In November of 1911, Benson Auto Appeared
Harold and Ray were partners. The partnership continued until Harold's death in 1957.
The dealership continued to grow with two of Harold's sons, Earl H. and Ervin E. Benson. On April 1,1958 the brothers made the declaration "As of today, we have become the new owners of Benson Auto Co., Inc. We will carry on the business at the same location with the same experienced personnel. We look forward to meeting and serving all of the customers, old and new. We will go right on offering you the best in new and used cars, and the best mechanical service." Earl and Ervin stood by their statement until the day they retired.
In 1970 it became apparent that the original building was too small and too ineffective. Plans for a new building at the same location were set into motion. On Dec 16, 1970 the new building was dedicated and the business continued to grow.
In April 1987, Earl retired and left his responsibilities to his son Jack E. Benson. Jack joined Ervin with directing the dealership onward, until Ervin's retirement in April,1993.
Now Corey Benson, Jack's son, has joined the business. As the business still showed growth, Jack and Corey expanded the business by opening another store, Benson Auto Quality Pre-Owned of Tilton, in Tilton NH in November of 2005.
With Jack retiring in 2009, Corey is now running the daily operation.Corey still strives today to be the very best in customer satisfaction, just like all the former owners did. Please stop by either location to see why we are the best Benson Auto "Let us prove it to you".
