In 2018, JOST opened three new sites: in New Zealand, Turkey and Thailand. The world’s leading manufacturer of vehicle connection systems, modules and components for trucks & trailers thus strengthened its global sales network and company presence across all continents.
Neu-Isenburg, August 2018. – JOST opened a new branch in Auckland, New Zealand this year. JOST New Zealand Limited sells proven JOST products, such as fifth wheel couplings, landing gears, bearings and king pins. Under the management of Managing Director Kate Bucknell, the product portfolio will be expanded to include all JOST products in future. The JOST brand has been established on the New Zealand market for many years, and with JOST New Zealand Limited, there is now a local branch which can act immediately and is available at all times for customers and their growing requirements.
JOST was also able to expand its network in 2018 with JOST Otomotiv in Kemalpaşa / İzmír, in Turkey. JOST acquired Duban Makine, the supplier for container equipment which was founded in 1997 by Kasim Duban. From autumn 2018, container equipment and also fifth wheels will be produced at JOST Otomotiv. One of the main customers is Daimler Aksaray in Turkey.
This year also saw the founding of JOST Thailand Co. Ltd. The new JOST site in Bang Sao Thong, near Bangkok, will be home to production and sales of fifth wheel couplings in Thailand.
Lars Brorsen, Chairman of the Executive Board of JOST Werke AG, is delighted with the network expansion: “By opening three new sites, JOST is resolutely pursuing its globalisation strategy and strengthening its presence in new countries which promises success for our company”.
