Benshaw Incorporated is well established as a manufacturer of a comprehensive range of applied motor controls and motor protection products, specialising in mission-critical motor control solutions for heavy-duty industries and applications, including mining and tunnelling operations.
Since its founding in 1983, Benshaw has built its extensive portfolio, offering the industry rugged and reliable products. These products are supplied to mines across North America by distributer and mining safety and power distribution solution providers, Carroll Technologies.
“We are a stocking distributor for them and have been for decades, they’re a very reliable company with a good product,” explains Carroll Technologies president Allen Haywood.
“Benshaw is a company that designs, builds and manufactures soft starts and motor controls, which we use in the construction and building of our belt starter.
“They’re also used for complete packages for starting builds and starting pumps. They have a lot of contactors and can provide any electrical starting applications for motors, so they have a lot of pre-packaged systems that house the contacter or the starter, the transformer, the push button and control and indicator lights, at all different sizes and different variations for different sized motors.”
Purchasing Benshaw products through Carroll Technologies gives customers access to MinerCare 24/7, the most comprehensive product support service in the mining industry. MinerCare offers around the clock technical assistance, as well as rapid response to emergency situations- supporting more than 800 mines with a spare parts inventory worth more than $7 million from 70+ manufacturers at 13 distribution centres across the US.
