About Us

Home / About Us

Shaw-Newman is a well established manufacturers’ representative for RF/Microwave components/subsystems and power conversion products in the states of Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky and Western Pennsylvania. Formed in 2002, we are focused and structured for design-ins to key OEMs in the territory and have partnered with select manufacturers to bring market leading technology and solutions to our customers.

We have a rich and extensive background in cultivating RF/Microwave component and subsystem sales in our territory since 1988.  The principal owners, Mike Shaw and Jim Newman, began their sales careers  with M/A-COM as Field Sales Engineers in the Fort Wayne Field Office.  Leaving in 1993 to form and build a rep firm called CHAS Group, Mike and Jim quickly expanded the business to include multiple offices and broadened the  offering of products beyond RF/Microwave technologies.

As market conditions changed in early 2000’s, Mike and Jim sold their ownership in CHAS Group to a third partner in 2002 and formed Shaw-Newman with a vision to narrow the focus back to RF/Microwave components and power conversion products.  Beginning with a select few market leading manufacturers, Shaw-Newman has since strengthened our offering with a portfolio of premier manufacturers providing products and technologies that reach into today’s rapidly expanding wireless markets.   In June 2015, we opened our first satellite office in Columbus, Ohio to provide local design and sales support to our customers in the Ohio and Western Pennsylvania regions.
