Quality products “Made in Germany”


From development to series production

Unlike many other companies, we have gone the furthest in incorporating the individual production steps in our production process. JB-Lighting is the only manufacturer in Germany that independently develops intelligent moving lights with LED technology for professional use – on approx. 2,500 m2 of production space – and manufacturers everything in-house except for a few components. We don’t just do the final assembly on site, but all the related steps in manufacturing – from development and design, to prototyping, mechanical series production, and further processing of electronic parts.

No compromises in quality, performance or efficiency

All steps in work and production are always completed with a quality and function check of the manufactured parts, so that any potential defects are virtually excluded in the preliminary stages.
Due to the continuous upgrading and flexible construction of our entire production facility, we are not only able to manufacture in a very demand-oriented way, but also react to trends in the lighting industry with flexibility at any time, act independently of suppliers to the greatest extent possible and promote our developments.

With JB-Lighting, “Made in Germany” is guaranteed

Because we best meet our quality standards with our own well-trained staff, we decided to carry out as many production steps in-house as possible. While the final assembly and a limited manufacturing facility had already been incorporated at JB-Lighting from the beginning, other departments were established and expanded over the course of the last 20 years.
This means we’re in a position to effectively meet our standards and your requirements regarding design, excellent technology, functionality, processing, performance and service life.

Short paths and decision-making processes throughout the entire production operation

We are therefore able to determine the most effective paths to production for a spotlight in advance. For this reason, we can offer our products in a price segment that is not a matter of course for German brand-name products.
This has allowed us to develop a solid and satisfied customer base whose feedback is vital for further developing our products.
In the following, there is an overview of our departments and the respective production steps. Comprehensive quality and function tests are carried out at the end of each manufacturing process.

Since 1990, JB-Lighting has been developing, designing, and producing intelligent spotlights and lighting technology solutions at Blaustein in southern Germany. Everything began with company founder Jürgen Braungardt’s fascination with mirror scanners. The technology, which was brand new at the time, combined complex mechanics and analog (later digital) control and inspired Jürgen Braungardt to develop his own spotlights.
Then as now, the focus was always on developing reliable and user-friendly products. So it's not surprising that many spotlights which left our factory many years ago to be used in discos, clubs, bars or on live stages are still in use today. JB-Lighting opened a new chapter in lighting technology in 2005 and presented the VaryLED 3*84, the first stage-ready LED-based washlight, combining all the benefits of LED technology, such as flat design, low power consumption and long life. This made JB-Lighting a pioneer and trendsetter in a market segment that is now the focus of virtually all well-known manufacturers.
LED technology is still a big challenge and our development department is constantly working on other exciting products. But it's not about using LEDs because they’re 'hip' or promise good sales. On the contrary, the benefits of LEDs should really come into play. JB-Lighting is also well prepared for the future. Jürgen Braungardt and his team of committed and extremely competent employees consistently pursue the goal of further establishing JB-Lighting as a premium manufacturer, developing innovative products and modern tools, without any compromise in terms of service and customer proximity.
