Dipl.-Ing. (graduate engineer) Peter Jakobs studied automotive engineering at the RWTH Aachen University, Dipl.-Ing. Alexander Houben is a graduate mechanical engineer specializing in engineering design. They both got to know each other during their spell working at MonarchBusch GmbH in Düren and once the company was moved abroad they decided to set up their own business together.

Now JHT GmbH is a dynamic, up-and-coming company, which is creative and flexible. In this process the experience of the older generation was passed on to the younger generation.

Due to their many years of professional experience as well as the technological diversification of the portfolio the foundation of the company following the turn of the new millennium succeeded in spite of the difficult economic conditions.

As SME, we also conduct research projects in our special subjects coating, welding and similar technologies. Furthermore, we conduct research projects for mechanical engineering purposes. Our activities in research and development have been partly supported by the European Union.

JHT GmbH has constantly grown over the past few years. Therefore, we moved from Hueckelhoven to Geilenkirchen in September 2010.
