87 Years of Quality Adhesive Manufacturing

With Thanksgiving right around the corner we have a lot to be thankful for. We are thankful for the successful years we have had as we approach our 87th year at L.D. Davis.

A Bit of History

In 1926, the beginning, Louis D. Davis Sr. first started in the stenciling industry. He was almost put out of business quickly by 1939 when a competitor in the stenciling industry developed a new stenciling material, but thankfully he focused on manufacturing and selling their animal glue which they had started manufacturing in the early 30’s.

From there the company
continued to grow in
many industries and in
many different ways.
Now we manufacture
over 100 different
formulations of our animal
glue and lead the
adhesive industry in
many different
applications, including
book binding, laminating,
and packaging.

Continuous Improvement

Our manufacturing plant is also continuing to grow. In order to better assist our customers and suppliers, we are adding an additional 20,000 square feet of warehouse and manufacturing space onto our existing 80,000 square foot building.

With each passing year at L.D. Davis, we faced challenges in new markets and overcome success in constructing adhesives for different applications. We have a great team dedicated to our mission “building life-long bonds”

As we continue our growth, we commend our customers, distributors, suppliers and employees. We are thankful to have all of you as a part of L.D. Davis Industries. Well wishes to all and we hope you have a great Thanksgiving holiday!
