The Behrens Group - a strong family

Highest solution expertise with BeA, BeA Autotec, KMR and ARCTEC

Our company has strong roots and a clear strategy. Joh. Friedrich Behrens AG has been writing its success story in fastening technology for over 100 years. With the brands BeA, BeA Autotec, KMR and ARCTEC, we are a globally operating group of companies but we still think and act like a family business. Flat hierarchies and short decision paths characterise our way of working.

We actively shape change in the trade, invest in innovative products and services, in state of the art production and logistics facilities and above all in qualified and highly motivated employees. Our aim is to be the first contact for fastening technology for magazine staples, nails and screws.

One company - two brands

We strive to offer our customers added value with our tools and fasteners and that is what has made us successful. We are a system supplier who, like no other, develops and manufactures application and process oriented solutions.

The BeA brand is the market leader in Europe in pnuematic hand and gas operated staplers and nailers in industrial timber construction, furniture production, the repair of pallets and in transport packaging made of wood. BeA Autotec is dedicated to automated fastening solutions for production plants and robot systems in the entire woodworking industry and now also in the automotive industry. BeA products impress with their outstanding quality - even after many years and several million work cycles.

The products of the KMR brand not only bear the founder's initials but also his DNA. This stands for the values cultivated by Karl Matthias Reich, which have distinguished the brand for decades: high quality products made by craftsmen for craftsmen.
