A family business for 65 years

In 1955, Hugo Beck founded the company of the same name. Under his leadership the business grew from a local one-man operation in the Swabian town of Dettingen/Erms near Stuttgart, into a medium-sized company operating worldwide. Since the 1960s, our founder developed and built customer specific machines to provide flexible solutions across a variety of mechanical engineering applications.

Today, the family-run company, now in its third generation, is a leader in the horizontal film and paper packaging sector and is represented by a network of partners worldwide.
