Shafer Equipment Company, Inc. is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.

The family-owned company was founded in 2003 by Jay Shafer and has since grown to become a leading provider of Link-Belt Excavator equipment.

"Twenty years is a great accomplishment and worth celebrating," Chris Wise, general manager of market development, said. "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."

That same year, Shafer placed the winning bid for Pink-Belt, benefiting $145,000 to Breast Cancer Awareness initiatives.

Shafer's anniversary celebration was held at the company's Sparks, Nev., location in June, with more than 200 fellow colleagues, employees and family members in attendance.

"It was great to see old and new friends in the business," said Shafer. "I'm proud of the growth we've accomplished over 20 years and look forward to seeing what the family will do in the future."

Shafer is excited about the successes over the years, but even more enthusiastic about the future.

The company has big plans for the next 20 years and is confident that it can achieve even more with the continued support of its customers, partners and employees.
