Components for
Complex Systems.

With almost 100 years of experience, Jaeger manufactures products based on textile and plastic components for many industrial applications. They fulfil important functions in complete systems: Reinforcing, sealing, coating, laminating, bonding and edging. We develop customized solutions – according to customer requirements from the building materials, footwear, leather goods and automotive industries.

We complete our
Customers‘ Systems.

Most of our products are characterized by the fact that they are not visible in the end product. They work. Unobtrusive. They contribute to functionality and durability. And are therefore an integral part of our customers’ business success. That’s why all our components are the main thing for us. No matter how small they may be and how minor a role they play in our customers’ overall system or product – for us, they take center stage.


As a family business, we make long-term decisions and offer our employees the confidence and stability to realize even unconventional ideas. We currently employ more than 250 people in Germany and a further 250 in our branches abroad.


Wherever our customers manufacture, Jaeger also delivers. We have branches and production facilities in many regions around the world. This ensures reliable availability of goods and logistics. Our production facilities are designed to be fail-safe and redundant. The origins of our company lie in Wuppertal and this is still the central company headquarters today. From here, we coordinate the activities of our international production facilities and sales offices.


As a company that focuses on the long term, Jaeger sees it as part of its responsibility to use resources prudently. One of our milestones: by 2030, our global production will be climate-neutral. But that is by no means everything.

Our Core Values.

Jaeger is a family company with a long-term, sustainable approach to business. Characterized 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.
