McShane Welding and Metal Products History

Tuesday Sep 6th, 2022

For the past 49 years, McShane Welding and Metal Products has been transforming metal into solutions for all of our customers across the United States. The company first started out as a fabrication business but eventually expanded into the laboratory, home delivery, and recycling industry. William McShane was the original founder of McShane Welding and Metal Products. Originally from Youngstown, Ohio William and his family decided to move to Erie, Pennsylvania in 1961. Upon his arrival to Erie, William found work with a structural fabricator from 1961-1973. In 1973 at the age of 53, William decided to pursue a life long dream of running his own business. William knew that Erie was in need of a plate fabrication shop so in February of 1974, he decided to open up his own shop on West 15 th Street in Erie.

My company has been using lockboxes from McShane Welding for over 6 years now and is very pleased with the product and customer service. The personnel are all friendly and go above and beyond. The boxes are great quality and our clients love them. We couldn’t be more pleased with our working relationship with McShane.

Our courier company strongly encourages the use of LabLockers. We have been a customer for over 10 years and no other metal box vendor we tried in the past compares to the quality and customer service we get at McShane. Any business in the courier industry, specifically medical samples, should consider LabLockers.

Our laboratory has been very satisfied with our choice to purchase the ESC-10 for specimen collection and transportation. This product allows us to control the temperature of the sample by offering frozen and ambient storage solutions. McShane Metal Products have always delivered their products on time while consistently offering fair pricing.
