JACOB was founded by Wilhelm Jacob in 1922 in western Stuttgart. As a manufacturer of contact terminals for heating and cooking appliances, Jacob became known for the slogan "Contact with and through Jacob" ("Kontakt mit und durch Jacob”). Steady growth and the extension of the product range brought the company to Fellbach, then Waiblingen, and finally to Kernen-Rommelshausen.


At Kernen, we have the state-of-the-art manufacturing plant with about 200 employees; we have cable glands made of brass, stainless steel and polyamide in our range and we can offer standard products and customised solutions to our customers based on our worldwide experience. Presently we are spread in over 70 countries including India; but, our glands are still predominantly produced in Kernen Germany.


Today, the Jacob Company is an innovative medium-sized family owned company with an international orientation. With the changed slogan "We have more in common" ("Uns verbindet mehr"), we are leading the cable gland industry, in terms of innovation and customisation.

We have cable glands with UL approval for all needs of OEMs and also we have GL approval for quite few of our product range. Further, we have ATEX series of polyamide glands to be used in explosion proof areas. We can also supply HAWKE brass glands for all types of applications including refineries and mining applications. Recently, we have added cable entry plates to our existing wide range of products.


Our standard product range includes following: Cable glands – polyamide, brass (with nickel or zinc plating) and stainless steel; Measurement and control technology; Customised glanding solutions; HAWKE brass cable glands; Sealing grommets; and Cable entry plates.


In India, we are working through Techworks Engineering, a launching platform for startup companies from Europe. Techworks is having godown in Noida (Delhi NCR region) with all back office supporting resources for serving our customers in India.
