Behco, 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. The change to new and aggressive ownership in 1987 initiated the change from simply providing components to a full service pneumatic, hydraulic, lubrication, motion control, automation and robotic distributor and integrator with in-house engineering and manufacturing capabilities.
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.
Also that year, Behco-MRM upgraded technology by investing in TrulinX by Tribute, Inc. and subsequently earned the Tolomatic Top Distributor of the Year in 2012 and Top 10 Distributor in 2013.
