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.”
