BECKER yesterday. BECKER today.
Way back in 1921 the two founders of the company, Emil and Adolf Becker, were working on ideas that were intended to relieve their customers of work and effort. The company existed in close proximity to its customers, and this helped it to constantly carry on developing and growing. A particular milestone in our company history is the year 1965. That was when the decision was taken to start developing and manufacturing door drives and the associated control units specifically for industrial applications.
In 1971 we extended our product range by adding tubular drives for roller shutters and sun protection systems. We also started developing and producing electrical and electronic control equipment.
With B-Tronic and our CentralControl home automation system we are taking another important step towards the future – and can provide people with even better quality of life, increased safety and comfort. This is achieved through intelligent automation systems that make life simpler.
The company is now run by Emil Becker's grandson, Hans-Joachim Wiegelmann, in partnership with Jürgen Timm. We have grown into an international company, yet still manage to retain the culture of a family business in which responsibility and quality are highly valued. This is one of the reasons that we remain faithful to our site in Sinn, Hesse, where the company was founded, while we continue to manufacture our products in Germany.
For our activities concerning Research and development we are honored with the seal "Innovativ through Research" by the "Stifterverband".
