Our parent company, BEKUM Maschinenfabriken is the world’s leading designer and manufacturer of “extrusion blow molding” machinery. BEKUM America was established in 1979 with the mission to introduce top quality blow molding machinery, designed to produce plastic bottles, containers and other large plastic parts in the North American marketplace, via blending German design and technology with American skill and ingenuity. Its target was to capture large multi-national customers, as well as small “mom and pop” plastic bottle manufacturers as its customer base.

A sample of products produced on BEKUM’s machinery includes customer favorites such as cosmetic and shampoo bottles, food jars, detergent bottles, juice containers and countless other large plastic containers. As a frame of reference, take a test! The next time you visit your favorite grocer or department store, make your way to the automotive, cosmetic, coffee or laundry detergent aisles, to name a few. The products sold there are mainly packaged in plastic bottles or plastic containers. For the most part, these bottles and containers have been produced on blow molding machines, and the chances are excellent that they are produced on BEKUM-design and built machines. BEKUM likes to say, “You might not know us, but we touch your life every day”.
