local smart home

Our team designed and installed full-home control for a three-floor house with an attached barn along the dunes of Lake Michigan. In this instance, full-home control included:

  • whole-home audio
  • robust WiFi and cellular network services
  • automated shades
  • total-coverage RF remote controls in every room
  • automated lighting control
  • televisions
  • touchpads
  • keypads

BENEFITS OF A SMART HOME

When you have three floors and an attached barn, automated lighting control provides tremendous convenience. Turn all of your lights on or off with one touch. You can also set scenes to accommodate your needs.

For a home that has no protection from the sun, automated shades help control the temperature. In addition, they help protect your home’s carpet and furniture from sun damage.

Bekins Breaks Ground On Coopersville Expansion

Growing Business: Breaking Ground on Warehouse Expansion

OUR GROWING BUSINESS NEEDS MORE SPACE

If you drive by Coopersville along the I-96 expressway, you will see construction vehicles at the Bekins Service Center and Warehouse on O’Malley Drive. Bekins has broken ground on a new addition which will nearly double the warehouse and office space, creating space for more jobs at our growing business.

Our locally-owned, internationally-acclaimed appliance and electronics company in West Michigan has already outgrown the three-year-old building in Coopersville.

Bekins President, Scott Bekins, opened the Coopersville Service Center and Warehouse in 2015 to accommodate the company’s growth at the time. With state-of-the-art, interactive showrooms in Grand Haven and Grand Rapids, he planned for the warehouse and office space in Coopersville to accommodate at least 10 more years of company growth. However, Bekins has grown faster than even he expected.

Bekins, which also owns Classic Stereo in Grand Rapids, has nearly tripled its staff since 2010. When the additional 30,000 square feet of warehouse and office space is complete, it will give us the space to double our staff.

IMPROVING EFFICIENCY – CONTINUING TO RECYCLE

The addition includes changes to make operation even more efficient, which enables us to deliver the best service while keeping costs competitive.

Added space will also help Bekins continue to be one of the greenest appliance dealers in the nation. We recycle more than 90 percent of all waste in their facility, which includes:

  • old appliances
  • cardboard
  • plastic
  • styrofoam
  • banding
  • and much more…

Our recycling efforts saved more than 1,286 trees, 7,567 gallons of oil and 280 cubic yards of landfill space in just the last three years.

SERVING MORE CUSTOMERS

The addition will help us serve more of the top-notch products and services that have earned us 20 national and international honors during our 43 years of serving West Michigan.

“We always have been and always will be a service company that happens to sell products,” Bekins said. “People can buy what we sell elsewhere, but you can’t get our service anywhere else. That’s why we continue to grow – better service, same price. We can only do that by being smarter and more efficient. The operations center in Coopersville and our amazing people allow us to do just that.”

Retailer of the Year - Bekins honored by Coopersville Chamber of Commerce

RETAILER OF THE YEAR

Bekins earned another tremendous honor in the West Michigan community. The Coopersville Chamber of Commerce named us 2017 Retailer Of The Year. We were even more honored when they explained why we won the award:

“Awarded to an area retailer who exemplifies extraordinary customer relations, community relations, and employee relations while providing a variety of goods to the community.
Professional and knowledgeable, offering a great product with a great deal! From the moment I walked into Bekins and saw the vintage appliances in their entry I knew they had a good thing going! Bekins has 5-star reviews on Yelp, Google, Facebook and Houzz. I am thrilled to say that they have been a great addition to the Coopersville Business Community and deserve the Retailer Of The Year award with a 5-star review from the Chamber as well.”

thank you coopersville and all of west michigan for your support – without you we would not have won retailer of the year
