Jonassen Industrial Projects Ltd (JIPL) was founded by Chris Jonassen in 1986. More than 30 years later, JIPL has made a name for itself as leading design/project engineers and consultants specialising in industrial process and environmental engineering.
As a team of project management and design engineers, JIPL is a specialist resource for clients who need ideas customised into sensible, effective solutions. We’re flexible – we can provide complete turnkey design-build services, or we can focus specifically on one or two aspects of the project, working alongside other contractors, and specialists to meet our customer’s needs.
JIPL takes pride in our ability to listen to customers, cross-transfer technologies and ideas, and provide innovative, practical and effective engineering solutions that meet our customer’s needs.
What Our Customers say about us
