About Us: Our History
The Jacobi Group was founded in 1916 by Ferdinand Adolph Wilhelm Jacobi.  A German emigrant from Bremen, Mr. Jacobi set the pace for the company’s future global expansion in the chemical industry through the entire 20th century.  Since then, the company has had the following significant milestones:

1965 – the company enters the activated carbon business as a distribution partner for Bayer, Germany.  At this point in time, the carbon industry was still in its infancy, and most of our business was in Sweden and the other Scandinavian countries.

1984 – it was time for Ferdinand’s grandson (Anders Jacobi) to take over the helm and under his command  the company grew its activities dramatically, not only in activated carbon, but also in other related chemical products.

1987 – Jacobi Carbons established its initial contacts in China and rapidly developed the first major investment of any western company in the activated carbon business.

1996 – Jacobi Carbons Ltd subsidiary in the United Kingdom is opened.

1997 – Jacobi Carbons GmbH subsidiary in Germany is opened.

1999 – MBO of Jacobi Carbons from the Jacobi Group.

2001 – Jacobi Carbons, Inc. (North America) subsidiary is opened in Philadelphia, PA.

2003 – the company established its own facility in Tianjin, China, still today way ahead of the competition.

2004 – Jacobi Carbons (Asia) Sdn Bhd is opened in Malaysia to cater to the growing market in Asia.

2005 – Jacobi breaks ground for a new state-of-the-art, 100% wholly owned coconut shell carbon plant in Sri Lanka.  The 5000 MT per year plant is the first major “Greenfield” expansion in the coconut shell carbon market in over 10 years.

2008 – Jacobi Carbons AG subsidiary in Switzerland is opened to cater to South Europe and Africa/Middle East.

2008 – Jacobi Lanka expands capacity to a total of 9000 MT.

2009 – Jacobi Carbons India opens what is to become the world’s largest coconut shell carbon plant in  Coimbatore, India with an annual capacity of 16000 MT per year propelling Jacobi to the no. 1 spot in the world in the coconut shell activated carbon space.

2009 – Jacobi Carbons (Europe) GmbH is established just outside Berlin, Germany, to provide reactivation services using a state-of-the art plant with an installed capacity of 8000 MT per year.

2009 – Jacobi Carbons Reactivation Services opens outside Baton Rouge, LA to provide reactivation services using a novel low temperature, low energy “green” reactivation process. Today, from our Head Office in Kalmar, Sweden, we are proud to be active in over 100 countries worldwide and still growing!

2011 – Jacobi Carbons announces the acquisition of PICA.
