Benson History

Our story

Every company has a story, and there are some pivotal moments and projects as we reflect on more than three decades of providing services that keep people and facilities secure and safe. Today, Benson employs more than 125 people and has more than 75 vehicles on the road every day. Most employees have been with the company for more than 20 years, and many more for well over 10. We’re still a family-owned, privately held company with two generations of the Benson family working actively in the company.
