Company's History - A short review of the company's history.

J.A. Becker & Sons started as a workshop, founded in 1897 by Jacob August Becker. He executed metal work for local industry.

As early as at the beginning of the last century, the company started with the serial production of screws for the manufacturers of wood processing plants. Only a few years later, the original supplied parts had turned into complete individual products: fruit and grape presses.

During the late 1920s, hydraulic pressure was used to replace mechanical screws. From then on, it was only a short step from using hydraulic power not only for pressing, but also for lifting. At the beginning of the 1930s, the company thus started to manufacture the typical products of today.



The Hydraulic Vehicle Lift

The development of vehicle lifts kept up with the development of the car industry, so that the current product range of the longest-existing company for lifting systems in Europe is able to supply a complete variety of lifting systems, ranging from passenger cars up to the heaviest specialized vehicles.

Compressor Production

Together with the development of lifting units, we specialized in designing and constructing COMPRESSORS. Today our range covers the small workshop compressor as well as industrial compressors, used for example as driving units for electrical high voltage switches or for the filling of oxygen bottles for diving or rescue purposes.

During the last years the company specialized in high pressure compressors e. g. for nitrogen compression and for vehicle refuelling in natural gas stations.

Up until now, the company has remained in family ownership led by Sybille Klumb as the Managing Partner in the 4th generation of the family. 

She is supported by the Managing Director Matthias Frohberg who is responsible for the range sales, construction and design.
