Company history

Becker Plastics GmbH, Datteln (North Rhine-Westphalia), is a leading manufacturer of plastic pipes and pipe systems in Europe. In 1998, Roth Industries GmbH & Co. KG based in Dautphetal (Hesse) purchased the company.

Becker Plastics was originally part of the Becker-Pruente Group based in Datteln (North Rhine-Westphalia). The Becker-Pruente Group was founded in 1911 and produced metal products (wire, chains) as well as machines, primarily for applications in the fields of mining and agriculture. The headquarters of the Becker-Pruente Group was initially located in Castrop-Rauxel but constructed their first production hall in Datteln in 1923 as a result of necessary production expansions.

In association with declining turnover opportunities in the field of mining, the Becker-Pruente Group searched for new business fields. The decision was made to procure the first extrusion line for plastic pipes that formed the basis for a new production sector, from which Becker Plastics GmbH emerged.
