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.
The McShane Metal Products division helped the company focus on business opportunities while building solid, long lasting customer relationships. In 1980, McShane bought out Kartel Industries, a company that was known for milk box manufacturing in the dairy industry. McShane is one of the few producers of classic Milk Boxes today, offering powder coat and galvanized finishes as well as custom logo silk-screening. Along with acquiring Kartel Industries, McShane began to manufacture products used by medical diagnostic labs. This led to the development of the ESC-10 product line used for temporary storage of previously collected blood and urine samples, adding flexibility to diagnostic courier services. Lab Lockers were created to compliment the ESC-10 product by providing a means for medical samples awaiting pick-up to be secure and efficient. The newest addition to the Metal Products line is Medical Lockers, offering individuals and businesses a safe and secure way to lock up their medications while keeping them accessible enough for self-administration. If you do not see the right product to fit your needs we can custom make a product to your specifications. The creation and modifications of these core products makes up the Metal Products division.
More recently, due to the increase in online shopping and e-commerce, McShane Metal Products have designed a series of Heavy Duty Package Delivery Lock Boxes to meet demands with the changing market. McShane’s Delivery drop boxes are an effective solution to keep your important deliveries secure and look great on a front porch or to an office complex or any communal delivery area.
All of McShane Metal Products are manufactured in house and sold directly to customers at a fraction of the price our competitors charge. We provide customer service from order placement to delivery and every step along the way. McShane Metal Products prides itself on being large enough to meet the needs of our customers yet small enough to give personal service and support necessary to provide a pleasant buying experience. Whether the customer buys one or one hundred, McShane values their business.
A Little About Jim…
McShane Welding was founded and incorporated in December of 1973 by William McShane; business began operations in February of 1974. Will, 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.
Jim started his career in the shop while he was taking time off from Gannon University where he was pursuing a degree in Accounting. In 1983, after five years of fitting and welding experience, Jim moved into the office to learn project management and estimation. By 1993, Jim had spent five years managing the company through experience and knowledge. Jim also made plans to move McShane to a larger facility that would combine all the production of the two previous buildings under one roof, adding convenience and consistency to operations.
With the changing dynamics of market conditions Jim has maintained McShane Welding’s flexibility while focusing on the basic philosophy of his father. McShane Welding has added equipment, management systems, and personnel to reflect the best possible workforce in an ever changing economic time to provide a positive work environment and better serve our customers. In the future, Jim hopes to be a resource to his customers by providing innovated ideas and solutions to their business difficulties.
Our team is critical in maintaining our position as a leader in the industrial metal fabrication industry. We work closely with customers and employees to ensure your experience working with McShane Welding is beneficial to your business and ours. Maintaining the relationships we have, both personal and professional, and building new ones is the goal of each employee from the shop floor to the office.
