Quality and expertise
Our desire for quality and experience is an ongoing process. It begins with simple things such as cleanliness and order – and ends with the continual optimisation of the technical and personal skills of each and every employee, manager and shareholder.
As a family-owned company, we recognise our responsibility. We pursue a sustainable, long-term strategy. We ensure maximum environmental sustainability for our products and their manufacture. We accept responsibility for the well-being of our employees and support the regions in which they live. We value integrity and we believe in fair market competition.
It all began in 1968 in Fähnrichstüttem bei Wipperfürth, in Bergisches Land: Josef Kemmerich started the production of plastic buckets for the filling industry in a 200 metre square factory with two second-hand injection machines and nine employees. He named the company "Jokey Plastik" after the first letters of his names. Three years later his sons, Karl-Heinz, Egon, Werner and Herbert, came on board. The new company grew rapidly. Jokey expanded throughout Germany and abroad and brought successful products such as the Jokey-Euro-Tainer to the market. Today, the Jokey Group is an international market leader in the packaging industry.
