Davis-Standard LLC, Pawcatuck.Conn., has acquired Brampton Engineering, a global supplier of complete blown film systems that include “pancake”-style coextrusion dies, air rings, winders, control systems, and a variety of other products. Terms were not disclosed. 

“We are pleased to welcome Brampton Engineering with their globally recognized blown film technology to our team,” said Jim Murphy, Davis-Standard president and CEO. Murphy added, “Brampton Engineering’s focus on customer support, technology and its employees align well with the values of Davis-Standard.”

Noted Gary Hughes, CEO of Brampton Engineering, “Davis-Standard is a global leader in plastic extrusion technology and we are proud to join their team.
