While the RW Beckett we know today is the North American market leader in combustion products used in heating, cleaning equipment, and other applications, the company, like many others, came from humble beginnings over 80 years ago. What began as an idea and developed into a small family company now has a presence in more than 50 million US homes, bringing comfort and safety to homeowners across the country. While there were challenges and growing pains to overcome along the way, Beckett has managed to continue to grow and innovate while rising to the top of the heating and combustion industry. For a better understanding of Beckett's history and evolution as a company, we sat down with Chairman John Beckett as he reflected on his 57 years with the business and beyond.
In today's marketplace, one of the determining factors of a company's success is the standards for excellence that the business is willing to set and pursue in every decision and action. At RW Beckett, the company's leadership has built its reputation for excellence by creating a company culture that influences every interaction the company has with its customers. Chairman John Beckett and his leadership team have made it their mission to instill the necessary core values into the company's personnel and processes in order to continue Beckett's long legacy of excellence.

“The engineering lab is a place of truth," Chairman John Beckett reminded Beckett employees on the company’s launch of its new laboratory facilities on March 19th, 2019. The newly redesigned, state-of-the-art facility is the third lab inside Beckett's North Ridgeville headquarters and was built with the purpose of serving the engineering needs of Beckett's residential oil heat segment.
With a focus on application testing, training, and product demonstration, the Beckett residential lab and interactive customer experience room is putting Beckett's best foot forward. Said John Beckett, on behalf of the Beckett Family of Companies, "Our friends in the industry are invited and more than welcome to experience our new facilities — in the words of one, ‘beauty from the ashes.'"
