The business was started by G. A. Becnel in the 1960's. In the 70's he sold the business to Behring International and was employed with them as a Customhouse Broker. In 1983 he purchased the Lake Charles office back from Behring and with the assistance of two of his sons G. A. Becnel Broker was back in business. The firm was incorporated in 1986 and purchased by Karl and Jean Becnel in 1989.
