The History of Dr. Beckmann

1934

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.

1971

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

1972

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

1980

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

1984

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.

1985

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 60 countries worldwide.

1986

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.

1995

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 once again. Today, the Surface Power Cleaner as a universal cleaner, the surface cleaners for stainless steel and glass-ceramics, as well as the cleaners for appliances such as the washing machine, perfectly round off the expertise Dr. Beckmann products can demonstrate throughout the household.

2001

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.

2005

With the Colour & Dirt Collector towels, Dr. Beckmann is able to set a further milestone, this time in the field of laundry care. "A trouble-free washing without discolourations" is the motto here.

2010

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