LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Two brothers from Louisville started a company with almost nothing. Fifty years later, it has grown into a global corporation.

Jones Plastic and Engineering is celebrating its 50th anniversary.

Harry and Larry Jones started the company in 1961 with their wives and just one machine.

It has now grown to seven plants around the world.

The company got its start making liquor bottle caps for Brown-Forman.

Now it makes a variety of products, like lenses for stoplights, refrigerator handles and dishwasher utensil holders.

Before going into business, Harry and Larry Jones played football for the University of Kentucky.
