The challenge is to make a small product with all the features of a bigger one

What is my job? I am a fluid mechanics engineer. My role involves scaling a device’s components as optimally as possible. The aim is to ensure the product delivers maximum performance in terms of its efficiency, air flow, noise levels and even energy consumption. What I enjoy about working for a company like JVD is being able to play around with complex technology in increasingly compact products. The challenge is to make a small product with all the features of a bigger one. How can I describe JVD in one word? Flexibility! Working for an SME means you are in close contact with many different skills. My role goes beyond just fluid mechanics. Combining marketing and design, it is genuinely embedded in product development. The processes are quite quick in a company like ours, meaning that we can see things physically changing. I work with the product from concept to production.

BORN TO
BE GREEN

Eco-responsibility has been one of JVD’s pillars from the very beginning. The company’s commitment on this subject only grows stronger every day and now concerns each of its different levels. JVD is dedicated to the idea of transmission and makes it a point of honour to play an active role in an ecological transition which looks out for everyone’s well-being. You might think we’re mad but, if our products lasted 20 years without you having to replace them,  we would be thrilled! At JVD, we design quality products meant towithstand the test of time.

  • WORKING AND PRESERVING

    We have always been convinced that the strategy of today should be to improve the future of tomorrow. All the teams at JVD strive actively to think of everything and to make a real difference. From design to manufacturing, transport to use and customer service to recycling, we know that each detail counts.
  • ECO-DESIGN

    Whether we're talking about our next-gen jet air hand dryers which reduce energy consumption and eliminate the use of any consumables, our flow-reducing soap dispensers or our foaming soap which drops consumptions levels by four, our R&D Department endeavours to design our products to be eco-responsible.
  • RAW MATERIALS AND
    PARTNERS

    Eco-responsibility also concerns our choice of raw materials and partners. Whenever possible, we prioritize partners located as close as possible to our production unit so as to reduce the environmental impact of our transport. For years, we have been striving to ensure that expertise endures and so encourage our suppliers' capacity for innovation. Out of concern for our social impact, we work with associations from the social and solidarity economy.
  • MANUFACTURING

    All our waste is sorted and collected before being sent to a treatment and recycling centre. For example, we reuse our suppliers' cardboard boxes for our shipments, and we grind used paper and then use it as wedges for our shipped products. What about the rest? It is recycled or reused by other companies in the region!
  • 30 000

    it is the number of trees planted since we launched the operation:

    1 hand dryer purchased = 1 tree planted.
  • COMBATING PLANNED
    OBSOLESCENCE

    At JVD, our products are designed and tested to be repairable and to repair them. Our appliances' spare parts are available for 10 years. Quality products meant to be used and to run for the long term.
  • LOGISTICS

    Our packaging is designed with a two fold objective: to protect the integrity of the transported goods and to serve as an installation diagram. These simple, sensible optimizations further reduce our carbon footprint.
