Does your workbench system pull its weight around your body shop?

Post by Pat O'Neill, July 26, 2019, Uncategorized

Shure Manufacturing workbench systems have been providing workbench and tool storage requirements for any shop environment for over 75 years. Whether you are in the market for a teardown bench, pre-configured workstation or custom solutions to outfit your state-of-the-art facility, turn to Chesapeake Automotive Equipment for all of your workbench system needs.

We are a proud distributor of Shure Manufacturing workbench systems, not only because they are a leading manufacturer of high-quality, professional workbenches, tool storage, storage cabinets, transmission benches, technician carts, service cabinets, and various shop equipment, but because they truly stand the test of time.

Recently, Shure Manufacturing workbench systems were put to the test with a Georgia School District school bus undergoing repair.

The Georgia School District transportation service department encountered a lift malfunction caused by a short in the lift control box causing one side of the lift to raise while unmanned.

Employees had gone home for the weekend only to arrive the following week to find the bus had been raised 3 feet before tipping over and landing on two Shure benches, a ShureShop® Workbench and a Tear Down Bench.

Together the two Shure benches caught the 26,000 lb. bus before it landed on the concrete shop floor. Bruce Clark, Director of Transportation for the Georgia School District was amazed by the strength of the workbenches.


“If a bus falls onto the concrete floor and the roof supports are bent or destroyed, the bus is considered totaled.  Your benches saved us from buying a new bus, which is around $90,000.  We will definitely be ordering more of your benches!”

“It was amazing to see your benches hold the 26,000lb. bus for almost 36 hours.”

                                                   -Bruce Clark, Director Of Transportation


The misfortunate event is a true testament to the quality of Shure Manufacturing workbench systems.
