A family business from the start, Beckermann has always been linked to tradition as much as to innovation. With over 120 years of experience, Beckermann has systematically built quality into its manufacturing process and services, and continues to keep its finger on the pulse of market trends and technological developments. The result is functionally and stylistically sophisticated award-winning kitchens.
Beckermann was founded out of the municipality of Cappeln in Germany in 1896 by Heinrich Beckermann. Two years after purchasing their first woodworking machine, Beckermann ventured into furniture manufacturing, and its facilities grew both in size and in technological capabilities, with the purchase of an Otto engine which accelerated mechanical production. Synthetic materials and surfaces were on the rise, and Beckermann got on board, incorporating plywood and blockboard into their operations. After World War II, Beckermann was able to establish plants and distribution points outside of Germany.
Far from simply adapting to the winds of change, Beckermann has been pushing the leading edge of change as well. The success of their entry into the brand articles market in the 1960’s was partly due to the boldness of their slogan “Kitchens for Europe’s women” and its message of quality. By the 80’s Beckermann had identified and tapped into the growing need of a mobile society for furniture that was also sized for mobility. Today, Beckermann employs around 200 people and continues to be ambassadors of premium German branded quality. This commitment has earned them the Kitchen Innovation of the Year awards in 2017, 2018 and 2019.
