> 1999

In the beginning there was the material! Enthusiasm about the material carbon and the desire to realise our own creative ideas, which were also to be of technically high standards, resulted in the founding of the company Becker Carbon in 1999. The company‘s founder, Christian Becker, had previously gained extensive experience in the aerospace industry. Already during our first year we produced components for an aerodynamic design by Volkswagen AG, doubling the previously achieved results in wind tunnel measurements. In the same year Christer Lindholm won the ProSuperbike championship, using the modified carbon covering made a crucial contribution to this success, improving the aerodynamics and thus optimising the engine output characteristic.

2000 was the year we went into measurement engineering. An alidade for an index arm measuring machine set truly new standards, which, thanks to its low weight, was able to increase the measuring potential by more than 60%. The first off-tool accuracy is below 0.03 mm with deflection and torsion.
Becker Carbon also picked up more points on motor sport racing tracks. J.rg Teuchert from the Yamaha Supersport Team won the world championship. And a Porsche GT2 came in first place in the Divinolcup championship. It was Becker Carbon parts that made a decisive contribution to the victory, because they improved the vehicles‘ aerodynamics, weight and performance.

> 2001

The year our mechanical engineering department supplemented our product portfolio. Machinery components were produced with angle tolerances of 0.002 mm. These proved themselves through their low weight and were also a trump with their immunity to x-rays and heat expansion.

Our idea: to provide handicapped people with more quality of life. This mindset prompted Christian Becker to design a wheelchair based on carbon as early as the 1990s. In 1994 he received an international designer‘s award for this wheelchair, which he had developed in the name of another company. The medical equipment field now also has a permanent place at Becker Carbon.

Quality . . . . By means of a high claim Becker CarbonÅLs quality has always been „visibleto the eye“ and that is why only perfectly converted assemblies result from any tooling.The 3D-coordinate free-style shape measuring machine is a new component that is able toprecise the manufacturing even more.
And the outcome of this is an improvement in quality management:
All of the incoming and outgoing tools, moulds, patterns and assemblies can be precisely measured in a maximum.

> 2005

Being nominated for the „Big Price for Medium-Sized Businesses of the Oskar- Patzelt Beneficence“, the company obtains an appreciated recognition from the economic commercial environment. In the aerospace division Becker Carbon is going to be a supplier for the AIRBUS projects. Eurocopter is also one of their „flying“ customers.

> 2006

At the beginning of the year the new production hall – which began in themiddle of 2005 – was finished. The whole production process and administrativedepartment will be housed within this new company building to guarantee a moreeffective and loyal way of working with the slogan: innovation through competence.The most appealing concept of this production hall combined with an office gains a lot of positive feedback from its customers.

> 2007

The formation of the Becker Fr.s- & Modellbau GmbH is another step toprovide full service to our customers. Even though itÅLs located in the same building,this company remains independent, this structure gives us a much better overviewresulting in more flexibility and efficiency.
Also our activities inside the F1 sportsracing together with Scuderia Toro Rosso and BMW-Sauber are well worth a mention.

> 2008

By autumn this year the production plant was expanded by a new hall providinganother 1200 m.
The plan of this expansion was set up in February 2008. This hall was finished by theend of 2008. With approximately 60 employees by the end of 2009 Becker Carbon will be able to meet all its expectations build up over the last two years.

> 2012

 The BECKER CARBON team has now grown to over 80 people. The plans for further expansion of production are in the decision phase and are to be implemented at the 2012/2013 turn of the year.

The BECKER CARBON team size is now over 100 employees. The planningphase for hall 3 began in 2012, its implementation started in 2013. By the end of2014 the new hall will be completed. Since August, some areas of production, quality management and administration have moved into the new premises.The BECKER CARBON team size is now over 100 employees.
