The JOB Group was founded by Dipl.-Ing. Eduard J. Job. Back in 1958, Eduard J. Job began his studies at the renowned “Massachusetts Institute of Technology” in the USA and thus began his path into fire protection technology. As a member of the management team at what is now the company “Minimax”, Eduard J. Job set up a new electronics division in 1968 for the development, production, and sales of fire detectors. Under his leadership, Hartwig O. Beyersdorf and a group of creative engineers developed a new type of electronic fire detector series that used the field effect transistor, which was revolutionary for this purpose on the European market at the time. At this time, Mr. Job was already supporting the development of glass products for thermal triggering. In 1971, based on an idea for producing glass products, he founded his own company, JOB GmbH, in Ahrensburg near Hamburg, which he led and shaped with drive and inventiveness until his death in 2009.
With ever new technical innovations and new patented developments every year, the company’s economic success also grew steadily. Today the JOB Group employs over 180 people worldwide. Alone THERMO BULBS, thermally triggered glass ampoules, are used in more than 2,000,000,000 sprinklers on all continents and play a key role in preventing the spread of fires and thus protecting human lives and property.
