Box Components is closely associated with, and possibly managed by, Toby Henderson, a legendary BMX and mountain bike rider. On the face of it, everything about the company appears to be Californian, but the trademarks are owned by Lee Chi Enterprises of Chungua, Taiwan - so I suspect that the business is registered in the USA, but wholly owned by the Taiwanese.

Lee Chi Enterprises was founded in 1978, and is a long established supplier of brakes both as original equipment on new bikes, and as after market components under the Promax brand name.

Box Components brands a very wide range of components from forks to wheels to transmission parts. It covers both BMX and mountain bikes. Notably absent are any brake or brake related components. Box clearly does not exist to provide competition for Promax.

Box Components appears on this site because of the derailleurs that it produces. These are a distinctive design, and I believe that they are the work of John L. Calendrille Jr., who previously created the Vivo derailleurs, and subsequently contributed to the design of TRP derailleurs. One of John Calendrille's signature moves is to use a straight-ish cable run, but to mount the cable clamp on a long arm attached to the outer parallelogram plate (not the inner plate as is more usual). The Box derailleurs use this distinctive layout.
