Benchmark is a "real" manufacturer not a marketing company. We have more capacity, technology and authenticity than almost any other manufacturer of flame resistant clothing in the United States. If you have a need or an idea, that involves flame resistant technology, we can help you.
YOUR BRAND (PRIVATE LABEL) If you can't beat them join them….come join us! Benchmark manufactures and "private labels" FR clothing for many customers. Sometimes it can be as easy as adding a customer's custom label, other times we develop clothing based on design and fit requirements. We are the manufacture of both the fabric and garments which allows us to offer a multiple listing of our UL certifications and arc flash testing, making your FR brand a high quality, code compliant product with a decade of testing and experience behind it. All private label FR clothing is individually serialized, offering the same traceability of Benchmark FR products. Private label manufacturing is available for both Made in the USA and imported flame resistant clothing. All private label client names and products are held in strict confidence.
O.E.M (Original Equipment Manufacturer)Over the years we have helped design and develop components for other manufacturers. One example is an antistatic, flame resistant ducting with a 90 degree below for a fan manufacturer. If you have a unique need we may be able to help. All development work in done is strict privacy.
INVENTNecessity is the mother of all invention. Some of the best ideas have come from confidential conversations with people who live and work in the trenches. If you have a an idea you believe will solve a problem for your work crew, we can help bring it to life. If you wish to seek patent protection on in the future we will gladly sign a nondisclosure agreement and help you develop and bring your passion to market.
FABRIC DEVELOPMENTWe have developed specialty fabrics for specific and unique needs. One example is flame resistant & waterproof material for FR leg gaiters. Another more complex example would be the development of a Hi-Visibility, rip-stop, arc resistant, flash fire resistant and lightweight fabric for an underground mining company. If you have a unique need, talk to us, we can help design and manufacture a custom solution for you.
CUSTOM COLOR If you or your customer have a need for a custom color we can help make it happen. Just ask! We can pretty much make any color in the spectrum and pride ourselves on color accuracy and consistency.
CUSTOM SIZES We have made 3X-Small to 10X-Large and almost everything between. If you have a need for a custom fitting FR we can help make code compliant and custom clothing to fit. The easiest way is to for you to send us a "like" garment which we measure, create a custom pattern and then manufacture your custom fit FR. By a "like" garment we mean if you want a button up shirt, simply send us your favorite non-FR button front shirt. Within a week we will send it back unharmed after taking its specifications. A few weeks later three sets of you soon to be favorite FR clothing will arrive at your door!
