Benchmark's Brian Hofacre on TV at "Home Show Today"


On Thursday, April 12, Benchmark Co-owner Brian Hofacre
appeared on "Good Day Sacramento,"  CW31.
The local program was visiting the Home Show Today store
in Fairfield, CA where Benchmark shares a display space
with Inclinator Company of California.  

Comic relief was provided when the reporter,
Brian and Robert Boardman of ICOC all squeezed into the
Pnuematic Vacuum Elevator and overloaded it!

Benchmark Home Elevator celebrates significant anniversary

On November 8, 2012, we celebrated 5 years of being in business for
ourselves!  In typical Benchmark fashion, we celebrated the day by
working our tails off.  Brian and I have now been installing home
elevators and accessibility equipment for nearly half our lives - since
1991, and I can say with certainty that these last five have been by
far the most challenging as well as the most rewarding.  I am most
thankful that we didn't know what a poor showing the economy had in
store for us - if we had, our skepticism would have kept us from the
success we have enjoyed.  My only regret is not starting even earlier!

2012 has been our best year by leaps and bounds and we are looking
forward to an even stronger 2013.  Many thanks to our great customers!

Benchmark installs a couple or truly special Hawle stairlifts.

On April 17, 2013, Benchmark Home Elevator installed its first Hawle curved rail stairlift in San Francisco, CA.
We were approached by Precision Stairlifts, the US distributor of Hawle stairlifts to sell and install  the Hawle in Northern
California in 2012.  Early in 2014, we installed a couple that were truly special.  An outdoor unit in Corte Madera that
travels over 80 feet, and a double spiral, two-story job in the Marina district of San Francisco that fit like an absolute
glove.   Click on the picture to the right to see more!
