1985 – How it all began
The ENJO success story begins in the spring of 1985. The innovative entrepreneur Friedrich Engl witnessed an oil accident on Lake Constance in Austria. The fire department embarked on the arduous task of cleaning up the leaked oil. Friedrich wondered whether there was a better way to handle such environmentally harmful incidents.
Back at home, Friedrich attempted to filter oil out of water using special fabrics. In the process, he discovered that one of the fibres he tested was able to clean deep into the pores. The ENJO idea was therefore born and was later realized by his son Johannes Engl. Johannes founded the company ENJO (= ENgl JOhannes) in 1990.
ENJO is now available in more than 26 countries around the world. More than 2,000 ENJOpreneurs help people make their homes ENJOpure.
