JONGIA – The New Jongia
Stagnation means decline in a market that is subject to constant change. JONGIA has invested heavily to achieve its growth ambitions and to continue to make a sustainable contribution to the customer needs. Whether building, test center or workflows – almost everything is new at JONGIA now. With a big event on the 13th of November 2019, the manufacturer of agitators and mixers is celebrating its entry into the new era of company history.
Our factory has doubled in capacity and has been radically changed with advanced test wells and a Technology Test Center. The workshop was expanded by 1500 square meters and thus by around 40 percent. All separate office spaces were demolished and combined into one large open work space. These visible changes go hand in hand with numerous improved processes: Processes, workflows, integration of health and safety laws, the entire logistics – everything has become much more efficient.
The New Jongia on November 13, 2019
On the 13th of November 2019, JONGIA will mark its entry into the new era of the company’s history with a major event. On this day, visitors can expect an inspiring route through the renewed building. In addition, experts report on CFD analyses, EHEDG designs, ATEX standards and a unique development in the field of process optimization in cooperation with the Technical University of Eindhoven and Antea Group.
TU/e and Antea: Searching for the unknown with a swarm of smart marbles
The Technical University of Eindhoven and Antea Group will share a unique development in the field of process optimization. They have recently developed a collection of smart marbles: small balls filled with sensors. In the industry, mixing liquids is often based on experience, perception, linear upscaling and traditional design parameters. By applying these very clever marbles, interesting information is collected. Jongia has tested the balls successfully with TU/e and Antea in their huge silos.
Guest speaker: Olympic swimmer Maarten van der Weijden
As special highlight of that day, the olympic swimmer Maarten van der Weijden will take the visitors on an extraordinary journey. In 2019, he jumped into the water from the JONGIA dock and swam 200 kilometers non-stop for three days and nights. Visitors will learn how he and his team of specialists have drastically improved his performance and how this amazing athletic achievement resulted in the benefit of his foundation.
