bj was founded in 1910 by Henri Bauman and Berthe Jeanneret. Although initially a specialist in stationery products, the company soon diversified. With the launch of its office furniture arm, it rapidly and successfully differentiated itself from its competitors.
In 1989, Baumann-Jeanneret diversified further and became a Nespresso agent and later on the sole distributor for the Nespresso professional product range.
Nowadays, Christian Wahl, great grand-child of bj’s founders, has taken over as the head of the company. An elite sportsman, he heads bj and drives the growth of the two businesses by applying the same values and showing the same enthusiasm that led him to success in his sporting endeavours: the pursuit of excellence, teamwork and a continuous focus on clients’ satisfaction are the principles he wants bj’s success to be based on.
