Finally, Ben-Mor uses all available technology to increase the efficiency of its service and ensure continuing excellence to its clientele.

 

A promising history

Ben-Mor was established in 1992 in St-Hyacinthe, Quebec, specializing in the production of cable assemblies. The tenacity and dynamism of its five owners have led to the broad diversification of Ben-Mor's activities, reflecting its current state.

 

In 2006, Ben-Mor acquired Continental Cable located in Hinsdale, New Hampshire, USA. This affiliate company is an ISO9001 and AS9100 company which is essential when serving the aircraft industry. Also, Continental Cable is a qualified products list producer of MIL-DTL-83420 aircraft control cable as well as Federal Specification RR-W-410. With these qualifications, Continental Cable is now able to provide military and federal specification products for the aircraft and industrial markets.

 

The acquisition of Sling Tech in 2012, an Ontario based manufacturer specialized in the manufacturing of synthetic slings most particularly round slings, has confirmed Ben-Mor's positioning as a leader in the Canadian industry. The unrivalled expertise of SlingTech has propelled Ben-Mor at the top of the country's manufacturers.

 

Always attentive to its customers’ needs, as early as 2013, a new warehouse in Boucherville (Quebec) is added to the manufacturing operations to offer a much larger array of products (chains, cables, accessories, etc.).

 

In September 2017, Ben-Mor acquired two leading companies in the rigging and lifting industry: the rigging division of Saturn Industries located in Winnipeg (Manitoba) and Roughrider Rigging located in Regina (Saskatchewan) and Saskatoon (Saskatchewan). These acquisitions will allow Ben-Mor to expand its range of specialized lifting equipment with exclusive products.

 

With the addition of its distribution centre, plant and sales outlet in Calgary (Alberta), Ben-Mor can offer prompt delivery service throughout North America.

 

In January 2023, Ben-Mor acquired Fortune Rope & Metal situated in three strategic locations in the United States; Bristol (Rhode Island), Bensenville (Illinois) and Jacksonville (Florida). Fortune Rope is an industry-recognized supplier of aircraft cable, wire rope, chain, coated cable, stainless steel and galvanized, chain and hardware fittings to a wide range of industrial and commercial customers. Fortune Rope can handle the needs and requirements of customers throughout the 50 states, as well as abroad.

 

Since its foundation, Ben-Mor has become the largest sling and cable assembly manufacturer in Canada. There are 375 employees at the heart of Ben-Mor’s success working in 10 manufacturing plants located in North America who share the same passion for customer service.

 

Employees with common objectives

As a professional company, Ben-Mor is particularly concerned with the quality of life of its employees and their individual development. In addition to promoting employee health and safety, it offers all employees an environment of evolutionary management which encourages interaction, upward mobility and a balance between work and family. Choosing to pursue your career at Ben-Mor is to choose to work as a team, to become involved and find fulfilment by reaching common objectives.

The 10 Locations in North America

Giving back to the communities and minimizing the environmental impact

Did you know? Ben-Mor is committed to have a positive impact on its communities by giving each location the resources and the freedom to support their local nonprofit organization. For example, at our head office in Saint-Hyacinthe, a different organization is chosen each year and many activities are planned during the whole year to harvest money and goods that will be given back to the people in need. 

 

Taking care of our communities also come with an environmental responsibility. That is why we always try to minimizing our environmental impact by many initiatives. For example, we recycle the water used in the cooling system during the extrusion process, allowing it to be changed only twice a year! The remaining polymers are also recycled and partly reused in the manufacturing of coated cables.
