box pushers; screwdriver guys
Explanation:
Boxenschieber may actually be a direct translation of _box pusher/s_ for firms providing only hardware (in boxes) and at best rather basic hardware services, not total solutions. If you prefer, _screwdriver guys_ sometimes appears as a synonym

Incidentally, some dictionaries translate (German) Box into (English) loudpeaker or terminal, but neither of these is particularly applicable here.
