In September, the DHL relay took place in Aarhus. The relay is an annual run in which thousands of colleagues from many different companies participate. JYSK was represented by 150 colleagues from the Head Office in Brabrand, Denmark.

Distribution Centre Escer is taking shape

JYSK is growing at a rapid pace. This recently became very concrete for Regional Head of Sales, Jimmi Knudsgård Jacobsen, when he visited Budapest in Hungary for the first time in a while: “Last time, this view was an empty field. Now a new JYSK distribution centre,” he writes on his Linkedin profile.

The new distribution centre is located in Escer just outside Budapest and will be fully operational from autumn 2022.



12 colleagues cover 215 km

Corporate spirit across national borders is what it takes to cover 215,7 km in just 18 hours and 23 minutes. This was proven by 12 JYSK colleagues from Poland, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Serbia when together they completed the 2021 Ultrabalaton race in Hungary.

JYSK participated in FSC® Friday
