Becker yesterday to today 100 years of quality

Becker was founded in 1921, by two brothers, Emil and Adolf Becker. By 1965 Becker started to develop and manufacture door drives and the associated control units. Then in 1971 Becker extended their range by adding tubular drives for roller shutters and sun protection systems. We also started to develop and produce electronic control equipment. By 2000, the first drives with integrated radio receivers were added to the range. Then in 2007 the current radio equipment, Centronic, was introduced, followed by CentronicControl home automation in 2013. More recently we have seen the gradual introduction of Centronic Plus, Becker’s bi-directional radio system.

Today the Becker family still own and work within the company, whilst it has grown into an internationally sought after provider, where quality and responsibility matter. The company still retain its original site in Sinn, Hesse, where the company was founded. Becker continues to develop and manufacture our products in Germany.

Becker Australia began in 2007, bringing all the ideals and philosophies of our German Head Office to the local market. Today, Becker Australia is one of the leading suppliers in the automation of roller shutters and sun protection in Australia.

Directives and standards

From the tubular drive and radio transmitters and receivers right through to the matching accessories. Our products comply with directives including the Low Voltage Directive, the EMC Directive, the Machinery Directive and the RoHS Directive. And it goes without saying that we also comply with DIN EN 60335-1, the standard for the safety of electrical appliances for household and similar purposes. Almost all of our drive series for roller shutters and sun protection systems are also certified by VDE and NF and are comprehensively tested based on our internal testing criteria, which are a lot stricter than the statutory specifications or any of the DIN standards.

Beckers drives and controls are compliant with Australia’s electrical and electronic standards. Beckers products all carry the RCM Mark certifying our devices all meet these standards.

High-quality materials and components

Ensuring high quality is a multifaceted task. Top-class materials and the professional production of all of the individual components are at the core of this task, and provide our customers with solid proof of genuine Becker quality. That’s why everything has to be just right in this respect: from the selection of the right materials through to the production of the components. Our suppliers also undergo strict quality audits in order to guarantee that they are meeting Becker’s high expectations.

“Made in Germany”- Quality

Made in Germany. Made by Becker

Reliable quality assurance

Since as far back as 1984, Becker has been working based on the certified quality management system DIN EN ISO 9001. Every area of the company, from development to production and right through to the shipping process, follows defined processes in order to meet our quality expectations in every single phase and to a high standard. After all, our customers need to be able to trust our products – and this is only possible if they are reliable.

Testing and audits

Test, test, test – this is the only way of sticking to a high level of quality at every step. This is why we continually monitor our production processes using state-of-the-art measuring and testing technology. We have introduced an automated testing system to ensure the traceability of our series products, and our technicians and engineers are continually developing new testing methods to make our products and processes even better.

100% testing

Every drive is tested for numerous parameters on a specially developed automatic test bench, and the drive only receives its type plate when all of the tests have been successfully passed. It can then start its journey to you.

Testing returned goods

At Becker, returns are scarce. But when we do receive a complaint despite our best efforts, our engineers look at the product and the affected component very closely. Tests are frequently carried out over multiple days - both on our test bench and during practical use. The customer then receives feedback about the outcome of the complaint. After all, returns give us an opportunity to learn and to turn our 100% quality into 102% quality.

“Made in Germany” quality.

We are driven by our commitment to developing solutions of the highest quality for you. This extends from the initial idea to the development, and right through to production and testing: We set ourselves the most stringent quality requirements at every step. And we use testing criteria that exceed the statutory specifications and DIN requirements.

It’s not just your satisfaction that we’re aiming for here. The reliability and durability of our products is our way of contributing to sustainability and the conscious and considerate use of our resources.
