Paper Workshop for our Trainees

posted in: General | 0

On Tuesday, September 6, 2022, the Jacob Jürgensen Paper Workshop was opened by Marit Ernst with a theoretical part on the history of paper.

You might think that the history of paper began in Egypt, where the ancient Egyptians created papyrus and parchment. However, the real beginning of paper comes from China. From there, the Chinese exported the newly invented creation around the world. Many countries have just as many different standards regarding the color that newsprint should have; in Asia, for example, a pure white paper is considered particularly valuable.

After the theory it was finally time for us trainees to get down to practical work. We were allowed to plunge into the paper hustle and bustle to follow the process pf paper production from start to finish ourselves.

We are pleased to announce that Paul Dmitrow has been part of our accounting team since last fall. The trained banker has already gained a lot of experience in financial accounting in a foreign trade company. The Berliner moved to northern Germany because of love. Besides reading and sports, quizzing is one of his passions. He not only enriches our team but also our language diversity through his basic knowledge of Chinese.

We started the new year with Boris Girard. Originally from North Rhine-Westphalia, the trained wholesale and export merchant has spent most of his professional career in New Zealand (16 years). There he was initially responsible for the export of construction timber and ultimately for the import and distribution of wood flooring. Almost two years ago, he and his family moved back to Germany, and we are very happy to know that a “kiwi” isnow part of Team Nordic at JJ.

Many people, organisations and companies are supporting as much as they can – like one of our largest suppliers.

Total makeover – a new look for our office

posted in: General | 0

Finally, we can happily say: rebuilding the office while remaining at service demanded a lot from everyone, but the result was worth the effort.

After a planning period of two years and a rebuilding period of 12 months, divided into three phases, we were finally able to move into the last offices.  The complete redesign was a result of the previous total office gutting.

Extreme Makeover

We did not only increase our office area enormously. Modern interiors such as partitions, which offer opportunities for retreat and concentrated work, as well as glass elements, which provide light and transparency, are a significant component of the optical change. The offices are now equipped with new lighting technology and elements for optimized room acoustics. Height-adjustable desks also offer perfect comfort for individual working. All this enables our employees to achieve nearly ideal and modern working conditions.
