Company history

2024

The Kläger Group is celebrating its 75th anniversary!

Since its founding in 1949 in six garages in Augsburg, Bavaria, by Karl Kläger, the Kläger Group has continuously and innovatively evolved. It all started with the production of chemical products for the cosmetics, chemical, and agricultural sectors. Vema GmbH & Co. KG is part of this corporate group. Tradition and spirit of innovation unite three generations of family-owned businesses and approximately 300 colleagues from various companies into a strong team.

2021

Since 1 January 2021 VEMA Industrie-Verpackung GmbH & Co. KG has been operating under the new name of Vema GmbH & Co. KG, and in so doing has positioned itself considerably more broadly. This underlines the company’s transformation from straightforward contract bottling to a comprehensive full-service provider for brands and retail chains, along with the inclusion of new product concepts and types of packaging.

2020

This year marks the 50-year anniversary of Vema GmbH & Co. KG.

At the same time, we celebrate 40 years of Kläger Plastik GmbH. It is also the year in which the Key Account Management in our Hartha, responsible for the distribution of technical precision and hybrid components made of high-performance plastics, is systematically expanded.
