The Company behind Dr. Beckmann

delta pronatura is one of a few independent medium-sized companies distributing branded products in Germany. The company is managed by third generation owners Gerhard Krauss and Heiner Beckmann and – since 2016 – also by his son Nils Beckmann, representing the fourth generation. By manufacturing and distributing its own Dr. Beckmann and Bullrich brands as well as the Blistex and Bi-Oil brands distributed under licence in Germany and Austria, delta pronatura has established a broad market position.

The History of Dr. Beckmann


The company underwent a restructuring in the area of washing and cleaning agents through the takeover of the Stain Devils.



The first Stain Devils helped to create stain free conditions in German households.



The Stain Devils are advertised on television for the first time.



Phosphates in detergents are officially prohibited. Dr. Beckmann Stain Salt quickly becomes known as the best solution against greyish laundry and a poor washing performance. The Dr. Beckmann brand is born.



Stain Expert and Stain Salts from Dr. Beckmann are successfully introduced into markets all across Europe. Today, the brand stands for purity and cleanliness in more than 80 countries.



The products Stain Expert, Stain Salt and Colour Run Remover and subsequently the laundry pre-treatment products were consolidated under the common Dr. Beckmann umbrella brand with its own logo.



The time was right for a household cleaning milestone: With the Oven Cleaner Gel, Dr. Beckmann introduced a cleaner for the oven without aerosols, and demonstrated its potential for innovations one again. Today, a wide range of surface & appilance cleaners round off the expertise of Dr. Beckmann.



Within the scope of its expansion the company relocated to Egelsbach. And the two managing directors, Heiner Beckmann and Gerhard Krauss, continue to professionally lead the company at its new site.



With the Colour & Dirt Collector sheets, Dr. Beckmann sets a further milestone in the laundry care category for trouble free washing without discoloration.



The Stain Devils celebrate their 40th anniversary. Congratulations are received from all over Europe.



The Dr. Beckmann brand receives, for the fourth time, the award as a “top brand” from the food industry. Once again, the award is earned for the stain removal competence – our core expertise as stain removal specialist.



Stain Expert& co. boast a brand new look. Thanks to the international design relaunch, Dr. Beckmann Stain devils now radiate a more dynamic, modern feel.
