Inc. Magazine Story on Bevin Bells

1 Comment

Hear Ye, Hear Ye – Read all about us!  Inc. Magazine just published a great profile on Bevin Bells as part of their Main Street section.  Main Street is described as a “tour of small businesses across the country that highlights the imagination, diversity, and resilience of American enterprise.”  We are proud as a peacock to be included.

David Whitford came and spent a day at the factory, heard the stories, met the players, and really grasped what this thing is all about.  We hope you will take the time to read the story.  And we hope you make the commitment to Buy American!

Some of our favorite quotes:

  • Not least among the reasons Bevin Bells is still in business is the peculiar, enduring appeal of bells.
  • “Even though we’ve been around since 1832, and we’re an old made-in-America company, our products are still very functional today,” Cici Bevin says. “It’s not just about keeping history alive. This is a very vibrant category right now.”
  • Memorial Day will mark five years since the fire [that destroyed the entire factory]. How does Doug Dilla plan to observe the anniversary? He sighs: “By coming in the next day and going to work.”

    Hello from us in Cambridge, UK…Congrats on the Bevin Bells article in Inc Magazine. I just discovered you on a search for bells made in the US and read the Inc May article. Smart profile of you and your overcoming that fire. Since inheriting my grandfather’s parsonage desk/reception bell from ca 1900, I’ve watched for tuneful kinds of bells to collect and for grandchildren to enjoy. My husband and I are Americans just finishing a 2-year academic assignment in Cambridge. We can’t get to the famous Whitechapel Bell Foundry in London (Liberty Bell et al) for a souvenir before we depart, so Hey, I thought, why not look for a Coming Home bell. Voila: your company and the timely article. When we settle on a new home in Colorado/Wyoming, I’ll get back with you with an order. Regards, Susan.
