J.A. Becker & Sons started as a workshop, founded in 1897 by Jacob August Becker. He executed metal work for local industry.
As early as at the beginning of the last century, the company started with the serial production of screws for the manufacturers of wood processing plants. Only a few years later, the original supplied parts had turned into complete individual products: fruit and grape presses.
During the late 1920s, hydraulic pressure was used to replace mechanical screws. From then on, it was only a short step from using hydraulic power not only for pressing, but also for lifting. At the beginning of the 1930s, the company thus started to manufacture the typical products of today.
