Sundback was born on 24 April 1880 in Sweden. Sundback married Elvira Aronson in 1909. He died on 21st June, 1954 at the age of 74 and buried in Meadville, Pennsylvania.

After he completed his studies in Sweden, he moved to Germany. There he studied at the polytechnic school. In 1905 he emigrated to the US.

His zipper advancements drew upon the work of other engineering predecessors, such as Elias Howe and Max Wolff.

Sundback created the manufacturing machine for the new zipper.

He was awarded the Gold Medal of the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences in 1951.
