Josera Karriere

JOSERA, a family company

JOSERA has been successfully involved in the animal nutrition and foodstuff segments for more than 70 years. As a midsize family company, JOSERA is always developing further. The company is dedicated to sustainability, innovation, responsibility and safety!

The company history of JOSERA begins with two visionaries:
Joseph and Pauline Erbacher, who founded the company JOSERA during the time of World War II with a plant for the production of feed lime in the village of Weilbach, Unterfranken.

JOSERA wrote an impressive success story over the years.


1989 – Founding of the non-profit ERBACHER-FOUNDATION

In 1989 the Erbacher family establishes the ERBACHER-FOUNDATION. In more than 30 countries around the world, it supports financial development projects in rural areas. Our projects effectively increase human quality of life. The projects improve sustainable animal husbandry, horticulture and the drinking water supply as well as people’s nutrition. They also promote environmental and climate protection.  

1996 – Presentation of the environmental award

JOSERA is the first company of renown in the Miltenberg district to receive the environmental award for consistent internal environmental protection activities. All savings realised through environmental activities (energy, waste etc.) initiated by employees are distributed as an employee bonu

2005 – Certification as an EMAS company

As an EMAS company, the corporate group commits to the continuous improvement of the operating environment.  

2009 – Development and commissioning of the JOSERA railway station

JOSERA expands its private railway siding. This allows the company to shift up to 45,000 tons annually from road to rail transportation. In doing so, the company eliminates around 4,000 lorry transports a year which means significant relief for roads, residents and the environment.  

2011 – The new high-bay racking warehouse in wood construction and new logistics centre are put into operation

With its enormous size of 77 metres in length, 32 metres in width and 30 metres in height, this building construction innovation offers space for a total of 9,200 pallets on 14 levels. The new high-bay racking warehouse has three picking aisles where the pallets are put together according to customer requirements. Computer-controlled handling devices ensure automatic replenishment.
 
In constructing the new warehouse, the family company consciously chose the renewable raw material wood over a steel structure. In doing so, JOSERA has set another sustainability milestone. The massive gluelam from regional forestry operations is also just as durable and stable as steel construction.
