About us

The Steidl & Becker Company was established by Julius G. Becker and Carl Steidl in 1922 as a factory for chalks. August Meywirth bought the company and since then it is owned by the Meywirth family.

The range of trade products has been extended over the decades and the distribution sector grew more and more. Our activities have always been international.

With the change of manufacturing processes and the migration of factories the need for chalks got less. To compensate the loss of customers, we extended our range in the hobby and craft sector. Today we are one of the leading distributors in our market.
