60 Years of Evolution and Innovation
Zippercord was established in Bethlehem, PA as a supplier of twisted cord to the US zipper manufacturing industry. As the complexion and requirements of domestic manufacturing evolved, Zippercord adapted by becoming a producer of technical fiber to mostly industrial applications. The company now services industries as diverse as fire safety, military, aerospace, composites, geotextiles, agricultural, oil/gas exploration, lifting apparatus, and many others. The company’s products are currently being distributed throughout North America, Europe, and Asia. Zippercord continues to concentrate on technical applications while maintaining a focus on servicing clients requiring short lead times.
