Benson Engineering is a third generation, family owned, representation firm. The company was founded in 1946, by Carl A. Benson. The young company was started by representing a leading bearing manufacturer and in the years that followed, Mr. Benson built a business founded on great products, hard work, integrity and a strong ethical standard that has been passed down through generations. In the 1970’s Carl R. Benson took over the business. This generation added a warehouse business to the portfolio, which moved the organization into new markets and opportunities. Throughout the 1990’s, the organization continued to change as new generations became active. 2000 was a pivotal year for the company as a partnership between Curt Benson and Alan Hobbs set the course for future growth and development. Through strategic acquisitions of highly trained personnel and increased product lines, Benson Engineering continues to provide customers and OEMs with quality products, outstanding service and ethical standards Benson Engineering is known for.
