Shaw Brothers began with two brothers, two employees, one backhoe and a handshake-and it began with the same principles that it lives by today: work hard, satisfy the customer, and respect the people you work with. Since then Shaw Brothers Construction has grown into one of Southern Maine's largest earthwork contractors, with more than 200 employees and hundreds of pieces of equipment. Having completed over 800 commercial projects ranging from $5 thousand to $15 million and spanning a roughly 100-mile radius around Portland, Maine, Jon and Dan continue to schedule and direct day-to-day operations.
