Founder Alexander Houben proudly emphasizes that Alexander Krause and Steffen Lambertz are driving the positive development of JHT. Everyone is optimistic and looking forward to the new challenges this year. The company management also sees JHT as a key player in roll-to-roll processing in the future. The energy transition is a particular focus: the demand for battery electrodes, catalyst-coated membranes and other products is constantly increasing. JHT's machines have established themselves in these and other industries. Together with partners from industry and research, the process and machine technology is further developed and optimized in cooperation projects.

The Streetscooter

After one year of development with the Streescooter GmbH and RWTH Aachen, the first prototype of the “Streetscooter” has met the expectations of the Deutsche Post in October 2012. The Streetscooter is a trendsetter of electric cars for letter and parcel delivery.
JHT is involved in the development of economic E-cars. They are responsible for the fixture engineering and the design of welding work stations for the small-series production.

A prototype of the Streetscooters was presented in September 2012 at the IAA in Frankfurt for the first time. In 2013 and 2014 2000 Streetscooters will get to market for public services in Germany. The access to markets in the Netherlands is aimed as well. From 2015 20,000 vehicles per year should be manufactured and sold.

JHT sponsored the alumni football match of the Aachen University of Technology

JHT has already been cooperating with the Aachen University of Technology for some time now. Team building, solidarity and sportsmanship are assigned great importance at the University of Technology. Students in addition to professors and staff devoted an entire afternoon to the alumni football tournament to enhance this further.

Ten teams from the mechanical engineering and the mechatronics department played against other in perfect weather conditions on the pitch of VFL05. In the final the business engineers beat the mechanical engineers and won the Alumni Cup. The afternoon was sponsored by JHT. We would like to warmly congratulate the winners on their success!
