Jegro was founded in 1913 in Bolsward, the North of the Netherlands, and started as a manufacturer of fine wood work. Due to a cooperation with the University of Amsterdam Jegro started developing and producing educational materials. From the sixties Jegro dedicated itself to the development and manufacturing of high quality educational materials and teaching aids. Tradion and workmanship were important key words in the company and nowadays they still are!

Jegro merged with the Noord Nederlandse Stempel-en Leermiddelenfabriek (NNSL) in 2009, also a producer of educational materials and educational stamps. The trade name became Stempelfabriek & Jegro. Due to the expertise of both companies, Stempelfabriek & Jegro offered a wide range of educational products for primary schools.

In the end of 2013 Stempelfabriek & Jegro was taken over by Heutink. Jegro is now 1 of the 4 brands of Heutink International, and it is still mainly produced by NNSL.
