Increasing the efficiency of our customers

Continually improving performance

Added value for our customers. This is the yardstick for all our successes. As early as 1889, company founder Carl Berkenhoff, with his "fine wire drawing facility" in Herborn-Merkenbach, Germany, was characterized by a central idea: to offer his customers more than others offer. Over the company's more than 130-year history, this understanding of customer proximity and orientation has grown into an enduring constant.

Today our products and services are represented in over 50 countries. Customers worldwide value bedra as a reliable partner for sustainable solutions in the fields of innovative high-tech precision wires for spark erosion, welding and brazing technology, electronic components, and special applications.

Developing quality and market leadership

Together with our long-standing partners from industry and research, we work passionately on the development of new products and processes. The aim of these innovations is to sustainably improve our balance sheet in terms of efficiency, performance, and quality. In all our activities, we strive to develop our position as a quality and market leader. This is one of the reasons why we rely on the use of high-quality materials. Our wires are made of copper, brass, bronze, or nickel silver. Regardless of whether they are coated or plain, they are always optimally matched to the high demands of our customers.

High expenditure on research and development

With our own foundry, we have a classic unique selling point. That's why we’re able to be so responsive to the wishes of our customers. And it’s also easy for us to produce alloys based on individual customers’ ideas. Or we adapt surfaces and dimensions to our customers’ desired specifications. This is our definition of flexibility. We gear our services to the needs of our customers. Our own research and development department gives us valuable support in this. The considerable effort we invest in this area results in many patented innovations. Because of this our company is associated with the phrase “smart wires.”

Team spirit

Meeting on equal terms

We regard our customers as partners. We pursue their goals with full commitment. In striving for outstanding solutions, we value meetings that take place on equal terms. This enables us to focus even more on common goals. We meet challenges with true team spirit. At the same time, we make our entire company’s know-how available to all our customers. In all of this, we are always loyal and we internalize our clients’ business objectives, taking them on as our own.

Friendly. Honest. Open. Confident.

Committed to our customers’ goals

Smooth communication forms the foundation of a resilient and cooperative relationship with our customers. Informative cooperation geared to individual goals is a basic prerequisite for business success. With customers, suppliers, and employees, we cultivate a spirit of partnership on equal terms. As a company, we have deeply internalized the concept of service. Achieving customers’ goals is our commitment. Friendly. Honest. Open. Confident. That's how we communicate. All in all, this understanding of customer proximity defines what our service orientation should mean in everyday life.
