At Benchmark, it's hard to miss one thing: our tagline "When it Matters," which is proudly proclaimed everywhere. It's a phrase we came up with ourselves. But what does it actually mean? "When it Matters" is about the products we make and the way we treat our employees. Many of our customers provide products that save lives or protect the men and women in the military. This could be in the form of wearable medical technology that monitors vital functions, or encrypted communications equipment that keeps soldiers' messages and audio out of the hands of enemies. These complex solutions must be designed, developed and manufactured to the highest quality standards and that is where Benchmark excels. When it matters or “When it Matters”.

At Benchmark, we are committed to increasing our commitment to sustainability across our business. We believe that we must take our stakeholders into account in our daily activities. On February 27, 2023, we proudly announced the publication of our annual Sustainability Report, highlighting the results of our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) initiatives in 2022 and our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) goals and shared greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions.
