JOST was founded in 1952 as a factory for ball-bearing turntables in Neu-Isenburg near Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

In 1956 JOST started to produce fifth wheels and in 1960 it commenced production in Great Britain and South Africa. While the walls of the old smithy still existed within the company building, the enterprise itself has developed significantly to meet the needs of the global trucking industry.

JOST offers fifth wheels couplings, as well as sliders and lifting devices.

Today, JOST provides trailer manufacturers with ball bearing turntables, kingpins, hubodometers, lockers for lift vans and components for swap bodies. Almost all well-known manufacturers of commercial vehicles use assemblies and components produced by JOST.
