Much more than the sum of its parts

Beck+Heun is Europe's leading developer, manufacturer and processor of highly energy-efficient window systems. Over 550 employees contribute to the success of the family-owned company, which was founded in 1962. They work at a total of three locations in Germany. Beyond Germany's borders, customers from 23 countries rely on our products. In many of them, local sales partners are available.

Beck+Heun's head office is located in Mengerskirchen. It is complemented by two other locations in Erfurt and Altenmünster. Each branch specialises in the manufacture of certain product groups, but also has standard products that are in demand. This distribution in Germany has a positive effect on product development, consulting and delivery times. The locations are complemented by a large field service team. This means that customers have a contact person close by at every location in Germany.

But our service does not end with the delivery of the ordered product. With additional extras - such as architectural consulting, our building physics team or the CAMPUS training courses - we want to offer our customers all-round successful support.

Beck+Heun GmbH is part of the Beck group of companies. It operates in three very different sectors - construction, mobile catering( and equestrian sports( As a result, the individual sister companies are constantly inspired to take innovative approaches.

Products from Beck+Heun are much more than just the material they are made of. The management teams at the sites (here: Mengerskirchen) harmonise all key areas of the value chain - for a straightforward purchasing process, top quality, fair prices and short delivery times.

Be it roller shutter boxes from Mengerskirchen, brick products from Altenmünster or external venetian blind boxes from Erfurt. Our locations complement each other perfectly and allow us to optimally supply our customers.

Our three product forges in Germany

From production to administration to the customer - we pull on a "belt"

We have understood that the success of a company depends strongly on the composition of its team. Behind Beck+Heun's products are construction engineers and physicists as well as experienced craftsmen and technically skilled business people. The next generation also plays an important role - our trainees and dual students are motivated to contribute their ideas and to act proactively right from the start. In addition, our locations in the west, east and south of Germany bring together three typical local mentalities. In their own way, they all live the idea of innovation in the spirit of the founders. And they stick together. This corporate culture naturally also includes our customers. We have maintained business relationships with many of them as partners for decades.

Maintaining this at all times is sometimes a challenge. Here, the company has a duty to support its employees. That is why Beck+Heun offers a wide range of training opportunities to further develop their own professional and social skills. In addition, a comprehensive health programme has been introduced. With joint activities - such as running groups or fitness courses - the focus is on team cohesion and well-being.

The fact that we enjoy coming to work at Beck+Heun is proven by our steadily growing team and the low fluctuation rate. Those who are hired usually stay. Some employees can look back on more than 40 years of service. So it is quite common that their children and even grandchildren are also employed at Beck+Heun at the same time.

After work, it's time to get out of your work clothes and into your sports outfit. Colleagues help you to overcome your inner obstacle.
