Al Shaver in a D 6 Dozer

 

Born and raised in Shavertown Pennsylvania, he graduated from Dallas High School in 1972. Al married his high school sweetheart, Marleen Messmer, also from the Back Mountain. Together, they raised 5 children, who now range in age from 26 to 38 years, and have numerous .

 

Al has been involved in the construction industry since 1974, working for American Asphalt as a laborer before working for Coon Concrete as a concrete truck driver. He then proceeded to work in interstate transportation, hauling materials all throughout the East Coast. During the 1980’s, he drove bus for Martz Trailways. After his time at Martz, Al began developing his sales experience, when he accepted a position with AC Delco. He did considerably well, building a highly profitable sales route. 

 

In May of 1990, Al reached a major lifetime milestone, fulfilling a life-long dream as he started his own business. Enter: Shaver & Sons, Inc. In 1993, he was able to expand Shaver & Sons by purchasing a local paving company. In this acquisition, Shaver & Sons also assimilated several tri-axle dump trucks into his fleet. With the trucks, Shaver & Sons was able to haul aggregate for the companies own projects, as well as for local quarries.

 

In 2004, while searching for a larger facility to house his growing business, Al stumbled upon Dominic’s Equipment, another business venture waiting to be pursued.  In October of 2004, he was able to begin a new chapter in the heavy equipment rental industry when he purchased the property as well as all of the rental assets at Dominic's.
