What does your company supply?

JEB designs and supplies world class innovative partitioning systems.

How did the company start?

JEB started in Singapore in 1990 as a small dealer of partition frames. The company expanded to Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia, China and has distribution in 10 other countries across the Asia Pacific and Middle East.


Where do you distribute?

JEB has offices in Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Beijing, Shanghai and Dubai. Our dealers are all around the world, including the Philippines, India, Thailand, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman and Australia.

Describe your customers.

JEB’s customers are generally well known Fortune 500 companies, however we approach every project with the same passion and commitment.

What sets your company apart?

JEB is continually innovating and contributing to design. We collaborate with architects and designers, pushing the boundaries with our products in both standard and bespoke applications.

We have the deepest product portfolio of any partition company in the world.

JEB is continually setting the benchmark for quality finishes, and innovating products and materials to meet market changes.


What are your clients’ priorities at the moment?

Our clients look for value for money and a point of difference when using high end products, whether that be in a better resolved and designed product or better service in specifying the right product for their individual needs.

Across the region, we often see end users and designers alike wanting to use space in a more effective manner. We have developed products that focus on performance and functionality in response to this need.

What is good design to you?

Good design is when you look at a product and it is immediately understood in terms of its function and aesthetic.


What does the future hold for JEB?

The future is very bright, especially in Australia where we have had a fantastic welcome back to our spiritual home.

We have a just released our ’Integra’ double glazed operable wall (pictured above), the first flush glazed operable wall on the market, which is providing end users more flexibility of their space. We’re finding that front of house meeting rooms are being moved away for the space to double as a function area.

In 2012, JEB is also releasing an exciting new range of aluminium and timber finishes. Watch this space!
