Glen Shaver of Graettinger, Iowa founded Shaver
Manufacturing Company in 1944. Production began, and remains today, in
this small Northwest Iowa town with a population of only a thousand
people. Its rural location provides a long-term, stable work force that
is housed in a 30,000 square foot manufacturing facility utilizing
today's modern technology.
Shaver's original products were water tank heaters and front
end loaders for agricultural tractors. In 1955 the first post driver
was engineered and introduced, the Model HD-6. The unique concept was
quickly patented and today every post driver manufactured is a copy of
the original Shaver design.
The Shaver family owned and operated the company until 1970.
Today Shaver Manufacturing is owned by HCC, inc. This progressive
company continued to broaden and enhance fencing equipment product lines
until today the company has the most complete line of fencing equipment
in the world. As recently as 1997 Shaver introduced the Model 101, the
world's smallest post hole digger and then again in 1998 a hydraulic
side-mounted post hole digger was introduced.
"We listen to the needs of the industry and respond with the highest
quality, best built products in the world." "Then we back it up with
the finest distributor network in North America and provide replacement
parts for every post driver we've ever built." That's why Shaver
Manufacturing is SETTING THE STANDARDS IN FENCING EQUIPMENT.
