Some information about The Brixworth Engineering Company

Benco LogoWe are a family owned company who, since 1962, have provided confidential engineering services to a variety of industries including the demanding Aerospace and Automotive markets..

The founder of the company designed and built the original Benco engine stand which has now evolved into an extensive range after listening to the varied needs of managers and engineers. This long term experience has enabled us to produce rugged, cost effective stands that make engine manufacturing and repair faster, easier and much safer.

These products combine ease of operation with complete safety of load manipulation, while providing maximum access to supported workpieces for production assembly projects as well as general service and repair operations. The original engine stand design was easily modified to accommodate other power train products including gearboxes and transmissions, and over time has also been successfully adapted for a varied range of other industrial workpieces including aero wing assemblies, excavator buckets, oil exploration drill bits, precious metal ingot moulds, sailing craft, pre-fabricated buildings and many other applications too diverse to list in full.

The Benco product range has been developed considerably over the years and now enjoys a worldwide reputation for the ease, simplicity and safety offered for the rotational handling of heavy, out-of-balance loads with the added benefit of backlash-free movement. The convenience and accessibility provided by our equipment ensures maximum production efficiency, while the ease of movement and safety when handling heavy loads also complies with the highest level of regulations covering industrial working practices.

Benco engine stands are widely used in the UK and throughout the world by engine manufacturers including:- Cosworth, Cummins, Daimler-Chrysler, Ford, Ilmor, Jaguar, Komatsu, Lister Petter, MAN, and Perkins.

Our engine stands, welding positioners, gearboxes and other load manipulators are also used by such diverse companies as: -Aggreko, British Aerospace, Castrol, Federal Mogul, Lubrizol, Ricardo Consulting, Short Bros, Voith and ZF Gearboxes.
