Every unit must meet rigid standards before leaving the plant. Benchmark products are now shipped to virtually every country in the world.
Benchmark began in 1983 as the "Benchmark Sound Company", a small operation working out of a garage in Garland, Texas. The founder, Allen H. Burdick, began by building very high-performance audio equipment to meet the specialized needs of television broadcast facilities. The company quickly grew, and was incorporated as Benchmark Media Systems, March 5, 1985. Benchmark expanded into additional audio markets, and relocated to Allen's home town, Syracuse, NY. To this day, all Benchmark products are designed, assembled and tested at the Syracuse facility.
