DAC Expands Investment Through Market Downturn
DAC Products, the supplier of marketing tools for the building products industry, has taken several steps to invest in new capacity and capabilities, even as many companies have tightened belts to face the marketwide slowdown.
In the last three months, the Rural Hall, N.C.-based company has purchased and installed additional CNC routers, high volume sanders, and an additional radio frequency glue dryer, to enhance and increase its woodworking operations. Additional machines and a CNC cutting table for various materials including fabric, vinyl, and cardboard have been installed in its sewing operations as well. Additional equipment has also been purchased for printing, and logistics.
The company designs and produces point of purchase displays, fixtures, sales presentation carrying cases, large format and screen printed graphics, as well as providing warehouse services for over 250 accounts throughout North America. The latest additions represent DAC's first major investment since the company purchased the assets of 21C Retail Arts in January 2007.
“We are in the business of creating products and services that help our customers present a professional image and that continues to be the basis for our investment,” says Tony Smith, DAC president. “We are considered a one-stop-shop for many of our customers. We are very excited about this opportunity to expand our business, and the fact that we are doing this during the present business climate makes it just that much more significant.”
