Kezzler innovation: It all started with a bolt
In 1989, a fatal plane crash outside of Denmark killed all on board. The cause: counterfeit bolts that could only bear about 60% of their intended breaking strength. From this tragedy, Kezzler was born. When the founder of Kezzler Magnar Løken read about this preventable accident, he was determined to find a solution to ensure that such a tragedy would never happen again.
Ahead of his time applying digitization and serialization technology to the problem, his ideas from 2001 form the foundation of the company and still drive Kezzler innovation today. By placing a unique code on each individual product, it is possible to trace each product back to its origins and to provide proof of authenticity.
With a background in cryptology, Magnar came up with a system where it was not necessary to store the code. Secure, infinitely scalable and suited to high-volume products, the Kezzler Connected Products Platform has wide-ranging applications across industries.
