We are pleased to announce that AuCom is merging with US based soft start company Benshaw Inc. This merger of two market leading technology experts makes the AuCom/Benshaw operation the world’s largest privately held soft start company. Combining AuCom and Benshaw technologies, as well as each organisation’s already impressive sales and service capabilities, allows us to set the stage for a global business ready for accelerated growth and new product development.

This new venture takes effect from 17th December 2019. AuCom and Benshaw will continue to operate under their own brand names as part of the Unico Technologies Group. This exciting development will see AuCom’s operations in IEC markets outside North America continue unchanged, while AuCom North America will merge with Benshaw USA under the Benshaw brand to support NEMA markets.
