Jobachem auf der American Coating Show

The President of the Federal State Lower Saxony has visited the company Jobachem

The President of the Federal State Lower Saxony has visited the company Jobachem on May 5th, 2017. In talks with the management of the company the distinguished visitor received information about the operational performance of the family held enterprise but also got a smell about challenges to be solved.

Dr. Jens-Uwe Kahl, Managing Director, introduced the company and MP Weil showed great interest in the development of the company. Jobachem is an international service provider for the chemical industry and distributes among others plasticizer, UV-filters, UV-curing items and flavour and fragrances. Founded in 1992 the principle office has been established in Dassel shortly afterwards.

The company mainly imports chemicals from Asia via Hamburg harbour and many clients are located in the South or in other European countries. Dassel as headquarters was a correct decision.

The company employs currently 40 people there upon 35 at the headquarters in Dassel. Recently Jobachem was nominated for the Lower Saxonies Foreign Trade Award a great honor as the Managing Director emphasized. Affiliates of jobachem are present in Hongkong, Suzhou/China and Atlanta/USA. »We are active in the three most important economies in the world.

MP Weil underlined the importance of the chemical industry in Germany, leading the world with its cutting-edge technology.  However, Dr. Kahl did ask for less rigid regulations through politics. Difficulties are expected among others through »REACH«, the European legislative for Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation of Chemicals. In the coming year 2018 the so far used preregistration will no longer be possible thus the handling of new products for import need an immediate full registration which will be more complex and poses an economical risk. »Until today our reaction to requests from clients was fast and flexible«, Jobachem reported. In the future this will no longer be possible. To make »REACH« a bit smoother to trading companies is on the wishlist from Jobachem. MP Weil admitted this procedure as quite demanding, however, as federal country the impact to European legislation is limited but he would try as much as he could.

Other disputed areas such as infrastructure and logistics were briefly outlined. The new port in Wilhelmshaven where larger vessels can unload is lacking sufficient accessibility especially via train. Moreover, another topic on the Jobachem wishlist describes the centre of logistics in nearby Göttingen. Here as well a train connection to Hamburg harbour is perceived as overdue. Train transport of sea-container proves much more efficient, less costly and fast.

»Publicly known« is the dilemma of the online connection of companies located on the country-side. The speed of the internet is far below commercial centres in big cities. According to Uwe Schwarz member of the state parliament the bottle-neck obviously lies on the provider’s side. He decried German Telekom as main cause why in five other districts we cannot determine any progress. German Telekom actually stultifies the communities and the federal country. The cry for fast Internet access is unmistakable.

Finally, Dr. Kahl elucidates the visions for the future. We will continue to grow and further expansion is anticipated. We hope that local authorities on a municipal level as well as on state level will not impose land-use plans that could contradict these extensions. But MP Weil vehemently opposes any such land-use plans and reiterated that the countries strategy is to support economic development. Companies like Jobachem do not to be concerned.

At the end of his visit MP Weil left Jobachem in a good spirit. He said: “I have not yet encountered such a company and my experience is broadening every day”.

Start of Operation of „New Warehouse“ for Dangerous Goods


23.06.16

Jobachem has put into service a new warehouse for dangerous goods. This event was celebrated by the company with a welcome opening and as highlight “Volaire” did perform a breathtaking “Aerial Dancing” in a hanging scarf.

Among the guests were company members, representatives of the construction companies, the financing banks, the fire brigade, the mayor of the city of Dassel and other authorities from the city.

Dr. Kahl, Managing Director of the company gave a short review of the individual development steps in the past years. From buying the first acre in 1994 to meanwhile an area of 30.000 m2 company ground several halls and an administration building grew up. In the beginning Jobachem was just a supplier for an Aromen and Fragrance producer in nearby Holzminden. Today the company serves the chemical industry worldwide with specialties and services. Core products are Intermediates as a basis for further chemical processing and synthesis of final end-user items.

With 35 employees and affiliates in China and Hong Kong Jobachem is about to become a Global Player. In 2017 the establishment of a branch in the USA is on the agenda. With this step we will be present in the most important markets in the world and thereby do also carry the name of our little hometown Dassel into the world. After all the annual volume Jobachem is handling comes close to 15000 mt special chemicals which under the limited space before was already very challenging. The new extensions of our storage capacities come in a timely manner to realize our future plans with regards to growth of revenue and earnings.

In a short welcome speech the mayor of Dassel Gerhard Melching compliments Jobachem for the so far achieved and he was delighted that a company being active worldwide has its headquarters in Dassel. He further added that among others the public relation of Jobachem contributed to the acceptance of a chemical entity by the local population in this urban area. He reminded on the open house presentation of Jobachem in 2014. Such events are pivotal to generate transparency and gain confidence. The city of Dassel and the local authorities support the expansion plans for the company. One is pleased to communicate with a shareholder lead company who is accustomed to direct and open communication.

Finally the fire chief of the city of Dassel conveyed his congratulations. He acknowledged the high level of fire-fighting measures in order to prevent a fire. The extremely costly fire protecting devices are now elevated and in line with the DIN norm and about one third of the total investment of 1,5 Mio. Euros was spent here. The installations represent one of the most advanced fire-fighting systems all over Europe.

The highlight of the celebration was the performance of Volaire, a young lady who seemed to have conquered gravity. With incredible effortlessness she hovered under the ceiling only fastened with a colorful scarf. Without any other means she followed a choreography directed by the rhythm of the music. The audience was stunned and the applause was guaranteed.

In a get-together at the end of the day guests and staff used the opportunity to exchange ideas. Everybody was certain in the feeling this was not the last occasion to meet at the premises of the company Jobachem.
