The Interns Tour Davies

Posted by Jenny DuPrey, Marketing Manager at Davies Molding

Jul 13, 2018 10:17:00 AM

The Heico Companies interns recently took a tour of the Davies Molding plant to learn how our knobs and handles are manufactured. Geared up in closed toe shoes and safety glasses, they saw the molding process firsthand. The tour, given by Derran Smith and Jenny DuPrey, was rich with manufacturing knowledge applicable to the interns. It was a great opportunity for them to see the products that are made in the industry they are a part of this summer.

Jacqueline DeWitt, the Marketing Intern for Davies Molding, was excited to show her fellow interns where she's been working for the past few weeks. After the tour, she asked them what they thought of Davies:

“I was truly fascinated by the variety of methods with which Davies manufactures their products. However, I was most impressed with how well they are keeping pace with increasingly sophisticated prototyping technology like 3D printing.” - Preston Chloupek, Executive Finance Intern for Pettibone LLC

“I loved interacting with the materials produced by Davies Molding’s and seeing what great detail is put forth during the production stages. Being a consumer, it is rare to see an item before it is completely polished so I found this new perspective to be very fascinating.” - Jermell Shackelford, Finance Intern for The Heico Companies Mergers and Acquisitions.

We always look forward to giving the interns a tour of our plant. We had a great time teaching them about the manufacturing process and we hope they enjoyed learning what Davies is all about.
