A. Schrader started making diving helmets during the mid 19th Century in New York. By the end of the century, their name had changed to A. Schrader & Son in New York. During this time, numerous types and styles of diving helmets were being made along with other diving-related equipment. The company modified its name slightly to A. Schrader's Son during the beginning of the 20th Century. Not long after this change, there was another slight name change, which was A. Schrader's Son Inc.  During World War 2 and slightly before, the company became a division of the Scovill Manufacturing Company. After the war, the company was bought and was then renamed Craftsweld Commercial Helmet. If you have a helmet made by any of the incarnations of the A. Schrader Company, please let us know. You might be surprised just how much we can pay!
