Production philososphy

Quality is our top priority during the manufacture of our products. Since quality assurance is best achieved with own well-trained personnel we have decided to carry out as much production steps as possible on our premises. While final production and a small mechanical production facility were already set up right from the start of JB-lighting, further departments have been founded and expanded during the course of the last 20 years. The following sides provide you with an overview of our departments, machinery and production steps. At the end of each production step, all our products have to undergo quality control and functional testing.
