Lowing Products is a part of Lowing Light & Grip,
Inc., located in Wyoming, Michigan, a suburb of Grand Rapids. Company Owner David Lowing
developed the Shot Bag design we use while working professionally as a gaffer and grip
in the local and regional filmed entertainment business.
While working on the design for the movies, Dave saw that the materials used in
fabrication, the design, and the care he and his team took in the assembly process, all
supported the use of the Shot Bags in industries that demanded precision and
consistency. Technology and engineering companies began to call on Lowing Products for
standard Shot Bags, and for customized products. We are only too happy to oblige.
Today, Lowing Products manufacturers the Shot Bags, as well as Apple Boxes, French
Flags, and other products for the filmed entertainment business. Adam Boeskool manages
the Shot Bags product line and will be your primary point of contact. Ask him about the
standard bags, the 0.001-ounce tolerance bags, or any other custom labeling, coloring,
or design you might need.
