150 years of competence in the lighting industry
BJB has existed as a family business for over 150 years. What began with kerosene lamps led over the electrical bridge to light (lamp base and sockets) to today’s product portfolio: “Technology for Light”: From LED connection and fastening systems and LED connection and mounting terminals, to optics and lighting solutions for the household appliance industry ( “Light for Appliances”). With an export share of 80%, BJB is also considered a Hidden Global Champion.
Through new patent and utility model applications in 2020, the fundamental realignment and adaptation of the business model was successfully completed. Philipp Henrici is also positive with regard to significant sales increases in the company.
