Welcome to the Shaw Development Blog

Welcome. The goal of this blog is to engage you in an ongoing online dialog about the work we do at Shaw and how we can help you with your organization’s fluids management needs, as well as addressing industry topics of interest to all of our potential clients in general. We hope that by maintaining a thought-provoking resource such as this, you’ll keep us in mind when considering a reliable partner to work with as you meet future challenges. Let’s take a moment first, though, to introduce ourselves.

Shaw Development LLC® is the descendant of a machine shop Frank Shaw founded in 1944 to serve the booming aircraft industry, Shaw Metal Products. That company evolved into Shaw Aero Devices after World War II, when Mr. Shaw developed a series of revolutionary aircraft fuel caps that set new industry standards in aviation safety. Over the years, Mr. Shaw expanded the business into other aviation-safety areas and automotive industry applications. Even now, Shaw Development produces caps, adapters, fast fill refueling systems and fluid management systems for military, commercial and industrial heavy-duty ground vehicles worldwide. Our products today can be found in markets ranging from military vehicles, on-road work trucks, construction, mining and agricultural vehicles, and even high-end motorcycles, automobiles and space vehicles.

Shaw began designing and producing expandable rubber plugs in the Eighties. This area of the business grew into a product line featuring more than 250 standard sizes along with several hundred custom designs, sealing virtually any fluid opening in a variety of industries. The company thinks its ability to offer cost-effective custom designs, along with a variety of standard sizes and styles, establishes Shaw as an industry leader. Today, located in our state-of-the-art design and manufacturing facility in Bonita Springs, Fla., our staff focuses on innovative turn-key fuel, hydraulic and Diesel Emissions Fluid system-level solutions.

All through the long history of Shaw Development, we believe that one ideal in particular has consistently guided our business philosophy: a commitment to quality. To better serve our customers, we have dedicated ourselves to providing the highest level of excellence to the design, engineering and manufacturing of every product we deliver. We are fully certified as an ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 company, in recognition of our commitment to global quality management standards. That ongoing commitment over half a century is what, we think, has separated us from our competitors in the minds of our clients.

We are always available for any questions you may have about our services and encourage you to contact us with any problems you may be having in the field of fluids management for innovative and custom, quality solutions.
