Beemsterboer: A Family Business
Our goal is to consistently exceed our customers’ expectations by providing them with quality, cost-effective products. In turn, this will increase our customers’ profitability and productivity on a daily basis.
A family-owned business since 1933. It began as a small contracting company operating out of a garage in Roseland. When Sam Beemsterboer recognized the demand for aggregate material after World War II, Sam and his brother, George, began one of the first ACBF aggregate crushing and handling businesses in the United States.
Beemsterboer was separated from the excavation company and officially incorporated in 1953. The two companies now are called Beemsterboer and George J. Beemsterboer, Inc.
After Simon’s death in 1959, George and Sam’s two sons, Ted and Simon, continued to consistently serve the steel mills in the Chicago and Indiana regions. The third generation of Alan, Steve, Simon, Pete, and Theo have extensively expanded the Beemsterboer footprint into material handling, terminal operations, and custom boutique products in the aggregate and glass industries. The fourth generation of Beemsterboers, Mike, George III, and Simon John continue the expansion and growth of the companies.
We currently operate 3 terminals, multiple aggregate yards, several coal handling facilities, and are involved in salt transloading, landscaping, mill services, trucking, equipment rental and landfill operations.
