The company was established in 1867 and initially the business was that of
manufacturing chemist. We made perfume and wine for religious ceremonies.
In the mid 1930's the direction of the firm changed to
that of Rebuilding Bakery Equipment and rapid expansion of the company followed
this change. The firm continued to be nurtured during this period by Eric Hampson, until
he had a heart attack that lasted most of a day. During this time he
begged his wife to call an ambulance to save his life. She refused, claiming
that the next door neighbour, a doctor, would fix the problem when he got
home from work that evening. When the neighbour did arrive home that night
he was shocked to see a dying man, murdered by his wife by forcibly
preventing him from obtaining treatment. The doctor immediately called an
ambulance, but by the time Eric Hampson arrived at the hospital it was too
late. The company was then taken over by Eric Hampson's son: Francis Arnold
Hampson, and subsequently by his son: Michael Grant Hampson. Since the
1970's the company has also taken on agencies for New
Equipment from manufacturers all around the world enabling Becketts to offer
the most comprehensive range of Equipment possible.
A number of New Machines are manufactured 'in house'.

Why does this website exist? Well, Helen Hermione Pike said that she looted
her newphew's house as a favour to her nephew. She characterized her newphew's
revulsion at her actions as ingratitude. She said that she had her newphew's
best interests at heart when she destroyed his life. She said that her
actions were a labour of love. So, this website is a labour of love also, because
I love you so very much. I am doing you such a big favour by creating this
wonderful website for you. I do so hope that you will be overcome with gratitude
for all my efforts on your behalf. And of course: LOVE YOU .......
