DS Brookes Ltd. renamed Davis-Standard Limited

DS Brookes Ltd, Davis-Standard’s subsidiary in the West Midlands, UK, will now be called Davis-Standard Limited. The modification is in name only, better reflecting Davis-Standard’s global market position and current activities.

Davis-Standard Limited 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 EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa) region. This includes support of aftermarket and spare parts activities across all product platforms and heritage brands under the Davis-Standard umbrella.

“The name change better aligns with Davis-Standard’s corporate uniformity in serving customers worldwide,” said Mark Woodgate, managing director of Davis-Standard Limited. “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. As such, we have appointed Jon Bourne as our service center manager. He comes to us with more than 35 years’ experience with the Gloucester, Battenfeld/Gloucester and Gloenco brands.”

Davis-Standard Limited plays an integral role in Davis-Standard’s strong global presence, supporting the EMEA region with extrusion equipment, barrel and screw production, timely customer service and regional spare parts access.

Davis‐Standard, headquartered in Connecticut, USA, is a global leader in the design, development and distribution of extrusion and converting technology. Davis‐Standard systems encompass over 10 product lines to support manufacturing applications and customers within every major industry.
