JB Electro, a private held company owned by founders and employees, was founded in 2008 by Stian Jacobsen and Jan Narve Bakken
At the establishment of JB Electro, JB Group was a fact. JB Electro was originally a supplier of highly skilled electricians, foremen and supervisors with the intention of supplying both JB System and external customers with service and EI&T installation.
When JB group expanded with additional products and services, JB Electro got additional responsibilities and products to support; As a natural consequence of extended product range within JB Group, service and Norsok Z-015 verification and upgrade turned into an important part of the services from JB Electro.
In 2013, Dag Ove Vea entered the team, a well-known resource with years of experience in the industry. Our DNV GL Presafe certified EX workshop was established, with Dag Ove as the approved Responsible Person.
From this point the strategy of JB Electro changed to be a complete one-stop-shop EI&T system supplier. Including both engineering, design, programming, installation, commissioning and testing. Safety systems, such as ESD and Fire & Gas detection, in addition to Fire Fighting, became an important part of the services.
Based on the experience from the Norwegian O&G industry, the ambitions and long-term commitment for JB Electro is to continue to grow and extend our product range and capacity as an innovative and sustainable one-stop-shop EI&T and automation and safety system supplier for the worldwide energy industry.
