Goings-On at our Animal Glue Company Meeting

Building Life Long Bonds at LD Davis

LD Davis Industries prides itself on “building life long bonds.”  These bonds are built with raw material suppliers so we can make sure we can always supply our customers with the products they need, when they need them.  These bonds are built with customers and create two-way loyalty to maintain lasting business relationships.  These bonds are also built with L.D. Davis staff members; the animal glue manufacturing company values its staff and many employees have been working for LD Davis for 10, 15, or even 20 plus years.  We must be doing something right besides making quality animal glue!
