Say hello to Alex…

We are thrilled to have recently welcomed Alex to the team, joining us in an apprenticeship role. Alex will be based in the office and supporting the team with order processing and administration. As Alex continues to learn the sales process and customer service as part of his role, he will also be mentored by our sales team and start to build relationships with our ever-expanding customer base. 

General Manager Jamie Berry said “We are so pleased to be able to offer another apprenticeship position and support local young workers in building career paths. Alex is an impressive young man, mature beyond his years and I’m thankful for the help he has already provided internally in what has been an incredibly busy period for the company.”

In his spare time, Alex enjoys playing both rugby and football at the weekends and keeps fit going to the gym throughout the week. 

When asked if he has settled into his new role, Alex confirmed “I am loving it at Benincà, everyone’s lovely and have given me such a warm welcome” we are delighted to have you on board!

A warm welcome to Sam…

We feel privileged to be in a position of expanding our team and are delighted to announce that Sam Weedon has recently joined us as Sales Administrator.

Sam studied Economics, Business, and Maths for A-Level whilst at Kennet School in 2019 and is currently completing a Level 3 Customer Service Specialist apprenticeship with The West Berkshire Training Consortium. Once again, we are proud to support The West Berkshire Training Consortium, with Sam now being our third apprentice to join Benincà UK via the scheme.

Sam brings with him so much enthusiasm and has impressed the entire team immensely with the rate at which he has already picked up product knowledge. Joining the company at an unusual time hasn’t deterred Sam, but rather allowed him to showcase his resilience and adaptability.

Outside of work, Sam is a keen rugby and football fan, supporting Arsenal, and loves nothing better than watching a good movie.

As it stands, we are not sure when you will have the pleasure of meeting Sam in person, but in the meantime, please do join us in giving Sam a warm welcome, whether that be over the telephone or email, as he settles further into his role and learns the world of Automation.

Welcoming Meg to the Beninca team…

As well as recently increasing the size of our premises, we have once again increased the size of the Beninca UK team. We’ve had the pleasure of welcoming Meg Sudlow, joining us as Administrative Assistant in early September.

Meg studied at Cours Ste Catherine de Sienne in Normandy (north of France) and then undertook a variety of different courses at Newbury College. Meg is now the third apprentice to join us via the West Berkshire Training Consortium apprenticeship scheme and we are very proud to continue to support young and local individuals into the workplace.

Meg originally showed interest in finance and is therefore being mentored here by Nadia within our Finance team but has been getting involved with a variety of different tasks across the board. Meg has already wowed us with her can-do approach, and we know she is going to go far. Based in the office, Meg can quite often be found answering our busy mainline with her friendly tone, so please do continue to give her a warm welcome.

In her spare time, Meg is a keen artist and enjoys drawing and practising her modern calligraphy skills, which she very kindly put to good use for our recent Gala Dinner event, creating a stunning table plan and name places.

If you wish to contact Meg, please see her details below:

A warm welcome to Ben…

We are continuously looking for talented individuals to join our growing team and are therefore delighted to announce Ben Mackie who joined in August as Sales Representative. Ben was seeking a new challenge from the world of PPI and with his go-getting approach and interest of the world of gate automation, Ben has made the perfect addition to the team.

Ben has already gained considerable industry and product knowledge working under both Jack Crawford, National Sales Coordinator and Jamie Berry, General Manager and once fully up to speed will be hitting the road visiting customers shortly.

Outside of work, Ben enjoys spending his time corralling his young daughter and playing on challenger 2 tanks with the Army Reserve. As an obsessive Southampton fan, Ben claims to refuse to set foot in Portsmouth, no matter how big the sales order. – We’ll see about that!

If you wish to contact Ben for any sales enquiries, you can reach him directly on:
