Benchmark is one of the state’s leading suppliers to the construction, engineering and surveying industries and works with clients throughout North and South Carolina. Chuck Harris, president of Benchmark, says the time was right to move into a deeper online presence and introduce the online product catalog.

“We have seen the construction industry tighten in the last year or two, just as all industries have been affected by the downturn in the economy,” he explains. “Our clients are continually looking at the bottom line and searching for ways to improve their efficiency. Many of the products we carry are tools that will increase their productivity in the field - whether it’s a GPS machine control system for a motorgrader or a fleet management system for their trucks, these tools are helping our clients take control of cost. Our online store is really a response to what our clients have been asking for and we are presenting it in a way that is easy for them to use.”

The company carries a full line of supplies and represents an extensive product line including industry-leading manufacturers such as Topcon, Magellan, Carlson, Sokkia, MicroSurvey, CST/Berger and Seco.
