While they were still in college, Winton Loveland and Saul Warshaw started what was to become a lifetime of friendship, work, and collaboration. After finishing college, they went to work for Saul’s father, who owned Atlantic Gum Paper, a company that made gum tape. While there, Saul and Winton invented a device that applied the tape to corrugated boxes. They called “the machine .”
In 1962, the two co-founded The Loveshaw Corporation in order to manufacture and market their invention for sealing corrugated boxes. Loveshaw quickly became the leader in its field, and today 50 years later maintains its position as the best in the industry.
