Shelton Plane and Tool Mfg. Co. - Shelton, CT




The Shelton Basket Company was founded in Columbia, Connecticut in 1862.  The company produced baskets for industrial, farm, and fisheries use, and later expanded into the retail market through such retailers as Marshal Fields.



In 1910 an employee, Abraham H. Lavietes bought the company.  He expended production significantly and in 1911 moved the company to Shelton, Connecticut for its better transportation system.

The company flourished and expanded its business. It diversified into other fields and opened the Shelton Plane and Tool Company. Abraham H. Lavietesí son Raymond graduated from Harvard University in 1936 and assumed an active role in the family businesses.
