Founded in 1824 by Captain Lester Crandall, Ashaway began trading fishing line. In addition, he also invented and developed various types of line machine.

In 1939, Ashaway launched the first commercial nylon product under the name of DuPont, a fishing line. Then the search for a suitable purpose for this new material began. A decade later, Ashaway began making racket strings at Rhode Island factories. In the years that followed, Ashaway continued to innovate and, among other things, the new materials Dacron and Kevlar were developed. In 2009, the still very famous Zymax badminton strings were introduced with the revolutionary ZyWeave core technology. At the time, the Zymax 62 was the thinnest badminton string ever made.

Two years later, the first squash string was also released. Today Ashaway is also engaged in the development and sale of hybrid strings and there is a very wide range of high-quality strings. There are various distributors worldwide who sell the Ashaway brand and many professional players also enjoy using Ashaway strings.
