Innovations based on tradition
Founded in the mid-50s, the medium-sized family business is now in its third generation. After joining his parents' business, graduate engineer Jürgen Beckmann started developing and producing coin-operated machines in 1979. Whether in tennis halls, laundromats or on campsites, the machines of Beckmann GmbH already convinced at that time by quality, precision and longevity. A short time later, special controls followed in order to meet the requirements of the solarium industry.
The many years of experience of the Hövelhofer in the field of self-service payment systems was constantly used to open up further business areas. On the basis of a modular technology system, the product range was successively extended by access systems, access systems up to integrated parking lot systems with energy, supply and disposal columns. Since the expansion of the company in 2002, 1,100 square metres have been available for planning, design and production. Today, around 20 employees develop and produce components in both the hardware and software sectors at the German site.
Since April 2009, Michael Beckmann, a graduate in industrial engineering, has been supporting the company in the area of marketing and sales. With the arrival of Stefan Beckmann in autumn 2013, the management team was completed - as a graduate engineer in mechatronics (FH) and MBA, he is primarily active in the areas of project management and quality. Especially here we see the advantages for our customers: Short decision-making processes, high responsibility, long-standing tradition and the willingness to always be open to new ideas as a partner to our customers. Unchanged since the foundation of the company is the enthusiasm for the development of new solutions and the associated possibility to integrate new technologies into our products.Quality creates trust
