Technology
at the highest level

the reason for our success.

The true strength of our passion for clamping technology sometimes only becomes clear to our customers after millions of clamping and unclamping strokes.
As a provider of complete systems and a technological leader in this niche market, we have set numerous standards in clamping technology over the past few decades. We are a valued development partner of the world’s leading machine tool and spindle manufacturers.

Our extensive user expertise is as wide-ranging as it is profound, and our development and manufacturing skills and our sound knowledge of processes enable us to deliver clamping systems which you can rely on. Now and in the future.

Milestones
in clamping technology.

Having set so many standards, we believe we have the right to talk about them.
We do not simply settle for a good solution – we always look for the absolute best. Perhaps this is because we have continually raised the bar in the market with new innovations in recent decades:

We do not see
quality
as a standard

but rather as a lifelong promise.

Our quality standards are exceedingly high.
Naturally, this applies to our own products, where we leave nothing to chance – from development, production and assembly to thorough performance tests and the final quality inspection. ‘Long-life clamping technology’ represents a lifelong promise of quality.

But we also expect our suppliers, the quality of whose parts we constantly test, to meet such high standards. Quality throughout the entire life cycle can only be achieved through continuous quality and environmental management and superior service support. We call this the OTT-JAKOB quality cycle.

The OTT-JAKOB
quality cycle

From the initial enquiry to after-sales service: We focus on quality from the outset and have developed our own quality process for the development and production of our clamping systems: it starts on receipt of the initial specific enquiry with one of the technically skilled contacts in our company and covers the joint project planning and offer phase as well as production in line with the customer’s requirements and installation support. Afterwards, our after-sales service is available round the clock if any problems should arise, and we guarantee the availability of our spare parts all over the world and over the entire life cycle.

Passion
drives us.

This is clear from the outset.

The most important factor behind our success is our employees
Is where we live, the Allgäu region, the reason why our employees are happier to go to work than people elsewhere? Perhaps it is simply our determination to always deliver the best solution for our customers – be it a clamping unit, a full clamping system or innovative electronic components to make our systems that little bit better.

We are always there for you
Our experienced staff of technophiles always have time for you and always have a good answer. After all, they are most skilled at listening to our customers, identifying problems and opportunities and then implementing them in the form of an optimised clamping system solution. Their passion for precision down to the smallest detail is evident through and through. For us, this is a fundamental requirement for new developments and products.

What our
employees say:

Ott Jakob - Testimonial Mitarbeiter - Simon Schmölz, design

In my previous job as a bricklayer, I was involved in building the new administration building in 2004 and 2005. At that time, I never imagined that I would later be employed in the very same building. I have been a technical drawer at OTT-JAKOB since 2011 and, every day, I never fail to be motivated by the thought of working in an environment characterised by team spirit and outstanding expertise. Besides the diverse work, I particularly value the warm, amusing and open nature of my colleagues. Work is fun here!

Simon Schmölz, design

My training as an industrial mechanic was perfect preparation for the work I currently do in the grinding shop. What I have always liked at OTT-JAKOB is the honest, trusting cooperation between superiors and employees. After I was hired on a permanent basis, I was soon allowed to independently operate production machines with which I was not familiar. There is an excellent working environment here and the conditions are perfect for being able to work in peace. OTT-JAKOB is also a social company in every aspect.

As an apprentice, I find it great how quickly you are given responsibility at OTT-JAKOB. It is also great fun to be part of a highly precise production process. My personal highlight so far is the first workpiece I produced on my own. Our colleagues’ readiness to help and solve problems ensures that our customers always receive top-quality products. However, professionalism during everyday work does not allow humanity to fall by the wayside – OTT-JAKOB places great value in collegiality. The management and works council work to maintain a positive working atmosphere by providing the ideal general conditions.

Franz-Xaver Müller, trainee industrial mechanic

At OTT-JAKOB you not only have the chance to operate an extremely well-equipped machine outfit, but also to work with great people. I am very happy to have the colleagues I do and was inspired by their tidy way of working from the outset. The peaceful working environment is particularly noteworthy, primarily due to the good relations between superiors and employees.
