In the link above to the discussion paper, there is a reference to Ochta Mill on pg 6 of the document and interestingly (to me) a mention of Platt Bros, Oldham, textile machinery manufacturers on page 5. Platts was a significant manufacturer and employer in Oldham up to 1970s, I think.
It may be that your Benjamin was a mechanic in the mills there rather than a spinner etc.

I agree that a firm was more likely to have sent a skilled mechanic to Russia than a spinner.
2 of my family were Platt employees.
