Beckers got its name from Carl Wilhelm Becker, a German chemist. He realised that there was little competition for consumer paint in Sweden, and set up shop in Stockholm in 1865. Over the years Beckers has grown both organically and through acquisitions. In 1985 the Lindén family became sole owners of AB Wilh. Becker. Beckers Group was formerly known as Becker Industrial Coatings, a business area of AB Wilh. Becker.
Beckers is a wholly owned, independent subsidiary of Lindéngruppen and headquartered in Berlin, Germany.
