The reliable partner for the control of industrial processes

JUMO SPAIN

JUMO SPAIN is a world leader in its sector and its products have been synonymous with quality assurance for more than 50 years. The desire to satisfy the customer has driven the continuous innovation and search for solutions to the problems of measurement and regulation in industrial processes, which has resulted in an extensive manufacturing program. In addition, the company's long experience in the market has allowed it to evolve from simple glass thermometers with electrical contacts to today's microprocessor-based instrumentation, configurable from a remote location via the Internet.

JUMO CONTROL, S.A.

In February 1987, the company M.K. JUCHHEIM GmbH & Co. from Fulda (Germany), after having been represented by several Spanish companies and in its desire to strengthen the contact with its customers, establishes in Madrid the company JUMO SERCON, S.A., which will not be operative until two years later. After five years of activity, a reorganization is carried out with the improvement of the machinery in the temperature probe manufacturing workshop and the opening of its own offices in Barcelona. In 1999 and after a new restructuring of the company, it is renamed JUMO CONTROL, S.A., the offices and workshops in Madrid are moved to new facilities and ISO 9002 certification is obtained both for the manufacture of probes in Madrid and for the technical assistance and repair of instruments from Barcelona.



STRATEGY

The Company's strategy is oriented towards customer satisfaction. In order to achieve this goal, it has been structured by establishing for each industrial sector a person in charge of providing all the necessary technical support in the application of JUMO products. On the other hand, the implementation of the ISO 9002 standard has shown the commitment of the Management in the continuous improvement of the quality of the products manufactured by JUMO CONTROL, S.A. and in the service offered to its customers. To fulfill this commitment, a significant investment has been made in computer equipment and state-of-the-art machinery. And with the support of the parent company in Germany, a system of continuous staff training has been established, updating their knowledge in the most modern and innovative industrial technologies.


FUTURE EVOLUTION

After more than fifty years of presence in the market, with a team of more than 2,200 employees worldwide, with an extensive short- and medium-term investment plan both at the headquarters and in the various subsidiaries, plus an ambitious program of research into new processes and the development of new equipment, we can only hope for a promising future. The subsidiary in Spain also participates in data collection and analysis of market trends. This joint task allows an easier approach to customer needs and thus a quicker reaction to the continuous new demands of the industry.


JUMO FROM ITS BEGINNINGS

More than 70 years of sensor expertise

Moritz Kurt Juchheim founds today's JUMO GmbH & Co. KG and starts manufacturing glass and contact thermometers with 6 employees in a production area of 350 m². He was born on July 4, 1910 in Ilmenau (Thuringia), where his father already manufactured thermometers. From the very beginning, Moritz Kurt Juchheim focused on instruments of special quality and the best customer service. The name JUMO is derived from the initials of the company founder. Join us on a journey back in time through the touching history of our company.

From glass thermometer to sensor: from Fulda to Europe

1949-1979

Even before the foundation of two German states, the thermometer factory "M.K. Juchheim" is founded in Fulda and exhibits at the Hanover Fair in 1949. Konrad Adenauer becomes Federal Chancellor and the Fulda company also flourishes in the years of the economic miracle. By 1952 it had grown from 6 to 100 employees, and by 1970 this figure had even increased tenfold. The production area also grew from 350 to 12,000 m².

In 1966, the production of platinum crystal sensors began and electronically based measuring and control devices were added to the range. While the world mourns the dissolution of the Beatles, Moritz Juchheim founds the first subsidiary in Belgium in 1971, marking the start of internationalization. Things also progressed technically: in 1978, JUMO was the first company to use processors in control technology.

New developments up to the robot

1980-1989

While Erno Rubik's "Rubik's Cube" becomes a cult, JUMO continues to develop its service area and offers these for metal processing and electronic assemblies for external customers for the first time. The area of liquid analysis is also expanded.

And just as Germany is cheering on 17-year-old tennis talent Boris Becker, Peter Juchheim, eldest son of company founder Moritz and managing director alongside him since 1965, passes away in 1985. His younger brother and current Managing Director Dipl.-Ing. Bernhard Juchheim takes his place. In 1989, the year of the fall of the Berlin Wall, JUMO also achieves a breakthrough: robots are used in temperature sensing for the first time.

Crecimiento mundial gracias a la alta tecnología

1990-1999

The federal government moves from Bonn to the old and at the same time new capital, Berlin, and the JUMO development department moves into a new building. Over the years, this produces high-tech devices, process control systems, intelligent transmitters, bus technology and state-of-the-art visualization software. This is how the JUMO mTRON automation system came onto the market in 1997.

After the founding of the JUMO training center in 1995, the Juchheim family has to come to terms with another loss: in 1996, the company founder, Moritz Juchheim, passes away.

Automation systems, new target groups and new markets

2000-2009

For JUMO, the new millennium does not begin with a slump, but with a record: for the first time, the company achieves a turnover of more than 100 million euros. When the European currency is also introduced as cash in 2002, JUMO opens the new sales and production building for the temperature sensor technology product line with a total area of 4,680 m² on the Eisweiher industrial estate.

In 2003, the brand name JUMO becomes the company name and Dipl.-Kfm. Michael Juchheim becomes managing director together with his father Bernhard. JUMO grows in the Asian and Eastern European markets and is able to open up new target groups with complete automation systems.

 

 

 

Plastics and excellent growth

2010-2020

As the decade draws to a close, JUMO employs more than 2,000 people worldwide and continues to expand. The certification of the DKD laboratory by Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH (DAkkS) opens up new services. In 2012, the new incoming goods logistics center is opened and in 2013, a 100,000 m² site is acquired for a new sensor production facility.

In 2016, JUMO makes its only acquisition to date and takes over PGT Thermprozesstechnik GmbH. The company specializes in the production of innovative plastic temperature sensors and is a long-standing system partner of JUMO. JUMO has received several awards for above-average growth and as an exemplary employer.

In 2020, Dimitrios Charisiadis is appointed as the third Managing Director. He is responsible for "Sales, Development and Production". Bernhard Juchheim will be responsible for "Human Resources" and Michael Juchheim for "IT and Finance".
