About Us

History
BENCO Equipment, a family owned and operated business for the past 40 years, was started in 1972 to serve as the factory sales representatives for FMC’s Automotive Service Division. FMC’s name known to the public at the time was John Bean Equipment. Over the years there have been changes in the equipment market. Suppliers have come and gone. Ownership of various brands of equipment has changed, but BENCO Equipment has been here to fulfill the needs of the automotive service technician and shop. Today BENCO sells and services a complete list of shop service equipment from the industries best manufacturers. BENCO stocks over 100 national brand hoists in our inventory at all times. We also have parts on hand for all the hoists and other equipment we sell.

Expert Staff
BENCO sells more automotive, truck, hobbyist and industrial lifts than anyone else in the central United States & Canada.

BENCO can install and service the equipment you need to repair and service cars and trucks. Unlike most of our competitors who sell out of a catalog or off the Internet, BENCO provides complete support for every sale. We can install the equipment, we carry parts, handle our own warranties, and if you decide to install the equipment yourself we always have trained technicians on hand if you should run into any problems or issues.

BENCO’s sales people will help you choose the right equipment for your needs.

BENCO delivers the largest percentage of the lifts we sell in ND, SD, MN, MT, WI, IA & WY on our own trucks, which eliminates lots of freight damage. Our installation experts will install your choices of equipment and show you how it all works.

When you need service on your equipment, BENCO’s service technicians will put your shop back in business when you are down for repairs. BENCO Equipment is a professional equipment company that sells, installs, and provides warranty on every piece of equipment we sell. Call today for an equipment evaluation in your shop.
