What's Important to Us

Our customers’ overall satisfaction with Beckwood’s people, processes & products.


Beckwood manufactures the entire press in-house. We take pride in our ability to quickly convert your press requirements into a well-defined end product. Our just-in-time philosophy always leaves us at the cutting edge of technology because we are able to improve our hydraulic presses each time a new system is manufactured. These reasons, coupled with a responsive and highly trained sales and engineering staff, make us the choice for quality, made-to-order Gib-Guided, 4-Post, 2-Post, C-Frame and Benchtop hydraulic presses. With a custom Beckwood hydraulic press, the possibilities are endless because we design systems that are Made for You & Made to Last. As a result, our customers are able to shift focus away from the press and onto other aspects of their manufacturing process, confident in the knowledge that their press design & performance matches the application requirement.
