BETA Maschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG
BETA is an internationally active machinery constructor with first-class references providing tailor-made solutions in the fields of precast concrete technology and lifting equipment. We stand for intelligent and robust products with very high technical performance at attractive price level.
We have 65 years of experience in the construction of formwork. At our site in Hofheim (Bavaria), we have been manufacturing concrete moulds for precast parts for civil engineering, such as pipes, shafts and channels since 1950. In Heringen (Thüringia) we have been producing our load bearing equipment, tipping tables, pallets and formwork for structural engineering construction elements for 25 years.
As a partner to the precast concrete parts industry, we produce machines and systems for the complete manufacturing process. Our particular strength is in the design and manufacturing of complex steel formwork and moulds for the production of high-precision concrete parts.
In the field of lifting equipment, we are specialised in the development and manufacture of lifting beams for various working ranges and load bearing capacities. Therfore we rely on our standards or develop fully tailor-made solutions to match the requirements of industry, logistics or trade.
In terms of technology, we have specialised in the processing of steel profiles and sheet steel. Our many years of experience in the fields of welding, grinding and mould construction have helped to shape the very high quality of our products. We are certified per DIN EN 1090 (load-bearing components and construction sets up to EXC3) and per DIN EN ISO 3834 (welding quality requirements).
We bear special responsibility for shaping our future in a sustainable way.
Therefore, we make active and passive contributions.
Our production facilities are constantly being modernised, always with a view to efficient, low-emission and resource-saving solutions. Intelligent and networked solutions play a decisive role here.
We cover the demand for electrical energy in part from large-scale solar plants on the roofs of our production halls.
Our products are another building block for a clean future. High manufacturing quality and constructive flexibility ensure a long service life.
Last but not least, our products serve to build a modern infrastructure that brings the increasing demands of people and nature into even better harmony.
Manufacturing at our locations centrally in Germany and Europe, is another major advantage, as this keeps logistics costs comparatively low.
In order to also reduce the traffic emissions of our employees, we support them in the purchase and use of bicycles and e-bikes for the way to work and in their leisure time.
Mission statement & objectives
BETA is committed to ensuring that concrete plants are ideally equipped with very high performing and cost-effective machines, systems and devices. Dealers and users of our lifting equipment can rely on having the best manageability and highest safety levels at a very attractive price level.
Orientation of the product range towards complete product ranges in concrete plant technology and lifting technology. Innovations will complement or replace existing solutions. The products will be trimmed to the top level in terms of delivery quality, performance and reliability in use. Offer and delivery times will be further optimised. Rationalisation and volume effects will be used to strengthen price leadership. Increasing internationalisation of the business.
Business processes are standardised and transparent. All workplaces are equipped with rational production technology and handling systems. Short lead times from order to commissioning and a close relationship with suppliers ensure growth in turnover, equally distributed between concrete plant technology and lifting technology. Compared to the German mechanical engineering industry, we operate with above-average profitability. The degree of financial independence is high.
Our working atmosphere is characterised by dynamism, openness and cohesion. Creativity, loyalty and personal responsibility are highly developed. Each employee stands out positively through his or her special skills, reinforced by mutual encouragement and demands. Managers serve as role models and act in a motivating and fair manner. The fitness of the company is far above average. We work and pay according to performance and quality.
