“We have been stocking distributor for Benshaw 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.”


All Benshaw operations are ISO certified. This includes all components, enclosures, parts, and materials, which are inspected, tracked and kitted according to ISO 9001 protocols.
