Kliklok LLC was established in 1947, after developing the first locking corner tab for folding cartons and a machine to automatically form the cartons. The locking tabs clicked when they snapped into place and were called “Klik-Loks”. The Dan Woodman Company, an engineering firm, was founded even earlier. In 1947, it developed the Air Weigh System in collaboration with Herman Lay (founder of Lay’s Potato Chips). It was the first machine to automatically weigh and bag potato chips.
Kliklok purchased the Woodman Company in the late 1960s, and eventually moved to the Woodman Company's location in Decatur, GA. Syntegon acquired Kliklok-Woodman in December 2015.
