From a man and his idea to a leading company

Everything started in 1982 in a small backyard garage in Düsseldorf, Germany. With many experiments and simple means, Berthold Koch develops the first electronically level-controlled condensate drain out of a brilliant idea: the ground-breaking BEKOMAT. This invention not only solves one of the biggest problems of compressed-air processing - it also represents the first step on the way to success of one of the leading companies for compressed air and compressed-gas technology throughout the world.

1982–1990:

Small roots grow to become something great.

In the early years already, the company, still young, counts on innovation and growth. After having brought the BEKOMAT to the market, solutions for condensate processing are developed. Within a few years, they make BEKO TECHNOLOGIES a company leading in condensate technology throughout the world. At the end of the 1980s, the continuous growth of the company requires the move into new, larger business premises in Neuss.

The nineties:

Moving forward with new ideas.

With a greatly expanded product portfolio of compressed-air dryers and filters, BEKO TECHNOLOGIES for the first time sets benchmarks in compressed-air processing and also continues to be on the worldwide winning streak in the 1990s. A continuous growth and innovation process which is growing in dynamism. The DRYPOINT M membrane dryer, for example, develops into the worldwide leading special solution for compressed-air drying directly before application.

The new millennium:

The company grows with its aspirations

The expanded range of products and the global commitment consequently lead to the change of the corporate name: BEKO Kondensattechnik GmbH becomes BEKO TECHNOLOGIES GmbH. The global orientation of the company still progresses. Through the share in EVERAIR TECHNOLOGY in 2007, the range of products and services is significantly extended, and dryer solutions for high compressed-air volume flows open up new markets to the company group on an international level. In addition, qualitatively top-grade measurement technology to ensure production processes complements the range of products.

2007:

An end – far too early, and a new beginning.

In 2007, shortly after the 25th company anniversary, the founder of the company, Berthold Koch, suddenly and unexpectedly passes away. Without doubt a human break in the company's history, but one which is mastered in superior style thanks to the enormous vitality of the enterprise. With the quick appointment of a new management, recruited from longstanding employees and the managing shareholder family, BEKO TECHNOLOGIES keeps its entrepreneurial continuity, strength and independence. With the expansion of the production areas in Neuss to 9,500 s. qm, the company emerges strengthened from the economic crisis at the end of the decade.

BEKO – a success story.

Superbly prepared for the future.

As an innovative technology leader, BEKO TECHNOLOGIES has in three decades gained a good reputation throughout the world and has acquired a leading position in the compressed-air and compressed-gas technology fields. The company promotes the profound know-how of its employees not least via the company-owned education center and thus ensures the company's successful orientation. With new, trend-setting solutions for the users of compressed air and compressed gases, the company pursues the vision of its company founder, Berthold Koch, also into the future: BEKO TECHNOLOGIES – a high-performance company, independent and family-owned, which is making progress. With customer orientation, social commitment and a human profile.
