Davis-Standard LLC's United Kingdom-based subsidiary DS Brookes will be renamed to match its corporate parent.
The Brierley Hill, England-based Davis-Standard will continue supplying screws and barrels associated with the DS Brookes brand, and will remain Davis-Standard's key supplier of extrusion systems for the Europe, Middle East and Africa region.
In addition, the firm has hired Jon Bourne as its service center manager. He comes to Davis-Standard with more than 35 years' experience with the Gloucester, Battenfeld/Gloucester and Gloenco brands.
Davis-Standard managing director Mark Woodgate, said: “The name change better aligns with Davis-Standard's corporate uniformity in serving customers worldwide.
“In addition to this development, we are pleased to announce that our facility is Davis-Standard's European service center for blown film, servicing the recently acquired Gloucester Engineering product range.”
Davis-Standard purchased Gloucester Engineering Co. last year. It is headquartered in Pawcatuck, Conn., and has more than 850 employees worldwide.
