Components for complex systems.

Building. Future.

With more than 95 years of experience, Jaeger manufactures products based on textile and synthetic components for a wide range of industrial applications. These products perform key functions within entire systems: reinforcing, sealing, coating, laminating, cementing and binding. We develop individual solutions to customer requirements in the construction material, shoe, leather goods and automotive industries. By means of ongoing development, Jaeger is also continually tapping new potentials for applications in the area of technology and engineering.

Integrated solutions
Regardless of whether components for sealing buildings or reinforcing shoe uppers are concerned, most of our products are characterised by the fact that they are not visible in the end product. They work unobtrusively yet make an important contribution to the functionality and durability of modern brand products, and are therefore an important part of our customers’ company success.

All of our components and services are therefore our primary consideration. However small they might be, perhaps only comprising a tiny part of the overall system or product, they are the most important thing to us. This is where our expertise lies.

Success through reliability

The tradition of a long-standing company is always present at Jaeger. It characterises the way we see ourselves. A stable commercial basis is combined with our policy of sustainable business management and responsibility. For the future of our environment and the future of our customers. And finally, another main feature is denoted by a fair amount of reserve. This goes well with our reputation as a specialised supplier of components and with the confidence placed in us by our customers.

Values

Jaeger is a family company with a long-term, sustainable approach to business. Characterised by trust, responsibility, reliability, openness and honesty – towards our employees, customers and suppliers. And towards the environment. These are values which we consider important. They determine the development, production and sale of our products. And we gladly comply with this obligation in all respects. Our claim to be an impulse provider requires a high degree of performance orientation and willingness to change.

A further pillar of our company’s philosophy is a sound financial basis. This makes us independent.

History

The company was founded in the year 1924 by Johannes Jaeger and his brother Hermann as a conventional weaving mill that manufactured silk tapes and hat-bands. The company’s products were in perfect accord with the fashion trends at the time. In the “Roaring Twenties” art and culture experienced an upswing. Social life was exuberant, and decorative ribbons were an indispensable fashion accessory. In the 1950s, the company expanded its range of products to include technical textiles. Over the decades Jaeger has been able to increase its know-how to every aspect when it comes to the production of functionally-oriented textile products.
