Scott-Gallaher CEO Ron Scott will remain with Stafford as a senior vice president. “We're very excited about becoming a part of Stafford's team,” said Scott. “I've been watching Stafford's activities across the region and know that they are very serious about providing quality machines and backing them up with a strong parts and service commitment.”
