posted in: Wood | 0

We are pleased about the exciting report on Jacob Jürgensen Wood GmbH in the August issue of the Finnish timber magazine Puumies (directly translated “Timberman”). We now learn that not only we at Jacob Jürgensen are proud of our Hanseatic trading tradition, but a solid Hansa trade is also a term in Finland: “solidia Hansa-kauppaa“.

The article describes our company history, the product range and our global activities. “At Jacob Jürgensen, we have always looked positively ahead and back in time. Our absolute strengths, both in a good and a bad economic environment, are our professional employees, our broad product range and our global network.” Rolf von Loßberg, Managing Director of JJ Wood, summarizes

A special focus in the Puumies article is, of course, on our trade with Scandinavia, where Jacob Jürgensen Wood has a tradition of more than 135 years. We are working closely together with our old and new Finnish partners and are continuously developing our product mix in Nordic spruce and pine. “Finnish wood production has a very good reputation in Germany and new innovations from Finland are always interesting on this market” says Johanna Kaitaranta, director of the Scandinavian salesteam at JJ Wood.

On Sunday, 20th August, a strong team of 13 JJ colleagues and guests stood on the starting line for the 60 km and 120 km courses at the Cyclassics in Hamburg.

The weather at start was quite cool, but after a rainy summer in Hamburg, at least dry. So we were all in a good mood and the ones heading for 120 km course were excited about the new route along the Elbdeich.

It was once again fantastic: slipstreaming, finding faster groups, keeping up with them, accelerating out of the curve –just shifting up the gear and enjoying! All team members reached safe and sound the finish line, very happy and dry.
