Brad and Amy Beier are caring parents and hardworking business partners. Amy is the force behind Northland Portable’s business plan, marketing and sales, while Brad manages the ever changing day-to-day operations. In addition, Brad is the brains behind their custom-made equipment. With a background in mechanical and auto body repair, Brad has designed and built all their trucks and trailers. This has been the key to their success. The equipment he designed and built not only meets the needs of Northland Portables, it is also substantially less expensive than purchasing new equipment.
Together, they are advocates for supporting and servicing other local businesses. They enjoy developing strong community relationships and have close ties with the local builders association.
Although business slows during the winter months, the duo has worked to develop ways to keep the company busy with maintenance projects while most of the crew is stuck indoors. This ensures that equipment will operate properly during the warm months of spring and summer. For the portable restrooms that are rented and serviced all winter long, the Beier’s keep a close eye on the weather, knowing that an unplanned cold snap can mean equipment issues.
The Beier’s are always looking for ways to grow their business, even to the point of partnering with other portable restroom providers. When a big event requires much of their services, they enjoy the benefit of working together to ensure neither business becomes responsible for having large inventories.
Brad & Amy consider family of high importance to their business. As natives of Grand Rapids, they know roots are important. Northland Portables is a business the whole family is involved with, because during busy seasons, everyone needs to be able to help wherever needed. Having developed long lasting relationships with other businesses in the area, they consider them to be part of their extended family.
