Davis-Standard, LLC had an excellent showing at the NPE 2006 international plastics exposition in Chicago, June 19 - 23, due to a large customer turnout and impressive equipment display. More than 1,000 customers visited Davis-Standard’s 9,000 square-foot booth which featured a range of equipment from both the Extrusion Systems and Converting Systems Groups, including new extruder and film technology. Davis-Standard took in more than 1,100 leads and had more than $6 million in sales during the show.
‘This was an exciting NPE for us because it was the first time our Extrusion Systems and Converting Systems Groups have exhibited together,’ said Charlie Buckley, Davis-Standard president and CEO. ‘I think we were able to share the positive dynamics of our organization and our new technology, while meeting with many existing and new customers.’
