Davis-Standard welcomed Rep. Joe Courtney (D-Conn.) on Aug. 19 during his visit to the company’s headquarters in Pawcatuck, Connecticut.

Courtney and congressional staff member Taijah Anderson visited the site to learn more about Davis-Standard’s technology, economic impact of the region and the upcoming expansion of the Pawcatuck facility.

“Davis-Standard has an impressive operation, and it was an honor to tour the facility in Pawcatuck,” Courtney says. “The cleanliness of the machining floor, advanced manufacturing practices and employee engagement is really something to behold. We’re very proud of Davis-Standard and the strong economic boost they continue to provide to southeastern Connecticut.”

Davis-Standard president and CEO Jim Murphy and other leadership provided an overview and tour of the company, offering insight into its global growth, plant specifics and diverse equipment portfolio.

“We enjoyed Congressman Courtney’s visit and appreciate his support of the manufacturing industry,” Murphy says. “Last year, Congress enacted an R&D tax credit. This has been beneficial in helping us further our technological advancements. We also appreciate the congressman’s support of the Pawcatuck expansion, which will house manufacturing capabilities for our growing blown film business.”
