- Juki and JULIUS-K9®: Leading The Way In Harnesses
Humble Beginnings to Global Powerhouse
History of Julius-K9 company begins with the establishment of Julius Export 2000 Bt. as a family enterprise in 1997. First demands for their harnesses come from police units with service dogs in their local Hungarian market. The first products (muzzles, leashes etc.) are supplied to Austrian and Hungarian companies and authorities. In 1998 the company was still in its very early stages and only cooperated with 9 suppliers globally.
From 2000, dog trainer centers of the Austrian Federal Ministry of the Interior in Strebensdorf and Bad Kreuzen start to utilize several Julius-K9 products on a regular basis, including K9-Powerharness®. Julius-K9 then started to expand its product offer and began to manufacture and develop bulletproof and puncture resistant equipment. This development of their product portfolio meant more heavy duty Juki industrial machines had to be incorporated into their production.
By 2004 Julius-K9 are supply almost all of Europe with its products. The entire development, manufacturing and logistics process is managed through a family enterprise in Hungary, with the cooperation of several employees and subcontractors. Only 6 years later the Julius-K9® brand representatives operate in 21 countries and the brand has become one of Europe’s largest dog equipment manufacturers. Sales in African, the Middle East, South and Central American countries began to increase by 2010 put them on track to be the company they are today.
