JL Group LLC was formed in 2022 as a result of a collaboration between business professionals to establish a Technical and Professional service provision to the UAE and wider GCC. Based in Dubai, the Group partners with key OEM suppliers on the technical delivery of both equipment and service within the Print and Packaging industry.

We offer consultancy, alongside our equipment portfolio, to realise the potential of your packaging business. We are different to all, and work alongside to support the implementation of change for continued growth

Being the result of a collaboration between industry and business professionals we also deliver a Leadership and Coaching development program through our Professional service division, that allows the exploration of how 'Naturally High Performance' is available within all of us. We can tailor individual coaching, team development programs and business transformation through delivery of this exploration.
