Tribute Customer Spotlight: Behco-MRM

Behco-MRMBehco-MRM, Inc., headquartered in eastern Michigan, is a quad-technology distributor and integrator providing motion control solutions with pneumatic, hydraulic, electro-mechanical, and collaborative robotic technologies.

Founded in 1964 Behco, Inc. began as a stocking distributor of both pneumatic and hydraulic components.

Behco-MRM Grows Through Acquisition and Diversification

In 2006 Behco, Inc. was purchased by H&P Technologies, a diversified industrial distributor and service and repair company. The company is now operated as Behco-MRM, a division of H&P Technologies. In 2009 H&P Technologies purchased the assets of the Don Blackburn Co. and integrated the business into the Behco division which expanded their product offerings and capabilities in the area of motion control and automation products.

In 2011, H&P Technologies purchased MRM, Inc., and merged its operation into Behco making them one of the premiere fluid power and motion control distributors in Michigan. With their technical sales staff, application engineering department, and integration and manufacturing capabilities, their goal is to be a value-added partner to their customers. Behco-MRM has also opened a second branch in Western Michigan.
