Shiffler Equipment Sales, Inc. was founded over forty years ago as a family owned business by William ("Bill") Shiffler, a former schoolteacher, to provide parts and services to the educational market. Today, Shiffler remains a privately held company, led by an experienced industry management team that includes our co-founder John W. Shiffler, who has been actively involved with the operations for the past 32 years.
Our continued goal is to provide the most comprehensive line of products, parts, services and savings to our customers in the educational market. Today we serve over 150,000 customer relationships primarily in the K-12, secondary markets, state and federal agencies, non-profit youth oriented organizations and church markets. We are committed to introducing new solutions and expanding our overall market presence in the educational, health care, government, retail and industrial market segments.
We proudly represent over 300 of the highest quality vendor and OEM brands that allow us to provide over 14,000 products, parts and services in twelve key product categories: furniture, glides & casters, restrooms, lockers, visual boards & accessories, classroom accessories, buildings & grounds, custodial supplies, energy efficient technology, safety & security and installation services.
We ship over thirty-three thousand packages annually from our twenty-seven thousand square foot corporate headquarters in Chardon, Ohio and we operate as a National Distributor and online catalog solutions provider with a field sales and service force covering North America.
In addition, we perform hundreds of on-site facility assessments each year to help facilities design and refurbish their restrooms, cafeterias and lockers. In our continued effort to provide significant cost saving solutions to our customers, in 2014 we introduced our new lighting division. This division is designed to help schools and other market customers assess their use of eco-friendly lighting and help them convert to more efficient and environmentally friendly forms of indoor and outdoor lighting, significantly reducing their annual operating costs.
We strive to earn our customers' trust as a reliable source for providing great solutions at the best overall price, and give customers piece of mind that Shiffler has been delivering quality parts and ongoing service since 1972.
