Albrecht Jung GmbH & Co. KG was founded in 1912 in Schalksmühle in the Sauerland.
Under the guiding principle “Progress as Tradition”, the company has established itself, in the more than 100 years of its history, as a specialist in switches and systems.
Albrecht Jung, then a 40-year-old electrician, developed and patented an invention: the pull switch with a 1/8 rotation. This principle of short actuation travel is today the basis of all the company’s switch designs.
More than about 20 years ago, the management of the company was handed over to the founder’s grandson Harald Jung, from the company’s third generation. JUNG provides devices and systems that combine modern technology, design and great functionality. This includes switches, outlets, dimmers and detectors of various kinds. There are also innovative function control systems for houses or apartments, ranging from lighting, blinds and temperature control to wireless technology.
