The company was founded in 1961 by Wilhelm Beck.
The original field of activity was the development of components, in particular from high quality wood. Later, the company focused on products for outdoor furniture.
In over 50 years, BECK has continually set new standards, especially in waste containers and ashtrays and has developped pioneering products. Increasingly, this also applies to the product groups bollards, bike racks and benches.
In early 2003 the company's name was changed to Beck GmbH & Co. KG and the company headquarters moved to Winnenden.
