He was also a co-owner of the Company from 1969-1988.?

Quick with a smile and a laugh, Bob will be missed.

President’s Message

Wow!? Has this year flown by!

As I begin my second year as President, I am thankful for so much and wanted to share a few thoughts as Schaeffer Electric continues to move forward.

We are now already two months in to our Fiscal Year 2013, and we’re off to a great start. Shortly, Schaeffer will begin work on a ‘spin cell’ which balances high speed turbines – one of only a few in the world. It’s unique to say the least, and we look forward to working with MD&A and Tarlton in building the facility. Vital projects for Mercy, Webster University, Elantas and others are ongoing.
