Let's Return to Our Roots
It all began in 1954 in Yakima, Washington, where Floyd Paxton was supplying nailing machines to the Washington state apple industry. Years later, when apple distribution moved from boxes, to plastic bags, farmers came to Floyd for help. And so, the bag closure was born. Floyd called it Kwik Lok, and it would quickly become the preferred method for keeping bags of Washington State apples safe and fresh.
Floyd’s son Jerre then took Kwik Lok global. Under his leadership, Kwik Lok refined the technology of the closure system, built six factories, and produced billions of closures each year to help keep all types of food as fresh and secure as possible. Bread, noodles, apples, flat breads, spices, you get the idea.
In 2018, it was Jerre’s three daughters, the third generation of Paxton leadership, who made sustainability and corporate responsibility a priority. Kwik Lok had always been a very family-oriented company with a lot of love and respect between employees and owners. Stephanie, Kimberly, and Melissa took that dedication, that loyalty, and expanded it to include our local communities, our global community, and our planet.
But what really makes our closures so special?
We’re a market leader in automated, consumer-product closure systems that improve the lives and protect the health of millions of people and families throughout the world. Our systems include recyclable, reusable closures and highly reliable closing machines with versatile label printers that are simple to run.
Kwik Lok closures are a low-cost way to protect food and other consumer products – from a few ounces up to 90 lbs. They feature easy reclosing that lengthens useful product life and reduces waste. Kwik Lok closures are 100% traceable, reusable and recyclable.
