Medical Masterminds.Products for life.
As a medium-sized family company in the third generation, we develop and produce German medical products with our seal of approval "German Medical Quality" in the product areas of hygiene, disinfection & cleaning, prophylaxis, endodontics, OPAL clear glass and articulation paper. Our products improve the everyday work of physicians and their immediate medical environment. But they also create a hygienic living and working space for users in almost all industries worldwide.
As a certified German manufacturer, we stand for the highest quality, reliability and safety and effectiveness of our products. We have been developing these in our company since 1923 in close cooperation with leading physicians from all over the world and manufacturing them ourselves in our own production facilities. The application-oriented solution competence, the comprehensive and regulatory know-how meet people with the claim and drive to provide the best products made in Germany for everyday medical work.
We use this product-related knowledge, research competence and regulatory experience from more than one hundred years of medical device manufacture primarily for our own quality products. However, as an OEM manufacturer, we also make them available to our partners in the same quality. This enables you to bring safe products to market quickly because we can support you from the initial idea to the final product for global registration and approval.
We see ourselves as pioneers and leaders in the development and manufacture of medical products.
This is how we at Becht make our world a lot safer, more hygienic, more functional, more innovative and more reliable today and in the future.
