Davis Controls Ltd. - A Look Back At 2013

  As the end of our 80th year in business successfully draws to a close, a quick look back over the last twelve months reminds us that, just like it was 80 years ago, Davis Controls Ltd. continues to be a corporate family consisting of individual domestic families and community households, each with their own story to tell.  There would be no Davis story to tell if it weren’t for the hundreds of individual, sometimes very personal stories that have contributed over the years to our corporate life.

The following announcements are just a few of the headlines posted to our HRM – NEWS page this year.

Feb. 28, 2013:  It is with a very sad heart that I have to tell you that our good friend and colleague, Joe Speer passed away peacefully this morning, just after 9:00am.

April 01, 2013: Just when we thought that Ian Mooney couldn’t surprise us any more than by moving to  the great white north, he has now just announced that he got married yesterday.  This news has caught us all by surprise, and we couldn’t be happier for Ian & Barbara.

April 12,2013:  Davis Controls Ltd is pleased to announce the appointment of Brian Dahms   to the position of Technical Account Manager for the Province of British Columbia.  Brian came to Davis Controls with 20+ years in the industrial controls field.

November 15, 2013:  Congratulations to Michael and Rachel on the birth of their son, Charlie Pantaleo.  Mom and Dad are very tired but very happy for the new addition to their family!                                                                                                                  

As the clock ticks down on 2013, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers for their business and for their support again this year.  Customers create our success by choosing Davis Controls’ quality products and services to solve real problems and every Davis employee is accutely aware of this.
