About Davidson

Our Mission

At Davidson, our mission is to lead with solutions for our customers in three ways: by delivering high-quality products and services using innovative materials and processes; by investing in people, technology, and continuous improvement, which allows us to offer our customers competitive pricing; and by building ethical long-term relationships with those customers, as well as with our employees and supply partners. We continue to implement sound strategies in continuous improvement, total cost control, e-business, and delivery, adding these to our engineering and manufacturing capabilities and experience in order to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations.

We rely on our significant internal capabilities and experience and add to that the supply chain advantages we have through Leggett & Platt’s many other companies, as well as the multiple product sourcing available to us locally in West Michigan and through our partnership with Becker KG. These things, taken together, give us a proven edge over our competition.
