Davis-Standard LLC has moved its accumulator-head blow molding machinery operation from Bridgewater, N.J., to a leased 20,000-square-foot facility in leased space next to its Black Clawson plant in Fulton, N.Y.
Davis-Standard, the machinery manufacturer based in Pawcatuck, Conn., has signed a lease agreement with Universal Metal Works in Fulton. Officials of both companies plan to host an open house on Oct. 2.
Davis-Standard two years ago moved its Egan blown and cast film manufacturing operation from Bridgewater to Fulton. Most recently, Davis-Standard announced Sept. 4 that it bought Gloucester Engineering Co., the maker of film equipment in Gloucester, Mass.
Company officials were not immediately available for comment, but in a news release issued Sept. 14, Floyd Backes, Davis-Standard's director of operations for New York and New Jersey locations, said: “The UMW facility is exactly what we needed in terms of space and location. We are grateful for their helping us make the Fulton expansion a reality.”
He said the space at UMW “enables us to relocate our blow molding business … supporting ongoing efforts to achieve cost-effective manufacturing and superior customer service.”
UMW Vice President John Sharkey said the collaboration “makes sense for our manufacturing operations and our customers.”
Universal Metal Works is a custom metal fabrication company, based in Fulton.
