What we do:

Velcro Companies is a leader in industrial, consumer, medical, military, transportation, construction and personal care markets with our innovative fastening solutions. Our extensive product line includes traditional hook and loop fasteners in addition to woven, knot and molded products suited for a wide range of applications.

VELCRO® Brand products are used in everything from roof panels to diapers. What is today an integral part of popular culture, fashion and common home goods was invented on serendipity, inspired by a routine hike in the woods.

VELCRO® Brand fasteners have evolved extensively over the years. They accompanied the first man on the moon, securing components of Neil Armstrong’s space suit during his famous 1968 trip. Today they are found on top brands of diapers, are featured in automobiles and medical devices, and used in personal care, apparel and consumer packaging. VELCRO® Brand hook and loop secures the AstroTurf at a professional football stadium and secures KEVLAR® plates in U.S. military apparel.
