Jay and his team have a customer comes first attitude and they treat all their clients as friends. Watching Jay and the rest of the Shafer staff welcome their customers and really celebrate them as the driver of their success and longevity was a real honor to witness. We have complete confidence in the team that Jay is leading Shafer Equipment’s next 20 years of success!”

Among its many achievements, Shafer received the Triple Crown Award from Link-Belt Excavators in 2020.
