We’re proud that many of our products, such as the CLIP & CLOSE fresh food container and the SAMBA insulated jug, are produced at our headquarters in Emsdetten. That means that production is set in motion and logistics handled right next to the offices where a product is developed.
We’re equally proud to operate our own production facility in Taicang, where we manufacture successful products such as our TRAVEL MUG insulated cup. Having our own production facility gives us the security of being able to consistently meet our high quality standards.
