Jegro was founded in 1913 in Bolsward, the North of the Netherlands, and started as a manufacturer of fine wood work.

From the sixties Jegro dedicated itself to the development and manufacturing of high quality educational materials and teaching aids.
Jegro merged with the Noord Nederlandse Stempel-en Leermiddelenfabriek (NNSL) in 2009, also a producer of educational materials and educational stamps. The trade name became Stempelfabriek & Jegro.
In the end of 2013 Stempelfabriek & Jegro was taken over by Heutink. Jegro is now 1 of the 4 brands of Heutink International, and it is still mainly produced by NNSL.
