SAN ANTONIO, Texas — Lockhart’s Braune Air Conditioning & Heating has merged with Shafer Services Plus, headquartered in San Antonio. Founder David Braune, who has served Lockhart for more than 40 years, chose Shafer because of the organization’s longevity and ability to expand service offerings.  

“As we all know, Lockhart is growing and the community is thriving,” said David Braune. “To keep up with the growth in this area, we have made the exciting decision to partner with Shafer Services Plus. The values, customer service, and quality of work that Shafer provides aligns with how we have done business for years. Plus, Shafer also offers plumbing services which is a convenient and important addition.”

This merger allows Shafer Services Plus to expand its service area along the IH35 corridor and into South Austin. David and his team will join forces with Shafer and continue to serve the region. Merging with Shafer is bringing 24/7 service, as well as plumbing, refrigeration, and indoor air quality services, to Braune customers in the expanding Lockhart area.  

“For decades, Braune and Shafer have had a mutual respect for one another’s history, skills, and dedication to putting customers first,” said Alison Lange, president of Shafer Services Plus. “Being able to unite our teams brings opportunities that are critical as we grow to serve this region.”

The Shafer family has been serving the San Antonio community for over 135 years. Today, Shafer Services Plus is growing beyond San Antonio and serves more than 8,500 residential and commercial customers.
