McShane Welding was founded and incorporated in December of 1973 by William McShane; business began operations in February of 1974. William, age 53, had worked in fabrication all his life and was previously employed at Erie Steel Products before striking out on his own. William’s business philosophy was to provide a quality product and the best service possible for his customers. Today, Jim McShane, William’s son carries on that same belief in customer service.

It All Started With Milk Boxes

The McShane Metal Products division is focused on innovation to meet the product needs of our customers and growth by building solid, long-lasting customer relationships. In 1980, McShane acquired Kartel Industries, a company that was known for milk box manufacturing in the dairy industry. Today, McShane is one of the few producers of the classic metal milk box. McShane milk boxes are available in powder coat and retro galvanized finishes. We also offer custom logo silk-screening. With the success of milk boxes, McShane expanded their product range to include lockable box solutions for medical diagnostic labs. McShane’s line of “lab lockers” provided labs and medical facilities with a secure and insulated environment to retain medical specimens and samples until pick-up by couriers. As the Lab business expanded, McShane introduced the ESC-10, a temperature controlled insulated clam shell for test tube specimens. In response to the growing concerns about the abuse of medications, McShane developed it’s line of Medical Lock lock boxes. MedLock-Rx offers individuals and businesses a safe and secure way to lock up medications while keeping them accessible enough for self-administration. As the manufacturer, McShane excels at custom manufacturing. If you do not see the right product to fit your needs, CALL US. We can custom design and build a product to your specifications. The creation of innovative and effective metal box solutions is the mission of McShane’s Metal Products division.

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.
