JOST Brasil celebrates production milestone

Equipment specialist, JOST Brasil, has produced one million fifth wheels since it commenced operations in 1995.

The managers and employees who work directly in the manufacturer of the product, according to JOST World, gathered to celebrate on 16 June 2021.

“The company customised a fifth wheel model which symbolically left the production line and will be displayed at the company so that the JOST Brasil team can sign it, take photos and post them on the social networks with the hashtag #1MIQRJOSTBR,” JOST World said in a statement.

For over 65 years, JOST’s factory in Neu-Isenburg has been in operation, and much has changed since it first opened its doors in 1952. Vera Terporten, Marketing Communications at JOST, describes how the floors were once cobblestones and everything from the flooring to the machinery has been upgraded over time with state-of-the-art technology.
