A.E. (Arch) Beaman brought his family from Iowa in 1931 to California for prosperity and sunshine. Arch worked in the WPA during the depression years and eventually became a general contractor settling in the Oakland/Piedmont area of Northern California.

In 1946, upon returning from service in WWII, Roger Beaman joined forces with his father and formed Beaman’s Paint and Decorating, shortly thereafter along with Roger’s brother old photoFaye Beaman the family acquired the original Piedmont Electric Co. (circa 1916).

For the next three decades the business was known as Beaman’s Piedmont Electric and Paint. Arch Beaman ran the retail store on Piedmont Ave selling paint, wallpaper and electrical supplies while Roger and Faye contracted general building, electrical, and painting jobs.

By 1976 Arch Beaman had retired from the business at the age of 83, Faye Beaman had left the business years prior to pursue a career as an Oakland Firefighter (retiring as a Lieutenant), and now Roger’s two son’s, Rodney and Denis, came forth to carry on the tradition. In 1976 the family business was incorporated with the State of California.

Roger Beaman along with his wife Mildred and two son’s formed Beaman’s Inc. The name, thereby not only encompassing the family, but incorporating the varied business activities and interests as well.

During the next two decades the Beaman’s carried on the tradition. Both Rodney and Denis, over thelicense plates watchful eyes of Roger, were afforded the opportunity to expand there insight into the Construction industry not only honing their technical skills as craftsmen, but, developing valuable management expertise while serving the company and industry in many capacities.

The untimely death of Rodney Beaman in 1996 left a void which can never be replaced.

Having pursued other interests within the construction industry during the past decade, Beaman’s Inc., in 2007, re-emerged and positioned itself for the next generation that follows.
