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 and KMR, 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.
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.
