J.L. Becker | Heat Treating Equipment & Industrial Furnaces

About J.L. Becker | Heat Treat Equipment & Heat Treat Furnace Manufacturer

J. L. Becker Company began in 1970 as a manufacturer's representative for five major component part suppliers for both captive and commercial heat-treaters. Our heat treat furnaces, gas generators and auxiliary heat treat equipment have been manufactured under our company name since 1974. All design, engineering and assembly are completed in our facility in Plymouth, Michigan.

In February 2011, Gasbarre Products, Inc., purchased the J. L. Becker Company.

The Gasbarre Furnace Group consists of Sinterite, C.I. Hayes, and J. L. Becker Company. For Gasbarre, the acquisition of J.L. Becker was an excellent strategic and synergistic fit within the group, because the J. L. Becker line of heat treating equipment complements the Sinterite continuous belt sintering furnace line, as well as the C. I. Hayes vacuum furnace and pusher furnace lines.

Combined, Gasbarre now has one of the most extensive product offerings of heat treat equipment in the industry.
