When Reginald W Beckett founded the R.W. Beckett Engineering Company in 1937 he was responding to a perceived product need in a developing industry for oil heating and a desire to scratch that entrepreneurial itch.
Reg Beckett built the company on close relationships with key customers, solid engineering and a willingness to take on a large competitive field. Since its early days in a crowded market of over 200 competitors, the R.W. Beckett Corporation grew to become the dominant market leader among the handful of remaining companies providing oil burners to the oil fired appliance market.

John Beckett also codified our Ethical Values of Integrity, Excellence and a Profound Respect for the Individual. Values clearly demonstrated first by John and then bred into every sibling company that bears the Beckett name. He provided the opportunity and initial momentum for what has become 7 facilities and multiple companies. John continues as the Chairman of each of the independent boards that oversee each of the family-owned Beckett companies.
He also laid the foundations for those companies that continue to grow today. Bob brought outside experience but more importantly an instinctive business sense for where growth opportunities might exist and how to take advantage of them. He was the entrepreneurial complement to John’s deliberate and effective leadership and stewardship.
Bob Cook was instrumental in the startup of what was then called Beckett Gas along with other ventures inside and outside the family of companies. BGI came about because of John’s desire to see the legacy of the R.W. Beckett Corporation diversified out of the oil heating market after 50 successful years; the company needed more market space in which to grow.
Morrison moved from RWB and worked alongside Bob Cook until Bob's passing in 2002. Under Morrison’s leadership Beckett Gas grew threefold between 2002 and 2015. During this time, Beckett Gas acquired the controls group Varadigm in Plymouth, Minnesota and expanded the Commercial Systems Division into a renovated factory and engineering center in Strongsville, Ohio.
The executive team consists of both home grown and outside professionals. They know the industry but also know how things get done. We are always looking for those unique individuals who see their careers as more than just climbing a corporate ladder. We look for leaders who want to leave a larger impact on the market, employees, the industry, community as well as our shareholders.
Although we have navigated the transition from small startup to growing corporation, we aspire to double and double again our sales and capacity to serve the markets that appreciate what we bring. There is a lot more to be done and many more opportunities to discover and explore.
