Shaw Magnets

Established 1783

Founded in 1783, Shaw Magnets is the oldest established magnet company in the world and can be found in hundreds of thousands of industrial and educational environments. If you have ever used a horseshoe magnet, it was most likely a Shaw’s.

In 2003, Shaw was taken over by Commotion Distribution and have since introduced new magnetic ranges including Pole Marbles, Floating Magnets and the Magnet Pole Finder. Shaw’s magnets, magnet accessories and consumables continue to sell successfully.
