German Open 1963: Erich Arndt against Eberhard Schöler
The brand JOOLA has
its origin in the 1950s when it was popular to combine the names of companies
and cities. The sports department of the department store JOOss
in LAndau was involved in the production of the first table tennis
tables in 1952.
The credit of the
establishment of this brand, which has subsequently become a market leader
rests with Karl Frey, the former owner of the company Fr. Th. Jooss, who died in 1991. As early as 1954 "table tennis production"
became an independent department within the group and when demand exploded
it finally moved from Landau to Godramstein in 1963.
At the same time this
department freed itself from the mother company and an independent company
was founded. Despite taking over additional buildings the production capacity
was reached and a new building became inevitable in 1970. After 10 months
of construction the factory in Siebeldingen was ready for occupancy in
1973 - 1800 m² production, 1200 m² warehousing and 700 m² office area
was designated to meet the requirements.
In 1979 Michael Bachtler
who had been responsible for the company as managing director since 1968
took over the company. He is assisted by reputable table tennis specialists.
