Back in 1830, a Mr.Johann Daniel Becker commenced the manufacture of both Screws and threading
Taps in which resulted in the company "Wilh.Becker Werkzeugefabrik" being founded during 1867.
After the confusion of the Second World War, the production continued at the old location at
Kronprinzenstaße in Remscheid (200 m²) with only one employee, however due to continuous
investments the production facility increased and the manufacturing plant grew accordingly.
Finally the new production plant in the "Überfeld" Industrial area was built and here the whole
production plant is concentrated in an area of 3.450 m².
In 1974 the current company "Wilh. Becker GmbH & Co.KG, HAHNREITER Gewindetechnik" was
founded by a merger with another company called "Ernst Birgden HAHNREITER Präzisionswerkzeuge".
Both the products and manufacturing processes have dramatically improved since the near era and
various types of taps have been researched and developed to work all types of materials under
different conditions. The quality of HAHNREITER products has frequently been enhanced by the
investment of modern machines, high quality measuring equipment and highly skilled and qualified
personnel. The latest CNC technology and automation will always enable us to be at the forefront
of the Industry in respect to Quality, Service and Price. Quality and service is our
