History of H.C. Davis Manufacturing Company

The Davis family has designed and built Heavy Duty Reliable Equipment for four generations. It all started in 1894 when H.C. Davis established the H.C. Davis Machinery Company to sell grinding equipment to the milling industry. For the full family history, please read:

A small excerpt is below:

The business continued to grow and in time he built an office and machinery warehouse to store his growing inventory of new and used machinery. Just as he began to do rather well, for some unknown and never explained reason, the company he had represented for many years cut the commission they had always paid him in half. In later years my grandfather was to refer to this as an “intolerable act” and he noted with some degree of smugness that a few years after this the company was in bankruptcy. At the time his only concern was survival. He reacted by adding a manufacturing area to his office and warehouse. The name was changed to the H. C. Davis Manufacturing Company.


We continue to strive to honor the legacy of H.C. Davis by treating each customer with respect and honesty. And by working hard to design and build each piece of equipment to suit the customer’s application and provide years of dependable service.
