Trivia: What DOES the YKK on zippers mean?

I’m liberating this entertaining trivia question from Ask Yahoo!, I freely admit it up front, but it’s too good not to share. Ever looked at a zipper and seen “YKK” stamped on it? Now we know what it stands for: Yoshida Kogyo Kabushikikaisha, the name of the Japanese founder. The letters were stamped onto the company’s products and eventually became the trademark and official name of the company.
