Ben was the inspiration behind the dream. Teaming up with his wife, Jean, they took on the biggest challenge of their lives. He wanted to create a reliable manufacturing company that provided quality equipment to leading aerospace companies like David Clark & Gentex Corporation. His work experience at Bendix, Electro-Voice and Gentex paved the way for Acousticom’s foundation as long-term military contractor & business. A year after the doors opened, his dream was cut short due to an untimely death. He poured countless hours into making Acousticom a reality. Benjamin’s legacy lives on through Acousticom Corporation and his family.

In loving memory of Benjamin Thomas Cochran (1933-1981)
