The BECK team
In 2010, Reinhold Beck (pictured right) founded HOKUBEMA Maschinenbau GmbH alongside his company BECK Maschinenbau GmbH. His new company takes over the PANHANS brand, which has been in existence since 1918, and has been developing, producing and distributing it ever since and continues to be sold. Since 2018, his cousin Alexander Beck (pictured left) has been firmly at his side as operations manager. A strong team that also tackles itself and looks to the future in an innovative way.
