The Beebe Company History

 

The Beebe Company was established in 1884 in Portland and Astoria, Oregon by Charles F. Beebe as ship builders and dealers of equipment for the shipping, sailing and fishing industries. It has passed down for five generations, but when Robert Beebe retired in the late 80s the historic family brand lay mostly dormant.

Great, great grandson of the founder, Silas Beebe resurrected the brand in 2012 to apply  international product design and development expertise to durable and innovative leather goods we can still manufacture here in the USA. 

Today, The Beebe Company specializes in stylish universal phone mounts for cars, bikes, and motorcycles, daily carry, and travel.
