Since 1942, when Gummi-Jäger, the parent company of Jäger Umwelt-Technik GmbH, was founded, application-oriented advisory service, material-oriented construction and system related development are the key for the Jäger Group’s success. Our core competence is providing unique aeration solutions for biological wastewater treatment. At the beginning of the 1970’s aeration systems no longer met the requirements of waste water treatment. Forty years ago Arnold Jäger, 2nd generation owner of Gummi-Jäger based in Hannover, Germany, developed the first rubber membrane diffuser. Since that time, the innovative rubber EPDM-membrane diffusers have saved energy and processing costs. Since 1975, Jäger has produced more than 35 million membranes and diffusers for the leading manufacturers of waste water companies all over the world.

During the last four decades, Arnold Jäger and his sons have taken out more than 30 patents on aeration technology in Europe and the USA.

Dr.-Ing. Andreas Jäger, oldest son of Arnold Jäger, joined the company in 1995. Under his leadership the development team of the Jäger Group perpetually improved the aeration technology. In order to meet the growing importance in the field of aeration systems, all German Jäger activities concerning waste water treatment have been transferred to Jäger Umwelt-Technik GmbH in 2007.

At the same time, Jäger’s American  business has been sold to Claudius Jäger and is today branded as Gummi-Jaeger Aeration. The product portfolio of Jäger Umwelt-Technik GmbH (Hannover, Germany) and Gummi-Jaeger Aeration Inc. (Longmont, USA) is based on their mutual heritage up to 2007. Since then both companies have individually developed specific products for their markets / customers.

Therefore, nowadays the product lines may look similar, but bear significant technical differences.

In 2005 Jäger complemented its diffuser business with the Cleartec Biotextiles technology. Introducing the innovativ fixed film process into the global marketplace Jäger Umwelt-Technik GmbH has developed from a component supplier into a true process company.

Jäger-Umwelt-Technik GmbH is formulating and processing all rubber compounds in house in its own mixing facility. We produce the best suited membrane materials for municipal and industrial applications based on our 40 years experience.

All Jäger Umwelt-Technik GmbH products are „Made in Germany” and are based on constant innovation by German engineering.
