Company history


The Kläger Group is celebrating its 75th anniversary!

Founded by Karl Kläger in 1949 in six garages in Augsburg, Bavaria, the company has steadily and innovatively grown ever since. It all started with the production of chemical products for the cosmetics, chemical, and agricultural sectors. Today, tradition and innovation unite three generations of the family business and around 300 colleagues from various companies into a strong team.


Completion & Commissioning of the Kläger Group Energy Park

The largest individual project in the history of the Kläger Group was completed in early 2024. With the construction of this innovative energy park, the company is positioning itself for a sustainable and environmentally conscious future. This investment in renewable energy sources will not only significantly reduce the ecological footprint but also ensure the long-term viability of the company’s site in Hartha, Saxony.


Installation of a photovoltaic system as part of the comprehensive energy measures at Kläger Group at the Neusäß site. In the future, we will cover approximately 25 to 35% of our required energy for the production process ourselves.


Kläger Plastik in Hartha gets its own company name.

The site becomes Kläger SPC GmbH & Co. KG (SPC stands for Smart Performance Components). This new company foundation with its own company name sharpens the profile of the Hartha site and names the services and competences of the plant.


Relaunch of the Vema logo with an additional brand claim.

As a full-service partner, Vema is more than just a pure provider of filling aerosols. With the claim “beyond filling“, we are positioning our core competencies and comprehensive services more precisely in the future.


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.
