Blaw-Knox was formed in 1917 by the merger of Blaw Steel Construction Company and Knox pressed Steel Company in Hoboken, Pennsylvania. Blaw-Knox quickly expanded both in the US and the UK setting up operations in London in 1921 selling concrete mixers, tractors, excavators and concrete batch plants to high-profile civil engineering projects. By 1929, Blaw-Knox was an established manufacturer of concrete pavers, asphalt finishers, and bull dozers with operations in Watford, England and Hoboken, Pennsylvania later re-named “Blawnox, PA.”
Today, Blaw-Knox is a leading manufacturer of asphalt pavers to the road and highway construction industry. For over a century, Blaw-Knox has worked with highway contractors in innovating technologies that have shaped highway construction standards and transformed the paving process worldwide.
