JBL employs around 190 people at the JBL factory in Neuhofen and in field sales in European countries such as Austria, France, England, the Netherlands and Belgium.

We are JBL

190 people are employed at JBL. The majority work in production and in the logistics centre. Around 60 employees work in administration and research and 25 field staff work for JBL throughout Europe. The research and quality management departments in particular have been expanded considerably. In 2016 alone, six more scientists joined the team in this area. Almost all employees have one or more pets, many have a freshwater aquarium and some have a marine aquarium. 

This is how we work

A lot of involved departments are needed to transform an idea for a product into a finished saleable product. Here’s an example to illustrate.

  1. A pet shop employee/owner has an idea. He finds it difficult to sell 3 different foods to his customers for the breeding of juvenile fish. He tells his sales representative of his idea to offer ONE carton, containing 3 food sizes.

  2. Our sales representative passes the idea on to the head of food development.

  3. In the next development meeting this proposal is submitted and its feasibility discussed. The sales managers for Germany and Export are requested to estimate the demand of such a product. Many ideas are good but meet too small a target group to make production possible. The minimum quantity for a type of flake, for instance, is 2000 kg.

  4. A prototype of the food is manufactured and fed to juvenile fish in JBL’s own research center. After possible modifications the prototypes go to the fish breeders for testing. After further adjustments we decide whether to produce the product. The packaging and tin sizes are discussed.

  5. The purchasing department procures the raw materials, the tins and possibly the outer packaging.

  6. Marketing develops the layout of the packaging. The language versions are determined in consultation with the export department.

  7. The production manager sets up the machines for production, and produces the food as soon the raw materials have arrived and the machines have free capacities.

  8. The general manager and the sales manager calculate the wholesale price and the recommended retail price for specialist pet shops, based on the costs of raw materials, production and packaging.

  9. The logistics center reserves storage for the upcoming product.

  10. Marketing develops a market launch strategy (e.g. a sample distribution or an advertising campaign).

  11. Online marketing starts online activities for the product launch.

  12. The new product is promoted in the press, on social media and by our sales force.

  13. Sales start and pet shops order the new product. The sales department in Germany accepts the orders and hands them over to the logistics center. There the individual items of the order are gathered from the racks of the high-bay warehouse, then packed and sent to the customers.

  14. By the way, the process we described really did happen and the product is called JBL NovoBaby!

PUSH-Nachrichten von JBL

Als Teil des W3C-Standards definieren Web-Benachrichtigungen eine API für Endbenutzer-Benachrichtigungen, die über den Browser Benachrichtigungen an die Desktop- und / oder Mobilgeräte der Nutzer gesendet werden. Auf den Endgeräten erscheinen Benachrichtigungen, wie sie der Endnutzer von auf dem Gerät installierten Apps kennt (bspw. E-Mails).

Diese Benachrichtigungen ermöglichen es einem Webseitenbetreiber seine Nutzer so lange zu kontaktieren, wie seine Nutzer einen Browser offen haben - ungeachtet dessen, ob der Nutzer gerade die Webseite besucht oder nicht.

Um Web-Push-Benachrichtigungen senden zu können, braucht man nur eine Website mit einem installierten Web-Push-Code. Damit können auch Marken ohne Apps viele Vorteile von Push-Benachrichtigungen nutzen (personalisierte Echtzeit-Kommunikationen genau im richtigen Moment.)

Web-Benachrichtigungen sind Teil des W3C-Standards und definieren eine API für Endbenutzer-Benachrichtigungen. Eine Benachrichtigung ermöglicht es, den Benutzer außerhalb des Kontexts einer Webseite über ein Ereignis, wie beispielsweise über eine neuen Blog Beitrag, zu benachrichtigen.

Diesen Service stellt die JBL GmbH & Co. KG kostenlos zur Verfügung, welcher genauso einfach aktiviert, wie deaktiviert werden kann.
