Keith Beecher started the business in his Coon Rapids home 29 years ago, then moved to a Foley Boulevard location before “a brain tumor got in the way” back in 1999, he said.
Following surgery to remove the tumor, Keith was back in business, running American Appliance and Mechanical, Inc. from its current location at 10519 Nassau St. N.E., Blaine.
“We do heating and air conditioning and, any appliance in the house, we do – washers, dryers, stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, water heater. We do it all,” Keith said.
“You bring it in and we’ll repair it – any make, any model,” Keith said.
Now, he’s set to expand the parts department and show floor when American Appliance and Mechanical moves to its new location in the Coon Rapids industrial park, located where Hanson Boulevard crosses over Highway 10.
After the May 1 move, American Appliance and Mechanical, Inc. can be found at 11521 Eagle St. N.W., Suite 6, Coon Rapids.
“It’s a bigger space and more visible. I look forward to this move,” Keith said.
“Our new location will allow us to provide a much better retail parts location, and an expanded warehouse will allow us to lower prices even more on some of the most commonly purchased appliance parts, including appliance, heating, and air conditioning parts and filters” Keith said.
Keith said the moves’ timing coincides with American Appliance and Mechanical transition to his son Matt, who is next in line to take over the business.
The transition of ownership from Keith to Matt began three years ago. Now “it’s time to make this happen,” Keith said.
American Appliance and Mechanical, Inc. hours after the May 1 move will be expanded, too. Doors will be open:
• 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday, Wednesday and Friday
• 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday
• By appointment on Saturday
• Closed Sunday
But even after hours, American Appliance and Mechanical is ready to serve.
“Our technicians are all factory trained and NATE certified. Our fleet of service trucks is ready to roll all day. Our technicians can repair most any appliance, no matter what make or model. Just give us a call,” Keith said.
