Our client is the EMEA division of the Velcro Companies, a technology-driven, highly innovative global provider of fastening solutions that solve problems in simple, elegant, and surprising ways for businesses and consumers around the world. The company traces its history to 1941, when Swiss engineer George de Mestral was hiking in the Alps. He noticed burrs had attached themselves to his clothing by means of hundreds of tiny “hooks”, and was inspired to create the original hook and loop fastening system. The name comes from the French words “velour” (velvet) and “crochet” (hook). Today, Velcro Companies owns over 400 active patents and numerous trademarks, including the VELCRO® mark, which is registered throughout the world.
With worldwide locations and a presence in more than twenty countries, Velcro Companies continues to innovate, creating new solutions for both business customers and individual consumers. The company produces more than 35,000 individual SKU’s providing fastening solutions across six key B2B industries: Personal Care, Transportation, Medical, Packaging, Construction, and Industrial; with Industrial covering the Apparel market, Military and Government markets, and our Distributors. From securing AstroTurf in professional football stadiums to securing Kevlar plates in military apparel, to providing secure closures for high performance apparel and shoes, organizing stereo cables and providing closures for diapers and blood pressure cuffs, VELCRO® brand products continue to provide unique solutions in everyday uses around the world. On the Consumer side of the business, VELCRO® brand products are sold globally direct-to-consumer and through retailers for hundreds of applications in the home, office, garage, and garden.
The Velcro EMEA division, with a staff of approx. 600 employees in 7 locations, is accountable for the production, sales, final customization, quality assurance and logistics of its solutions across Europe, Middle East and Africa.
