Davis-Standard achieves Operation Clean Sweep certification

Davis-Standard, a leading manufacturer of extrusion and converting technologies, has achieved Operation Clean Sweep (OCS) certification, becoming the first plastics machinery manufacturer to earn this distinction.

This certification demonstrates the company’s commitment to preventing plastic pellet (resin) loss and contributing to a cleaner environment, setting a new benchmark for environmental sustainability in the plastics industry.

Reducing plastic pollution

OCS is an international programme designed to help plastics industry companies implement good housekeeping and pellet containment practices. By achieving OCS certification, Davis-Standard joins a growing list of companies that have committed to reducing plastic pollution in waterways and communities.

“Our facilities in Fulton, NY, and Pawcatuck, CT, are blessed with natural beauty and proximity to natural waterways and the ocean,” said Giovanni Spitale, CEO of Davis-Standard. “This underscores our responsibility to protect these resources and is why Operation Clean Sweep certification is so important to us.”

Responsible manufacturing practices

“Environmental stewardship is deeply ingrained in our company culture at Davis-Standard,” said Dan Guthrie, President of Film, Sheet, and Core Auxiliaries at Davis-Standard. “Achieving Operation Clean Sweep certification reinforces our dedication to responsible manufacturing practices and our commitment to minimising our environmental footprint.”

This achievement builds upon Davis-Standard’s legacy of environmental sustainability. The company’s North American facilities are powered by carbon-free electricity; its Maillefer division received a Silver EcoVadis rating for its sustainability efforts. Moreover, numerous Davis-Standard facilities maintain ISO 14001 certification for their environmental management systems.
