After a competitive RFP process, Beko U.S., Inc., a subsidiary of global consumer durable company Arçelik A.S., has named Addison-based 31,000 FT Advertising Agency as its U.S. social media partner.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with 31,000 FT to reach consumers with our message of sustainability and performance,” said Justin Reinke, Vice President of Marketing at Beko Home Appliances USA. “As Beko continues to grow in the United States, we believe 31,000 FT’s expertise and nimble nature will help us engage the category in fresh and exciting ways.”

The brand completed fully sustainable production across all its manufacturing facilities and is among the first appliance makers to reach carbon-neutral production in 2019 and finish with carbon credits in 2020 (per the PAS 2060 Carbon Neutrality Standard).
“Our team was incredibly passionate about pitching this business,” said 31,000 FT CEO, Carter Keith. “Beko’s drive to improve the health of people and the planet is a story we are eager to be a part of, and the social stage is the perfect space to tell it.
