Shook and Fletcher Supply Company
The Shook and Fletcher Supply Company is a privately-held company that sells mining equipment, parts and supplies. The company was founded in 1901 by former Tennessee Coal and Iron Company employee Paschal Green Shook and John F. Fletcher. It is currently headquartered at 1041 11th Court West in the East Thomas neighborhood of Birmingham.
Wayne Killion, Sr bought the company in 1967. His son, Wayne, Jr, took over as president and CEO in 2000. In 2002 the Shook and Flethcer Insulation Company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, pouring millions of dollars into a trust from which 80,000 then-active asbestos-related lawsuit settlements could be drawn.
