Benico Limited, an insurance and employee benefits firm, will hold an open house Tuesday at its new Huntley office, which happens to be one of the town's oldest buildings.

Benico has purchased the "Cook" building at 11715 Main St. The building dates back to 1893 when it was built by Ed Cook, who was county coroner at the time. Prior to Benico, the building was owned by Centegra and used as a medical center.

The 2,850-square-foot building was extensively remodeled before Benico took occupancy. A portion of the building is being rented out to Glory Gifts Unlimited.

Benico is a nearly 20-year-old firm which has moved from Arlington Heights to Hoffman Estates, and most recently was located in Hampshire. Benico President John Garven is a Huntley resident and said he wanted to move the firm closer to home.

Tuesday's open house will take place from 4 to 7 p.m. A ribbon-cutting ceremony is scheduled for 5 p.m. Huntley officials and business leaders are expected to attend.
