A LITTLE MORE ABOUT US...
The William J. Shaw Company was founded October 15, 1961 by the late W. J. "Bill" Shaw (1914-1997). His son Drake joined him in 1977. Jim Parker joined the Shaw Company in 1981, and until his retirement in 2005, acted as a valued partner and integral part of the company. Jeff Gibbs joined the company as partner effective January 3, 2005, adding important dynamics to the sales team.

The Shaw Company prides itself in being “distributor friendly” through its increasing efforts to contact end users (factories, construction job sites, and utilities) with representatives of our customer base.

Constant promotion of our principals’ products through electronic media, flyers, open house opportunities, and trade show co-operation also is an important feature of our agency.
