Jebsen & Jessen: ‘We take care of it’

Jebsen & Jessen brings world-class technology solutions to Cambodia and, through its local presence, services and maintains them for the long term.

Technological sophistication, commitment to quality and long-term thinking define Jebsen & Jessen’s success in Cambodia and the rest of Southeast Asia. Going into business from Singapore in 1963, the company has established itself as a venerable player in the region and, with around 4,300 employees in Southeast Asia alone, is a major employer in the segment of engineering, manufacturing and distribution.

Having picked up operations in the Kingdom in 2010, Jebsen & Jessen (Cambodia) has contributed a decade of experience in providing the latest technology with regional and local know-how for solutions tailored to their customers’ needs.

“We bring international-quality technology to Cambodia and that quality is essential if you want to rely and build on it in the future,” Alexander Spitzy, general manger of Jebsen & Jessen (Cambodia), says.

Not only are the quality products and standards Jebsen & Jessen that introduces to the country essential, but the development of the industries that the company fosters is also vital to Cambodia. Helping to create the economic backbone and infrastructure of Cambodia, Jebsen & Jessen largely caters to agriculture and industry – the foundation of the rapidly growing service industry.

“Our international animal feed and animal health products, for example, help the farming industry to substantially boost yield performance and take farming to a completely different level of sophistication.” Spitzy says.

Jebsen & Jessen’s customers’ agricultural yields are shooting up as quickly as the high-rise construction projects that the company makes possible through its high-tech material-handling solutions.

“If you want to move anything vertically or horizontally, we have the solution for you – whatever you need we have it or can make it for you. There is no limit,” Jebsen & Jessen’s Cambodian country head says, adding that this principle of “whatever you need, we design it and construct it for you” is applied to all of Jebsen & Jessen’s business activities, including cables, chemicals, communications, material handling and technology.

For this reason, special engineering solutions provided by Jebsen & Jessen are often pioneering achievements that found regional market leadership positions – and not only in niche markets.

The market for technically complex gondolas, for example, which are used for building maintenance and lifting construction material to great heights, is dominated by Jebsen & Jessen.

With over 1,000 gondolas built and delivered in Southeast Asia and beyond, the company is the regional top-dog in the segment.

The full in-house value chain from design through production to ongoing maintenance and refurbishment guarantees a customised quality solution for special projects. But this isn’t the only reason that clients put their trust in Jebsen & Jessen when they are seeking to rise to new heights.

“Our solutions provide a certain level of security; when working at height or with heavy materials, you need to have top quality to be safe,” Spitzy says, listing another advantage of quality – aside from simply getting the job done.

Without a compulsory construction code in the country, Cambodia needs outside experts that have safety standards scripted into their company DNA through many years of experience.

It is experience and reliability that competing suppliers often fall short of. According to Spitzy, many competitors leave the country once they have finished their jobs and then the customers are left alone when problems arise. Jebsen & Jessen has a local presence of skilled and trained staff plus warehouse facilities in order to give the best service to customers at any time.

Of course, Jebsen & Jessen couldn’t have prospered for 50 years in the region, turning over approximately $1 billion in the last accounting year alone, if it hadn’t always provided integrated solutions.

“Whenever there is a problem that needs to be resolved – we are here and will immediately take care of it.”
