In the fall of 1991, Davies Molding moved to a suburb of Chicago, Carol Stream, Illinois where it is located today in an 99,000 square foot facility. The facility houses forty-five (45) thermoset compression molding machines, five (5) thermoset injection molding machines and twenty-four (24) thermoplastic injection molding machines, all ranging in tonnage from 20 to 500 tons. They specialize in insert compression molding and insert injection molding. Also on premises are secondary or finishing machines, which are capable of drilling, tapping, set screw assembly, pad printing, hot stamping, branding, engraving, bagging, and sand blasting.
The once small plastic molding company that stood in downtown Chicago is now the largest manufacturer of plastic knobs and handles in the world today. A Davies' knob or handle can be found on countless products including industrial machinery, lighting equipment, lawn & garden equipment, power tools, cookware, barbecue grills, food processing equipment, medical & lab equipment, electronic equipment, fitness & recreational equipment, and more. Although Davies Molding is well known for its standard knobs, handles and cases, did you know they also have extensive custom molding capabilities? They mold butterfly seat valves and frac balls for the oil and gas industry, as well as automotive, food service equipment, HVAC, lighting, and electrical custom plastic parts.
