Innovative strength right from the start

From the humble beginnings to the internationally operating group of companies: Jokey was and is a family business with a pronounced customer orientation. The strong foundation for our company was laid in 1968 in the Fähnrichstüttem farmstead in the Bergisches Land region near Cologne. Josef Kemmerich starts the production of plastic buckets for the filling industry in a 200 square meter workshop with two used injection molding machines and nine employees. He names the newly founded company Jokey Plastik after the first letters of his name. Three years later, Kemmerich's sons join the company as partners. The young company grows rapidly, soon adding new production facilities. Jokey courageously continues to invest and expand - even in times when the industry is in crisis.

 

Expansion at the Sohland site

n 1989, the Berlin Wall falls, ushering in sweeping sociopolitical change. Major changes were also on the horizon at Jokey. After the fall of the Wall, our group of companies moves in giant strides towards the new federal states and Eastern Europe. Jokey takes over the Formaplast company near Dresden and modernizes the plant from the ground up. To this day, our innovative bathroom range is created here, from the idea to the finished product plus logistics. In addition, we also produce plastic packaging and technical plastic parts with our 160 employees at the Sohland site.

 

Opening up international markets.

Jokey recognizes the opportunities of globalization early on and expands into neighboring European countries starting in 2000. In the meantime, 60 percent of our products are manufactured in other European countries or exported there. Today, the Jokey Group is a leading international manufacturer in its three divisions: we are broadly positioned with our high-quality bathroom range, the development and production of plastic packaging and the production of precision components for the automotive and computer industries. The Jokey family of companies includes around 2,000 employees at 15 production sites in Germany, France, Poland, the Czech Republic, Serbia, Belarus, Turkey, Algeria, Egypt and Canada.

The environmental compatibility of the raw materials and additives we use is constantly reviewed and aligned with the latest research. The plastics we use - polypropylene, polyesterol, polyethylene and ABS - are 100 percent recyclable.

 

Our packaging made from secondary raw materials comes from the recycling of plastic waste. We thus offer manufacturers of paints, coatings, adhesives or chemical fillers ecologically safe packaging with the same technical performance profile as virgin plastics. The base material of noble gray or attractive silver can be decorated in an eye-catching way using all printing processes.

 

With our containers made of biopolymers, you improve your eco-balance and meet the demands of your environmentally conscious consumers. The containers with a proportion of renewable raw materials has the same functionality as packaging made from conventional plastic.

Our innovative product designs reduce weight and space requirements during transport - thus reducing fuel consumption and pollutant emissions. The design of the containers is optimally aligned with automated filling - making your production easier, faster, more energy-efficient and also quieter.

The careful use of nature's scarce resources determines all our entrepreneurial activities. We continuously optimize production processes, logistics and buildings in terms of energy efficiency and pollutant emissions. Plastic waste has always been recyclable at Jokey: All plastic leftovers from production are recycled. We document our commitment with the certification nach ISO 50001 and BRC Packaging.
