Our samples for the young

posted in: General | 0

A teacher from a district school in the north of Hamburg approached us with a request for the subject ‘work science’. On the subject of ‘Wood and its properties’, she wanted to give the students an understanding of wood as a raw material.

We were happy to help out with samples, because holding something in your hands is more exciting and memorable than theory. Our samples ranged from solid wood to parquet sections and plywood. They were not just helpful for class. They were also examined, studied, and enthusiastically scrutinized in the work training seminar at the State Institute for Teacher Education and School Development (LI).

140 years – 140 trees

posted in: General | 0

On December 9, 2022 we celebrated our company’s 140th anniversary! For this anniversary we have thought of something special: we are planting trees!

Through the Finnish organization “TreeBuddy”, which is a tree planting and long-term tree care service, we will plant 140 mangrove trees (Rhizophora mangle) on the Natuna Islands in Indonesia, whose care is guaranteed through “TreeBuddy” for the next decades.

The mangrove tree is a super tree for climate and biodiversity. They provide shelter and food for kekah natuna monkeys (Presbytis natunae), an endangered species found only in the Natuna Islands. Thus, we can not only help save this rare species and contribute to biodiversity, but also contribute to the fight against climate change and to global reforestation.

Wood seminar in Tannenfelde, Aukrug

A report by Charlotte Junge

On November 1 and 2, 2022, we first-year trainees took part in the wood seminar in Tannenfelde. Surrounded by the forest, we got into the mood for wood as soon as we arrived.

The main topics of the seminar were the wood properties of softwood and hardwood. We investigated many different varieties, especially the wood moisture and density. We were even allowed to measure the wood moisture ourselves on a fresh piece of beech. Furthermore, we also learned a lot about the products made from wood. One example is chipboard: it exists once asraw chipboard and e.g. chipboard with veneer.

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.
