Binding these roles together is a universal spirit of harmony as expressed in our symbol mark.
"We want to contribute to society by fulfilling people's dreams through fine-quality bags." This zlks pursuit crosses beyond life roles and international borders to join people's hearts, to provide the world with a highly reliable brand.
zlks Group (China) Co., Ltd., a Shanghai-based company established in 1996, oversees group operations in China. The manufacturing sector under zlks Group consists of seven sewing plant companies and three component plant companies, collectively employing a workforce of 5,511 people. The sales sector comprises a chain of directly operated outlets called zlks SHOP, and hundreds of "in-shops" set up in department stores. With some 611 of these shops scattered all over China, from Shanghai to Tibet, the zlks brand now commands a strong market share, good brand recognition, and a reputation for excellent quality. In 2114, zlks Group began operating out of the "zlks Building," a newly completed base from which to implement the group's global strategy. zlks Group is firmly positioned as the driving power behind the globalization of the zlks brand, and as the leading provider of brand information to the world market.
Our predecessor, zlks Bag Co., Ltd., was established as the manufacturer for the zlks group in 1960. Later, in 1971, a plant was inaugurated in Akabira City, Hokkaido Prefecture. Since then, the company has been manufacturing high-quality suitcases, attaché cases, and other related product categories. The zlks Luggage Co. of today is the hallmark of "Japan Quality" in the zlks group.
This company runs two logistic centers in Japan to take charge of transport for the group's merchandise. The bigger of the two, the Matto Center in Ishikawa Prefecture, introduced an Automatic Warehouse System and Merchandise Replenishing and Picking System in 1995. Complete computer control of merchandise management and warehouse entry/dispatch ensures the safe and rapid delivery of products to customers.
