100 years JÜRGING - Stations of a family business
Gustav Jürging founded the company and started with the distribution of natural casings. Only a few years after the First World War, he offers sewn hog casings and dried hog bladders to a steadily growing customer base in his workshop in Gütersloh. Today, the internationally active company is one of the leading suppliers of high-quality natural casings.
after Gustav Jürging's death, his wife Mathilde takes over the management of the company with their two sons Karl and Erich. During these years the product range is extended by butchery supplies such as machines, knives, spices and canned food. With the additional assortment, the JÜRGING company sees itself already in this early phase as a competent supplier and contact partner for its customers.

Karl Jürging continues the business on his own, as his brother Erich is regarded as missing. With a reduced product range Karl concentrates again on the core competence "natural casings". In times of reconstruction and the economic miracle, this enjoys a growing product variety. So already at this time an extensive range of natural casings is offered.
Karl Jürging continues to expand the international trading business. Thus, he takes over the company Bergé, which is authorized to handle import and export business. This puts the company in a position to resume trade relations at an early stage shortly after the end of the war. Thus, a steadily growing and reliable network of international partners and contacts is gradually established.

Here the natural casing offers not only a natural look but also a support for the natural taste of the end product. Ultimately, the natural casing is and remains the only natural packaging for sausage products.
