JESA builds a brand-new factory for its Chinese entity


JESA is a specialist in the development and manufacturing of high-quality bespoke bearings, as well as in combining them with machined / stamped parts and engineering polymers. After having been active in China for over 30 years, and in order to become a main player in the market of quality bearings for the automotive and high-end textile industry, JESA has transferred its production site from Shanghai to Wuxi in 2014. As it is undergoing massive growth, JESA’s Chinese entity has moved last summer into its new, larger and more modern premises, thus allowing for the rapid development of its activities. JESA will be celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.

A new factory that is IATF 16949:2016 certificated 

Having been certified for automotive since 2015, JESA has received in August 2018 the new IATF 16948:2016 certification for its new production site, in addition to the environmental certification ISO 14001:2015.

Special attention has been given to process control. All installations have been equipped with SPC systems (Statistical Process Control), to ensure high levels of reproducibility and quality.

An important step for Jesa’s development 

Thanks to its entities in Switzerland and China, both equipped with modern and complementary production sites, JESA reinforces its global presence and its ability to develop and produce bespoke bearings, as well as innovative and flexible solutions to suit the requirement of its partners. By harnessing our engineering and manufacturing resources in China and in Switzerland, in combination with our network of trusted suppliers, JESA is able to collaborate with large international groups across the world, to locally supply high-quality products and services, as well as to react quickly to the demands of an ever-evolving market. JESA guarantees smooth co-operation, accountability and high-quality service to our customers thanks to highly skilled, multi lingual sales, engineering, and customer service teams in Switzerland and China.

50 years experience

2019 will be jubilee year for JESA. Founded in 1969 by Joseph Egger, the Swiss company is celebrating its 50th anniversary as the ball-bearing specialist; this is a perfect opportunity for JESA to show its know-how during various events, especially during ITMA, the world’s largest exhibition for textile machines, which will be held in Barcelona (Spain) from June 20th to June 26th, 2019.
