History of Shaw-Box:

In 1932, the Shaw Crane Company merged with the Alfred E. Box Crane and Hoist Corporation, inventors of the first electric cable hoist. Together, the two companies continued to lead, revolutionizing the way heavy materials are handled. The LOAD LIFTER electric hoist, first pioneered in 1921, has evolved into today's legendary Series 700 and 800 wire rope hoists.

Other innovations included the first portable electric and lever-operated chain hoists, the development of built-in overload protection devices, air and worm gear hoist technology, and a wide range of advanced trolleys, bridge components, and accessories.
