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.
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.
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.
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.
In order to make a difference in the lives of those in our community, The Bouma Corporation provides support for several local organizations. In addition to our participation in educational construction programs, we also donate time, resources, and supplies to numerous charities throughout the state.
We are extremely grateful to have been recognized for our expertise.
