In 2018 we did extensive research into the possibilities for an even stronger stainless steel screw. The results of the tests surpassed our own expectations with a tensile strength that exceeded 900 N / mm². The Jextar brand was born.
One year and many positive responses further we decided it's time to give the Jextar brand its own identity. We were looking for someone as strong as the Jextar screws, someone with the same drive to be the best. When our karate champion Yassine asked if we wanted to sponsor him, we immediately knew this was the right match. Meet the new face of Jextar, Yassine El Attar.
"I am honored to be the face of Jextar," Yassine says, when we ask him what this sponsorship means to him. “This gives me a boost. Normally I finance everything myself, from training to the trips abroad. Jeveka makes it a lot easier for me to focus on my goal: the Olympic Games in 2020, where Karate is featured for the first time. ”
The similarities between Yassine and Jextar are striking. Both have come a long way after extensive preliminary work, and both have the drive to be the best. That is why it was immediately clear to Jeveka that Yassine is the right face for Jextar. "Both are powerful and dynamic, and you can rely on both to get the job done," says Stephanie Veltkamp, director / owner of Jeveka. “Yassine is a five-time Dutch champion in its weight class and the Jextar screws are the absolute champions in their class. Both are still developing and there is still enough room to reach new goals together. "
Yassine agrees with her: “The opportunity to develop myself and gain experience is also one of the reasons that I chose for Jeveka as an employer. The job is challenging but easy to combine with my sport. And getting the chance to be the face of a "strong" brand like Jextar is the icing on the cake. "
