New Haven began with a single horse-drawn wagon — please read about our history below.

Roots Run Deep.
Our long legacy of engineering innovations, manufacturing and distribution in the corrugated, packaging and moving equipment industry “has a very patriotic beginning,” explains Larry Levine, Co-President of New Haven, who, together with brothers James Levine (CEO) and Roger Levine (Co-President) manage the family business. “New Haven was founded by our grandfather, David H. Levine, who initially conceived of the company while serving in the American Expeditionary Forces in WWI. Grandfather was moved by the sight of the HMS Dreadnought, England’s now-legendary battleship, and made the decision that if he were to survive the war, serving overseas, he would develop his small business of manufacturing comforters and textiles into something more substantial and lasting.” New Haven’s distinctive logo, a silhouette of the HMS Dreadnought, came into being at that time. “Our grandfather felt that creating a logo of the Dreadnaught would serve to remind him and all those would come to work at New Haven, that service and integrity need to be at the heart of what we do. He viewed dedication and service to one’s customers to be an extension of service to one’s country, and that everything we manufactured, invented or distributed must be done with the integrity, pride and presence symbolized by the Dreadnaught and the soldiers he served with.”
Given the company’s patriotic beginnings, it is not surprising that David H. Levine stepped into gear during the Great Depression and WWII to help wherever he could. “Grandfather saw a huge need to help develop infrastructure, and so New Haven put its efforts into producing concrete curing mats for roads,” says Roger Levine. “During WWII, he then used his experience in textiles to produce not only many of our country’s iconic G.I. blankets but also camouflage nets used in both theaters of war.” David H. Levine continued his efforts towards servicing the moving industry as well, inventing and manufacturing the first machine-made furniture pad ever made in the United States.
In the 1960’s, David H. Levine turned the management of New Haven to his son, J. Paul Levine. “Our dad, J. Paul Levine, had the same devotion to country and service as our grandfather,” reflects James Levine, CEO of New Haven. “He served in the United States Air Force as a young man and worked on the development of the F101 jet fighter plane. It therefore meant a lot to him to later be the very first supplier ever awarded ‘The Distinguished Service Award’ by the American Moving and Storage Association. Our dad knew Grandfather David H. would have been proud.” Paul, along with his wife Deanie, expanded the product line of the company dramatically. In addition to producing Furniture Moving Pads and Two and Four Wheel Dollies, Paul began to manufacture and distribute innovative products for the aeronautics and entertainment industries while augmenting his lines of products for the moving and storage industry as well as for the military.
Today, New Haven Moving Equipment is managed by Paul and Deanie’s three sons James, Roger, and Larry with fifteen (15) fully-stocked locations nationwide. Over the past century, New Haven Moving Equipment has become synonymous with uncompromising quality, dedication to customer service, expertise in product development, and highly competitive pricing.
Since 1911, New Haven’s management and engineers have designed multiple “best-in-class” products (including the Dreadnaught Furniture Pad, the Slip-Pruf® dolly, the E-CRATE® and the patented Safe Haven ® Transport Securement Systems for the handicapped), and many New Haven’s products–from their uniquely durable and protective moving pads to their specialized Corrugated products to their technologically advanced Cargo Control– have come to establish their respective industry standards. We are proud to say that many of New Haven’s products are unique in the industry, both in their quality and their functionality.
“Ultimately,” as James Levine notes, “What makes our products unique is a combination of the thinking that goes into our designs—our understanding of what our customers needs based upon our years of experience—along with the fact that we stand by our products and are proud of their consistent quality. Our customers know that when they do business with us, we are with them from beginning to end, and that their success is of paramount importance to us.”
New Haven’s unequaled experience and years of product innovations allow us to offer our valued customers the very best quality and pricing. New Haven’s fifteen (15) family-owned and fully stocked distribution centers throughout the United States, welcoming open-door policy, sales and customer service teams who are dedicated to your success and individualized needs, ensure that you will be able to package, secure, store, transport and/or relocate with confidence.
