Over the years Jongia developed into a manufacturing and engineering company. For several decades the company’s activities were mainly directed towards the dairy industry, being abundant in the region. Even at that time, mixing equipment has been part of Jongia's product range already.

In the nineteen-eighties Jongia acquired the mixing branch of Stork Plaatwerk Velsen. Jongia started to focus on stirring and mixing equipment for the chemical industry as well, benefiting from Stork’s long years of experience in that field.
