifco was founded in 1967 in order to manufacture and sell plastic fasteners for industrial purposes.
The current name Nifco is the acronym of the original company name "Nippon Industrial Fastener Corporation".

Plastic fasteners are for connecting, building, and tying. Nifco delivered light, non-rusting, easy-to-handle products to Japanese industries.
Our plastic fasteners greatly contributed towards power saving and cost saving in manufacturing processes, and they started to be deployed on automobiles as the automotive industry prospered.
Today, Nifco has the largest market share in the Japanese automotive industry.

Nifco's success extended beyond plastic fasteners.
Nifco was the first in the world to develop a mini-damper, and other products appeared one after another to demonstrate our unique ideas, such as the push latch that spread the concept of "push-open" all over the world, and parts for fuel tanks to comply with environmental regulations.
Nifco adds various ideas to plastic to increase functionality. Our products are at work in every aspect of living space as well as in automobiles.

Nifco is the acronym of the original company name
Nippon Industrial Fastener Corporation.

We will take further steps forward by following this philosophy.
We have reorganized technical branches in Japan into two (east and west) in order to facilitate even more sophisticated technical development.
