Ahead Through Research

For the development of products for aquariums, terrariums and garden ponds it is important to start off with information about the animals’ way of life and habitats as a basis. As a reputable manufacturer with very high standards JBL does not rely on dubious reports from the internet or information from outdated literature. That’s why JBL runs its own research center, employing experienced scientists, and also organises annual research expeditions to the home areas of the aquarium and terrarium animals, so as to build up our knowledge first hand.

How everything started

About JBL

It all started in 1960 with a small specialist pet shop in Ludwigshafen, which Joachim Böhme, a trained chemist, beetle expert and aquarium enthusiast from Dresden, opened. This turned his hobby into a profession.
