Jessen dates back to 2006, when Martin and Ronel Jessen founded the enterprise. Inspiration for the venture was a keen awareness that South Africa lagged far behind Europe in the provision of systems for people with disabilities – and their careers.
The single-minded purpose for Jessen, then, was the elimination of that accessibility gap. The company set out to source and market technical aids for the people with disabilities and working tools for their careers. Martin Jessen made use of his extensive network of European contacts to source the most reputable and experienced suppliers of the best systems, equipment and expertise. He soon concluded exclusive agreements to represent them locally.
In short, we offer the best systems together with a full technical advisory service to the specifier as well as servicing and after sales support for the end user. Jessen is focused on lifting and handling, access, bathrooms and project management
