Schaffer Industries is the unofficial name given to three local corporations headed by Allen W. Schaffer.

One of the corporations, Union Construction Company, is engaged in underground construction and commercial dewatering. During the years the facility has expanded until activities of the corporation extend not only in Michigan but to Ohio, Indiana and Illinois.

Founded in 1951, the corporation conducts the business which Mr. Schaffer executed by himself prior to that time.

Schaffer Lumber Company was founded in 1945 and operates retail lumber yards in both Manchester and Jackson, Michigan.

Manchester Ready Mix Company was founded in 1954 and furnishes Ready Mix Concrete within a 15-mile radius of Manchester.

The three corporations employ approximately 50 people.
