Our production with many facets


The entire production and development at Becker are geared towards sustainability. We source our raw wood exclusively from certified sustainable forests, which means that only as much wood is felled as will grow back in the same period of time. Wood as an infinite resource and importantCO2 reservoir!

Good to know: FSC and PEFC

For more than 85 years, we have been processing beech logs from the region around Brakel in the middle of the world’s largest contiguous beech forest. We are certified according to FSC (C135245) and PEFC (04-31-0341) and therefore “Chain of Custody”. In this way, we offer our customers the assurance that the wood for their molding products comes from sustainably managed forests.

Sustainability: We are about more!

We act economically.

  • exclusively regional raw wood (logs)
  • all the raw material wood is 100% processed in our company

  • repairable products
  • prudent management

We act socially-socially.

  • at the Brakel site for almost 90 years
  • long employee affiliation

  • independent company
  • Longstanding and personal customer relationships

Our goal: sustainability also for our molded nonwoven

For us, the sustainable and conscious use of resources applies not only to wood, but also to nonwovens, which we process into molded nonwovens:

  • All nonwovens supplied and used by us are produced in Europe. Some of the nonwovens are made from recycled PET bottles, and the nonwoven moldings can also be shredded, melted down and spun into fibers again at the end of their useful life. Thus, nonwovens made from 100% recycled fibers can be used on request.
  • In addition, we also use natural fibers such as hemp, kenaf or flax for the production of molded nonwovens. These products can even be composted at the end of their life cycle.

For the love of wood: a digression

The tree as a living, immobile organism supplies itself with the nutrients that are available around its location. The appearance and quality of the wood are thus dependent on the respective environment of the tree as well as other influences such as air, precipitation, light conditions, etc. That is why each tree is unique, a one-of-a-kind piece of nature.

Wood is produced by complex metabolic processes in the tree

The roots absorb water and nutrients from the soil, and the chlorophyll in the leaves enables photosynthesis. Carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air and nutrients from the soil are converted into protein, starch, sugar and cellulose with the help of sunlight. Vital oxygen (O2) is produced as a “waste product” of photosynthesis.

Chemically, wood consists largely of organic material. These are different hydrocarbon compounds, of which cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin are the most important building blocks.
