Our Team

Ben Hallman

Ben spent his early life in Texas and Connecticut. After dropping out of Gettysburg College, he drove to Austin in June of 2005 and started selling used appliances from his Dad’s one-car duplex garage. Two years later he had two stores with 25 employees selling $5m worth of machines per year. Aus-Tex Appliance became the largest discount scratch and dent wholesale appliance warehouse in Texas. Before the recession of 2009, Ben built a robust e-commerce website and became a dealer for 100+ appliance brands. It was this time that he began developing relationships with overseas manufacturers and traveling to Europe and Asia to purchase containers of machines for his new Hallman brand. Since our humble beginnings, Ben has lead us successfully for 17 years, navigating through peaks and valleys with caution and precision. Outside of the business, Ben lives an active lifestyle, and enjoys planning fun adventures with his 3 sons
