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.
Jegro was founded by Mr. J. Groeneveld in Bolsward, the North of the Netherlands. He started creating fine woodwork and producing equipments for the dairy industry and sport article shops, amongst others.
Mr J.Koopman founded the Noord Nederlansche Stempelfabriek in Groningen, also the North of the Netherlands. He started with stamps. After selling a set of rewarding stamps to a teacher, the development of stamps and other educational products started.
The first educational products of Jegro were developed by Mr. Groeneveld, professor Idenburg and Dr. P.Post from the University of Amsterdam.
From the 60s, Jegro dedicated itself to the development and manufacturing of high quality educational materials. Since that time, Jegro has become a well known, respected and recognized creator of educational materials all over the world.
Also from the 60s, the Stempelfabriek expanded every year by producing educational stamps and other educational products. Mr. Koopman started visiting international teaching aid fairs and the first orders from Belgium, Germany and the USA were a fact.
Jegro and the Noord Nederlandsche Stempelfabriek joined forces to be able to offer a full range of additional educational materials. The trade name became Stempelfabriek & Jegro. In addition to the standard assortment they started producing custom made products.
Stempelfabriek was taken over by the Heutink Group. Jegro is now 1 of the 4 brands of Heutink International. Stempelfabriek products are covered by either the Educo or Jegro brand, depending on their target group age. NNSL still produces these products in its factory in Groningen.
