The electric atmosphere of K 2022 resounded at Davis-Standard’s exhibit with meaningful customer interactions, hundreds of quality leads, and multiple customer orders! Davis-Standard’s team reported a high level of excitement throughout the show, with customers arriving to discuss new projects, industry trends, and active participation in Davis-Standard’s live demonstrations of new technology, such as DS Activ-Check™ and the EDI® Prodigi die.
“This K show was exceptional in terms of foot traffic, customer engagement, and the synergy among our Davis-Standard team from different locations,” said Giovanni Spitale, Davis-Standard‘s President and CEO. “The opportunity to engage meaningfully and in person with so many of our customers was simply wonderful. We are thrilled and humbled to participate in this year’s K show in such a big way.”
Davis-Standard’s team reported significant interest in equipment for composite and micro-duct tubing lines for heating and plumbing, EV battery tempering pipes and hoses, greater automation for irrigation lines, sheet for EPET and multi-layer processes, and BOPP films, among others.
