JES Elektrotechnik and DURAG Holding will work even more closely together in the future: as of January 2018, DURAG holds a 50% stake in the company. JES develops, produces and sells environmental monitoring solutions for traffic applications.
Headquartered in Hallein, Austria, JES is the market leader in the German-speaking world in systems for monitoring air and lighting conditions in tunnels. It has been a DURAG GROUP sales partner for tunnel sensors for many years.
“Through the partnership with DURAG, we now have access to a worldwide sales and service network for our tunnel sensor solutions,” explains René Jung, Managing Partner of JES.
DURAG CEO Frank-Uwe Schulz says: “The DURAG GROUP in turn benefits from the extensive experience of JES Elektrotechnik, which has completed several hundred tunnel projects, and completes its portfolio of sensors for monitoring air and light conditions in tunnels.”
JES as tunnel competence centre of DURAG GROUP
Within the DURAG Group, JES is established as a tunnel competence centre.
Jung adds: “Despite its small size, Austria is one of the countries with the most tunnels in Europe. Austrian tunnels also have very high safety standards compared to other countries. We communicate this message by our brand JES tunnelsafety.at.”
In addition to the production and installation of the sensors, JES supports many tunnel systems and carries out maintenance on behalf of tunnel operators.
“We are therefore aware of the pitfalls of operation, take the concerns of the operators into account and incorporate them immediately into the further development of our products. This results in highly satisfied customers,” continues Jung.
In order to generate further growth, JES will invest in a new building near the existing site. The areas of administration, sales, production, development, training and technical services will be merged there.
