Fujian SBS Zipper Science and
Technology Co. Ltd
Fujian SBS is China's largest zipper
manufacturer, producing about 948 million meters
each year. The company has been producing zippers
for more than 20 years, and its in-house SBS brand
is widely recognized across the country.
Seventy percent of the company's shipments carry
the SBS label, and the rest are produced for OEM
clients such as Decathlon, adidas, Disney and Kappa.
The ISO 9002 and ISO 14000-certified company has
production bases in Quanzhou and Shanghai, and
exports to more than 40 countries worldwide. The
United States absorbs 30 percent of zipper exports,
the European Union 26 percent and the rest are
shipped to countries in Asia and the Middle East.
Fujian SBS has a vertically integrated facility
where nearly all production processes from mold
development to monofilamenting, diecasting,
painting, electroplating, tape weaving, stitching,
bleaching and dyeing are done.
Fujian SBS exports finished zippers and chains, and
buyer-specified sliders and accessories. The zippers
are used for garments, outdoor equipment, bags,
footwear and home furnishing.
The company produces all zipper types, nylon
accounting for the bulk of exports with a 53 percent
share. Metal zippers come second with 26 percent,
and plastic zippers make up 21 percent.
Prices depend on the size, materials and length.
Metal types are the most expensive, and nylon
versions are the cheapest.
Zipper tapes are woven from nylon, cotton and
polyester using yarns sourced from Taiwan and Hong
Kong. For nylon zippers, some monofilaments are made
in-house, but most are imported from Taiwan. The
teeth of metal versions are made from copper, nickel
and brass, and these are imported from South Korea,
because they are of better quality.
Fujian SBS has more than 5,000 automatic-production
machines capable of producing 83 million meters of
zippers monthly. Its production area is divided into
die-casting, nylon, plastic and finished zipper
sections with workshops for mold making, dyeing,
bleaching and electroplating.
The Global Sources team toured the 150,000sqm
Quanzhou plant, which is equipped with 150
die-casting machines of different capacities, used
in the production of pull tabs, sliders and boxes.
There are 2,000 automatic weaving machines imported
from Taiwan and the EU, along with hundreds of
zipper finishing machines for gapping, stripping,
trimming, cutting and top/bottom stop setting.
