R & W is proud to be your New Local SCAG Dealer. R & W Equipment Co. was established in 1989 in the heart of Carlisle, Pennsylvania on Willow Street. R & W Equipment Co. purchased what was formerly Paul E. Shovers, Inc. (formed in 1948) and continued to operate at the Willow St. address until June 30th, 2003 when it was moved to 2510 Ritner Hwy., our current location. In 2011, Craig Elvin and Thomas Wivell founded WE Ag Partners, Inc., and purchased R&W’s business assets and continue to do business under the R&W name.
When we began, we were 6 employees strong with New Holland as our main equipment line with support from Pequea, Ingersol, Lawnboy and McCullough as well as Short Lines from Cumming’s, Bricker, Hamilton and Woodhouse.
R & W Equipment Co., today, we are Carlisle’s One Stop Shop! A dealership dedicated and tailored to servicing a wide range of customers in agriculture, industrial, commercial landscape and homeowner industries. Whether you are in the field baling hay or raking leaves in your yard, R & W Equipment Co.has the right tool for the job. New Holland is still our main line of equipment but we have added vendors to give customers the true “One Stop Shop” dealership. Still carrying the Short Lines that have been with us from the start we are now an Authorized Hustler Turf Equipment, Bush Hog, Athens, Meyer, Husqvarna, Tonutti and Pequea Dealer.
