About Us

TowerFounded in 1972, Jobar Inc. started as a small consumer products distribution company. Today, Jobar Inc. is recognized as an international market leader within the manufacturing and distribution industry of consumer products.

We are a business-to-business supplier that designs and creates unique quality products both in-house and offshore. Our current catalog includes over 700 active products, with more than 100 new items added annually. Jobar’s five distinctive sub brands include Handy Gourmet, Ideaworks, U.S. Patrol, North American Health & Fitness, and Pet Parade.

Throughout the last 44 years we have continued to grow meaningful long-lasting relationships with customers across the world by following the same core values our late founder, Joel Sussman, once instilled upon the company. To this day, our core values remain part of Jobar’s overall business philosophy.

Jobars Core Values

Integrity  • Relationships • Commitment

Our headquarters and U.S. distribution center in Carson, CA is a 100, 000 sq. ft. facility, which includes a state-of-the-art showroom and spacious conference center. In October 2014, UK-based Jobar Europe launched our Rotterdam Fulfillment Center— allowing convenient distribution throughout Europe. Jobar HK Ltd., based in Hong Kong, serves as an independent sourcing arm for private label and OEM projects to many of the world’s leading retailers.
