US machinery company Davis-Standard has leased a facility from Universal Metal Works (UMW) in Fulton, N.Y., to house the company’s blow moulding business. The new facility is located next door to Davis-Standard’s existing Fulton plant, where it makes blown and cast film lines and that was moved from Bridgewater to Fulton. A grand opening celebration hosted by Davis-Standard and UMW will be held on Friday, October 2. UMW is a custom metal fabricator.

“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,” said Floyd Backes, Davis-Standard’s Director of Operations for New York and New Jersey locations. “This enables us to relocate our blow moulding business from Bridgewater, N.J., to Fulton, supporting ongoing efforts to achieve cost effective manufacturing and superior customer service.”

The 20,000 sq-ft facility housing Davis-Standard’s blow moulding manufacturing is nearing completion and will be fully functional by October. In addition to housing Davis-Standard, UMW will be using another part of this facility to accommodate its growing business.

“This has been a win-win for both of our companies and for Fulton’s economy,” said John Sharkey, Vice President of UMW. “It’s an example of a collaborative effort between two industry leaders that makes sense for our manufacturing operations and our customers.”

Davis-Standard supplies accumulator head systems for a variety applications including automotive parts, packaging and consumer products.
