About us

The opening of Bergman Power Equipment in 2011 brought founder Larry Bergman back “home” to West Michigan. Larry was born and raised in Marne, Michigan, and his father and brothers worked for many years at Bergman Lumber in Standale. He began repairing motors at a young age, and after a career that brought him from being a mechanic for Keizer Equipment to being Vice President of Materials for SoundOff Signal, Larry realized a lifelong dream by opening his own business with Bergman Power Equipment.

In 2013, Larry and Judy added Backyard Birding to the store for customers who enjoy the rewarding hobby of feeding birds. Judy has a passion for nature and has her Master Naturalist Certificate from Michigan State University Extension.

from our customers

“They repaired my tractor. I appreciated their honesty about what needed to be done.They were helpful, did good work, and charged a reasonable price for their services.”

“Professional, customer-first oriented, trustworthy and dependable. Larry and team have gone the extra mile for me. Bergman PE serviced my ten-year-old Simplicity lawn tractor with pride. Then I I purchased my second Simplicity tractor. Outstanding customer service. Thank you.”

Cyndrea Engelsma

“These poor folks, they’ve stayed after hours TWICE to sell me equipment and make sure I had what I needed. 2 years ago they delivered a snowblower in a blizzard after staying late to sell it and prep it for me. I’m happy we still have small family owned businesses like Bergman.”

Dave Martin

“We have purchased several units from Bergman and are very happy with them. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. We also love the Backyard Birding and gift area.”
