The history of the JET Group

JET was founded in January 1970 in Bad Oeynhausen, Germany. At that time, 12 employees produced the first light domes. After just three years of operation JET acquired the first company, Vaculux, in 1973.

In 2000 JET acquired two more companies, Coxdome and BIK, adding more value to the product portfolio. By 2011 JET was bought by the leading Western European investment firm, H2 Equity Partners, forming the JET Group.

Later, in 2016 and 2017, the JET Group acquired the companies Bramo and Xtralite and grew into a leading player in the industrial flat roof segment counting more than 800 people.

In 2018 the JET Group was acquired by the VELUX Group, and today the collective product portfolio is only one of more synergies that has been achieved.
