ABOUT US

HOW WE STARTED

LEGACY

The legacy of the Bouma Corporation dates back to 1950 when brothers John and Paul Bouma began the Bouma Tile Company in Southwest Michigan. A small loan from their parents allowed the brothers to grow their business, excelling in both residential and commercial interiors. To this day we still follow the guiding principles they established and continue to embody them in every project we complete.

OUR APPROACH TO

SAFETY

As one of our guiding principles, safety is at the forefront of all that we do. Safety education and planning are a main priority at every level of our organization. In-depth planning takes place both internally and with our clients to identify and eliminate or control potential hazards on every job. We are continuously looking for ways to improve safety and compliance with regulatory guidelines.

OUR COMMITMENT TO

QUALITY

Quality is prioritized in our work. The Bouma Corporation uses state-of-the art materials and equipment in order to meet a project’s bottom line and deliver on budget. We pride ourselves on the knowledge and experience our multi-generational team brings to each job.

CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT

In addition to the wisdom from our experienced employees, we share our lessons learned throughout the organization to improve the safety, efficiency, and quality of our work. Our Continuous Improvement team meets regularly to discuss and test new ways for our team to leverage technology to improve the services we provide.
