Karl-Johan Blank, active owner and Group CEO, has been involved from the start and built up Jula together with his parents ever since it was first established at the Jultorp farm on the outskirts of Vara. Karl-Johan was at senior high school and took part in the business by welding, working the lathe, and photographing the products.
– I lived in an environment where entrepreneurship was taken for granted, it has always been like that, says Karl-Johan.
Since then Karl-Johan has developed Jula into an international group, with markets in a total of six countries. Karl-Johan’s sons, Christian and Fredric, are also active in Jula. Christian Blank works as a Business Area Manager at Jula, and Fredric Blank works at the group’s real estate company G&K Blanks Fastigheter.
