The beginnings of JOPP date back to 1919 when the Theodor Jopp KG, a company for manufacturing bicyle parts and agricultural equipment, was founded. Since the majority takeover of the company by Dr.-Ing. Hubert P. Büchs in 1991, JOPP has been owned by the Büchs family.

With the expansion of the automotive parts business, a course of growth started which has continued to date.  Due to the foundation and acquisitions of new plants, the extension of existing company sites and the setup of internal product development, the JOPP Group has been growing stronger than the automotive market. Today, it registers a turnover of around 185 million € (planned 2022) and over 1,700 employees worldwide. JOPP has own production sites in Europe, Asia and America.
