Milestones

50 years of dynamism, growth and innovative strength.

It all began in 1968, in Fähnrichstüttem near Wipperfürth in the Bergisches Land: Josef Kemmerich started producing plastic buckets for the filling industry in a workshop just 200 m2 in size with two second-hand injection moulding machines and nine employees. He named the newly established company "Jokey Plastik" after the first letters of his name. Three years later, his sons joined him as partners in the company. The young firm grew rapidly, quickly adding new production sites. Jokey invested and expanded. Today the Jokey Group, with 15 plants in 12 countries and sales subsidiaries on all continents, is one of the international market leaders in the packaging industry. Jokey has won five awards from the European Commission as one of the 500 European companies with the strongest growth. In 2002 and 2009 Jokey was one of the finalists in the “Entrepreneur of the Year” competition.
