In a recent School Transportation News spotlight on family owned businesses, BESI Inc. and President Sue Weaver were recognized for their commitment to customer care and integrity.
The More Family, the Merrier
Sue Weaver, who took the reins of BESI Inc. after her father passed away, enjoys working with her engineer husband, Lorne, and daughter, Brittany, who oversees sales and marketing. In 1975, Bill Moore founded the company in Hamilton, Ohio., out of his garage. Three decades later, it has evolved into a leading manufacturer of seat covers and passenger securement systems.
“Our claim to fame was the innovation of the Velcro seat cover,” Weaver said, adding that BESI has kept pace with the changing student transportation industry by “knowing what changes are happening and how it’s going to affect the product that we make.”
Weaver also said she takes pride in maintaining the values of honesty and fairness her father instilled in her, with vendors, BESI’s customer base and its employees. “What’s special is that, at the end of the day, the work that you do means something and it matters more,” she said. “It’s extremely rewarding.”
