Forum Gennebreck

in Wuppertal Wichlinghausen

"A training centre, not a museum"

 

In BECKER's history, the topic of air in connection with » vacuum pumps and compressors was already the focus at an early stage. In 1928 , the company built a new location in Wuppertal Wichlinghausen with an office building and a production hall. A Bauhaus-style factory villa and a park followed a short time later, followed by a further extension in 1960.

In 1971, the new factory started operations in the industrial area of Wuppertal Nächstebreck, before all production facilities and the administration were finally merged there in 1981. In Hölker Feld, the former factory thus became today's headquarter.

 

The historical buildings in Wichlinghausen remained but were externally rented and used as BECKER's warehouse.

 

In 2015, the BECKER family decided to preserve the company's former site in Gennebreck to underline the connection with the historic site in Wuppertal Wichlinghausen.

In 2018, after the partial demolition and the laying of the foundation stone, the construction of Forum Gennebreck began. The Contour building and parts of the roof and windows of the former production hall were preserved.
