The development of Beck Konzept
In 2003 Alex and Pia Müller took over Hans Beck’s business, developing visionary goals to turn it into a dynamic, competitive, widely recognized company.
beck konzept ag employs some 50 highly skilled staff in the fields of interior design; planning/project and construction management; advice/sales/administration and manufacturing and assembly. To ensure that the company continues to have enough skilled workers in the future, beck konzept ag is training nine apprentices as EFZ draftsmen specializing in interior design and EFZ carpenters.
