Commemoration of 4 important Jola personalities

So that they are not forgotten, in 2022, on the occasion of the 70th company anniversary, Jola will remember 4 people who decisively shaped the company.

In the 70th anniversary year, the past is honored at Jola Spezialschalter. The company emerged in the 1950s from the Gebrüder Haas (Haas Brothers) cloth factory in Lambrecht as a tiny electrical engineering company and over the years has developed into a permanent fixture in measurement and control technology.

On behalf of all those people who have advanced the company, four important persons will be remembered. On the anniversary of their respective death, a small commemoration ceremony will be held in the inner courtyard shortly before the lunch break, at which the management will celebrate their lives and work. In the months of May, July, November and January corresponding videos will be published on “Inside Jola”.
