Midwest Marine Electrical Contractor

Since 1921, Benson Electric Company has had a relationship with the Almon Johnson Electro-Mechanical, supplying replacement parts and service for equipment. Over the years, our Marine Electricians have traveled all around the Great Lakes and all over the world.

In 2003, we modernized the controls for the Constant Tension Electric Mooring winches on The Great Lakes Fleet vessel Phillip R. Clarke. We installed PLC’s to replace many of the components that were becoming hard to find or were special order, and we are looking forward to modernizing more vessels in the upcoming years!

Marine Navigation/Electronics
Service and Sales

Benson Electric Company’s Marine Navigation/Electronics Division specializes in sales and service. We handle Sperry equipment, navigation, gyros, radar as well as other manufacturers.

Marine Manufacturing and Repairs

Our machine and motor shop work together to bring older equipment back to life. Whether it be old hoists, motor control center starters, or control panels, it is often more economical to refurbish than buy new.

The Benson Electric List-O-Meter Master Control Unit and 5-Light Indicating Units are tried and true in the marine shipping industry, and are still available today to aid in ship loading and unloading.

Benson Electric's tough and durable Ladder Hoists have been in service for many years and are able to handle the harsh elements to provide reliable service for many years.
