Who We Are
Davis-Standard is a global leader in the design, development and distribution of extrusion and converting technology. Our systems encompass over 14 product lines to support manufacturing applications and customers in a wide variety of industries, including automotive, building & construction, consumer products, medical, and packaging.
With more than 1,400 employees worldwide and a network of independent sales agents and suppliers in nearly every country, Davis-Standard is committed to engineering systems for you that are cost-effective, environmentally friendly, and offer a high return on investment. The company has manufacturing and technical facilities in the United States, Canada, China, Germany, Finland, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.
We exist to help you produce products that improve everyday life. Though we are removed from final production of your end products, we are central to the manufacturing of many of the world’s essential, or even life-altering, products. Many of these products would not exist without us. Like you, we take that responsibility seriously.
We believe the future is bright because it is full of promise. We’re involved in something big. The shift to an entirely new economy. A new age. Evolving demands are reshaping the way organizations compete, and stimulating a fresh wave of new thinking and product innovation. There’s nothing to limit it except for our imagination. But there is a difference between imagining something and making it real.
Practically speaking, Davis-Standard supplies polymer-processing solutions. But we’re really in the making-product-ideas-real business. It starts with our deep understanding of our customers and their needs. It continues with our ability to provide a tailored product and service solution to meet those exact needs. Ultimately though, it is because of our responsiveness to virtually every challenge that customer ideas for better products are more than just a dream. At Davis-Standard, they become reality.
We optimize our customers’ productivity and profitability by providing the best total solution (product + support). We serve our customers from a unique perspective. While our competition generally focuses on machine technology, we focus on providing the best total solution. That means, we supply the best combination of product and support services to help customers achieve their business goals.
To be globally recognized as the most customer-focused and results-driven polymer processing equipment supplier. Results for our customers and results for ourselves.
