They are a one-stop supplier of parts and accessories from brands such as Miele, Bosch, Siemens, Electrolux, Whirlpool, Samsung, Indesit, LG, Philips and more.

The clientele consists of department stores, electrical stores, chains & formulas, computer stores, mechanics, kitchen stores and telecom stores.

Robots

What distinguishes Beekman from its competitors is the focus on IT. For example, Beekman has more than 40 robots in its modern warehouse that do the order picking for over 2,500 customers that Beekman has across Europe. Parts and accessories can be ordered easily online 24/7. Orders placed before 22:00 will be sent the same day (also on Sunday). During the past year, Beekman has invested in the expansion and modernisation of their warehouse so the company can anticipate on further growth. General director Jos Beekman: “We currently process some 2,000 orders per day. Our robots can handle a maximum capacity of 20,000 daily orders, so we should be all set for the future.” 

The company aims to set forth its rapid growth in the next five years, with a focus on continued growth in Europe. Today, about 1,000 orders per day come from this market. Their ambition is to significantly increase this number.  Another goal is to enable third parties to make use of their unique logistics system. All the system benefits such as speed, capacity, compactness, and high delivery reliability will become readily available to other businesses. This includes manufacturers as well as B2B and B2C businesses.
