We were saddened to receive the news last week of the passing of Bob Schaeffer on May 4. Bob was the 4th oldest of the 17 Schaeffer children born to Carl and Eulalia Schaeffer. After serving in the US Navy during the Korean War, Bob joined the family company in 1955 and worked as an electrician, estimator and Service Department Manager before retiring in 1992. He was also a co-owner of the Company from 1969-1988. Bob was very dedicated to the success of Schaeffer Electric and would often stop by after his retirement just to make sure that things were running smoothly. Quick with a smile and a laugh, Bob will be missed.

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.
All the employees at Schaeffer Electric are thankful for a successful knee surgery for Laura Hoeing yesterday. She will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers for a quick and painless recovery. We can’t wait to have you back Laura!
