Innovation out of tradition

for over 72 years

For over 70 years, people have been at the centre of our activities. It is important to protect their lives and material assets and to ensure the sustainable success of our company. To achieve this, we build on a consistent value system:

Premium quality

Fire extinguishers are safety products - lifesavers that matter in an emergency. To ensure this, we rely on high quality standards, stringent quality controls and continuous process optimisation. Systematic elimination of discrepancies, high traceability, fast delivery and 100% customer satisfaction are the top priorities of our quality policy.

Quality in the development phase

In extensive trials, new developments are systematically taken from the design stage through the test stage to carefully planned prototypes. Extensive technical feasibility tests during the planning and production phase as well as special tests and prototype deployments are among the decisive quality measures here. As a result, we follow the modular principle in order to keep our customers' maintenance costs and spare parts inventories as low as possible.

Quality checks right from the start

We select our raw materials with the utmost care according to clearly defined quality parameters. We do not accept any price reductions for deliveries of substandard quality. During production, samples are continuously taken and tested according to an elaborate quality assurance plan.

Quality management in the company

A strict control system ensures that quality issues are detected at an early stage. Jockel attaches great importance to trained employees. Specific development measures are regularly carried out to maintain and promote professional competence. With strategic purchasing and strict dispatching criteria, we can ensure that the goods reach the customer quickly.

Partnership

Through close dialogue with our customers and suppliers, we form long-term partnerships characterised by reliability, credibility and mutual trust. As a supplier to our customers, we support them in finding the optimal solution for the end customer from industry, trade or the private individuals. We are passionate about individual client solutions or special customised designs, and if need be, we can deliver them overnight.

Innovation

We take the initiative and realise ideas that take our clients further. What risks will our customers face tomorrow? Which substances will have to be eliminated in the future? How do we reconcile extinguishing and environmental protection? The challenges to fire protection in industry, in road traffic or at home are becoming ever greater in the course of technological progress. We are faced with new tasks. We are proactively adapting to a constantly changing world.

 

Our innovative force is fed by both internal and external know-how. Internally, it is our employees who work every day to develop more powerful, more application-friendly or more environmentally friendly products. Externally, we have a network of partners which we are constantly expanding. This enables us to recognise trends at an early stage and take them into account in our work.

Location

We are at home in Germany - more precisely in Remscheid in the Bergisches Land. This region on the Rhine, Ruhr and Wupper, with the city triangle of Wuppertal, Solingen and Remscheid, impresses with its unique landscape. Hills and narrow valleys, dams, rivers and streams, historic buildings and picturesque town centres with unique architecture. We produce here because of our tradition.

 

Expanding and promoting this regional market position and thus sustainably securing Germany as a business location means entrepreneurial courage, especially for small and medium-sized companies. We want to continue to promote our region and to constantly secure and create jobs in the future. It is important to us to give Germany a perspective, to take responsibility for employees and to give the next generation a future. We rely on Made in Germany, because this seal still stands for ultimate excellence.

Beyond the fire extinguishersISO 14001:2015 certified company

Economical use of paper, energy-conscious production and reduced use of packaging materials are something we consider a given. We also try to apply these standards to our products. In addition to fire protection requirements for greater extinguishing performance, environmental compatibility and disposal are also central focal points of the 21st century. 

Because safety demands quality.

We make no compromises when it comes to quality. We produce in Remscheid. In the middle of Germany. Our location enables us to maintain a high level of quality. High quality standards, consistent quality controls and continuous process optimisation as well as highly trained specialists ensure that we offer high-quality security products. Each of our employees and each individual production step is part of a defined quality management system. Our certification according to DIN EN ISO 9001 signals this to the outside world.


In addition, our location enables us to maintain a constant exchange with our customers in order to develop customised solutions. In this way, we can secure and create jobs in the long term. We are proud of this and express our "We in Germany" location statement with our factory seal.
