The History of Dr. Beckmann


The history of delta pronatura and thus also that of Dr. Beckmann began in 1934 in a Berlin pharmacy. In Neu-Isenburg, the success story started to develop in the early 70s.


The company underwent a restructuring in the area of washing and cleaning agents through the takeover of the Stain Devils.


The first Stain Devils helped to create stain free conditions in German households.


The Stain Devils are advertised on television for the first time.


Phosphates in detergents are officially prohibited. Dr. Beckmann Stain Salt quickly becomes known as the best solution against greyish laundry and a poor washing performance. The Dr. Beckmann brand is born.


Stain Devils and Stain Salts from Dr. Beckmann are successfully introduced into markets all across Europe. Today, the brand stands for purity and cleanliness in more than 80 countries.


The products Stain Devil, Stain Salt and Colour Run Remover and subsequently the laundry pre-treatment products were consolidated under the common Dr. Beckmann umbrella brand with its own logo.


The time was right for a household cleaning milestone: With the Oven Cleaner Gel, Dr. Beckmann introduced a cleaner for the oven without aerosols, and demonstrated its potential for innovations one again. Today, a wide range of surface & appilance cleaners round off the expertise of Dr. Beckmann.


Within the scope of its expansion the company relocated to Egelsbach. And the two managing directors, Heiner Beckmann and Gerhard Krauss, continue to professionally lead the company at its new site.


With the Colour & Dirt Collector sheets, Dr. Beckmann sets a further milestone in the laundry care category for trouble free washing without discoloration.


The philosophy of Dr. Beckmann is properly expressed with the new brand-claim "When we say clean, then it's absolutely clean".


The Stain Devils celebrate their 40th anniversary. Congratulations are received from all over Europe.


The Dr. Beckmann brand receives, for the fourth time, the award as a “top brand” from the food industry. Once again, the award is earned for the stain removal competence – our core expertise as stain removal specialist.


Stain Devils & co. boast a brand new look. Thanks to the international design relaunch, Dr. Beckmann Stain devils now radiate a more dynamic, modern feel.
