In 1894, Hendrick Eikenhout opened his roofing supply company at 346 Wealthy Street in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Today, the company is still headquartered at the original site and carries on the name and legacy of its founder. Over the decades, it has expanded throughout Michigan into seven locations with approximately 100 employees yet continues to maintain the warm, personal service and commitment to excellence it has been known for since its origin.
Eikenhout’s owners – Greg Schierbeek, Mike Chase, Erik Brooks, and Henry Schierbeek – attribute their growth to building and maintaining relationships with people over time. Generation-spanning friendships are at the core of their success. A supportive team of dedicated employees who share the same values and passion as the owners help the company prosper year after year.
At Eikenhout, employees strive to exceed all expectations; their own, their customers’ and their co-workers’. The values that define Eikenhout today are the same values the company was founded on 119 years ago.
