Shaw Development® is proud of its heritage. Currently owned by the third generation of Shaws, the company traces its roots through successful companies, challenging industries and great forbearers.
Frank Shaw started the first Shaw company in 1944. Shaw Metal Products was a New York based machine shop supporting the military through the end of World War II and the burgeoning regional aerospace market.
Shaw Development® also successfully utilized aerospace refueling technology to make dramatic improvements in ground vehicle fast fueling systems. Historically, ground vehicle refueling systems utilized a simple float system that would cause pressure to build in the fuel tank. This lead to countless burst fuel tanks and/or over-filling the tanks wasting the fuel that spilled on the ground. Shaw Development’s® innovative solution introduced a pressure less refueling system that enabled the market to also innovate and move to composite rotationally molded fuel tanks. With broad appeal, Shaw has subsequently converted the majority of the OEM market to pressure-less refueling systems.
At a critical time of need for the country, Shaw Development® developed a ballistic proof fuel system for an MRAP (mine resistance armor protected) program. Stemming the loss of life of US soldiers fighting was a paramount priority. These vehicles were effective at eliminating the deaths caused by roadside IEDs in that environment. Shaw Development’s® fuel system was critical in supporting that mission.
