Beck Plant Expansion

Beck Plant Expansion


July 2012

Harold Beck & Sons Inc., manufacturer of Beck electric actuators for industrial control valves and dampers, recently completed a 24,000-square-foot expansion to its facility. As global demand for high quality actuators has increased, Beck has grown its sales and support network, and invested in more capacity and manufacturing efficiency.

In keeping with the company’s 76 year tradition of centralized manufacturing, Beck electric actuators are built exclusively at its U.S. factory. Combining design, manufacturing, and distribution in one location provides the shortest path from concept to execution. Daily communication between all company disciplines result in rapid implementation of ideas and improvements, and high level of quality throughout the manufacturing process.

The new expansion increases the size of Beck’s manufacturing floor by 55%, and lays the foundation for additional machining centers and robotics. It also includes a fully equipped training facility, semi-automated storage system, and state-of-the-art ESD room.

Doug Beck, President & CEO of Harold Beck & Sons Inc., says his primary objective for the expansion was to leverage Beck’s craftsman tradition with modern factory automation and lean processes to produce unparalleled quality, and value for the customer. The larger facility will allow BECK to meet growing demand in an efficient, timely manner.
