Job Description

The once small plastic molding company that stood in downtown Chicago is now the largest manufacturer of plastic knobs and handles in the world today. While Davies Molding is well known for our knobs, handles and cases, the path to doubling our business is within our custom molding capabilities. Today, Davies Molding is the premier source of custom molding services for industrial infrastructure markets because of our unique positioning as a WBE (Woman owned Business Enterprises) molding partner coupled with both thermoplastic and thermoset molding capabilities. With our extensive experience in the design-to-product process, we are uniquely positioned to provide unmatched support for projects of any scale and serve as a high value partner in the design phase as well as the value creation phase of product lifecycle. 

Heico has a history of success. Since its founding over 40 years ago The Heico Companies has grown from a single business to over 78 separate companies through a strategic acquisition policy, and by reinvesting its earnings into internal growth and new prospects. Historically talented at restoring distressed companies, Heico strategically targets acquisitions that will complement its ever-growing portfolio of companies in manufacturing, construction, and industrial services.

These four core operations are organized into groups: Applied Solutions Group, Construction Solutions Group, Industrial Technologies Group, and Metal Processing Group. Once acquired, new Heico companies are assigned to a group and run on a stand-alone basis, allowing for great independence as well as the opportunity to share knowledge about markets, production processes, and management practices across other Heico groups and companies.

Heico continues to seek out new opportunities and maintain its standard of success. The Heico Companies has remained a privately held company since its creation and maintains a majority ownership in each of its operations, which generates more than $3.3 billion dollars in revenues. Many of our businesses are certified Woman-owned Business Enterprises (WBE).
