Daman Products is primarily engaged in the design and manufacture of hydraulic valve manifolds and related products. Founded by Mishawaka native Jack D. Davis, our company continues to thrive on the principles he set forth 40 years ago. In addition to remaining at the forefront of our industry by investing in new technology and new machinery, the focus remains on Daman’s valued employees and customers.
Daman's solid training and retention program reflect our commitment to nurture employees in self-directed work teams. This shift requires company leaders to play supportive, rather than supervisory roles and allows the company to grow from within – with people who understand our history and culture.
In response to market demands, Daman has expanded our custom capabilities in the manifold market as a single-source, full-range manifold supplier with the recent addition of a high-precision horizontal machine center, one of only eight in the country. The new machining center required the redesign of two of the company’s five manufacturing cells and a realignment of product groups. It is a visible outgrowth of Daman’s commitment to bring our service and engineering expertise to the large manifold markets.
Daman is host to local and national seminars, and company officials are frequent speakers at industry conferences, presenting the advanced manufacturing and marketing concepts that have proved successful for our company. We explain how our company has moved away from task-oriented activity and replaced it with a focus on people, effective processes, and helping customers be successful. The results are quality products and service leadership beyond our customers’ expectations and a thriving environment in which to work.
