Wink company (Wilfried Jeurink KG) founded in Neuenhaus, Germany, and begins to manufacture flexible dies.
Milestones in the history of Wink
Our company has developed consistently positively since its foundation in 1989. Over the years, we have not only constantly expanded our product portfolio, but also added numerous branches and agencies to our international sales network. At the same time, we have made sustained investments in technology and personnel in order to meet the increasing demand for our premium punching tools. The acquisition of the cylinder specialist FST in 2014 and the takeover of the Jeurink Group in 2019 enabled us to further expand our expertise in the growth markets of "converting" and "packaging". The Wink Group now employs around 400 people at sites in Germany, Italy, Denmark and the USA.
