History - Doverco
Message from our President
Seventy years in business doesn’t mean a thing unless you’re solving customer challenges today. Over those decades, we developed a foundational culture that has helped us transform several times. I am indebted to my dad, who was a ‘seat of the pants’ entrepreneur who authentically loved our staff and our customers, enjoyed kidding with them, telling his latest joke, and even sharing a cigar!
Today, our greatest joy comes from a completed project and building enthusiastic referrals. On the packaging equipment front, we support customers who experience the satisfaction of rescuing their companies from the burden of low level manual tasks while shepherding them to automated processes. They deliver to their companies accelerated ROI results, fewer staffing headaches and upgraded capacity, all the while paving the way for profitable growth.
Is the ‘noise’ around multiple vendors, avalanches of paperwork, and the panic of stock-outs and lost productivity sapping you of energy and productivity? Imagine a universe where that ‘invisible’ support allows you the time to focus on more pressing matters and greater results. We love learning about your challenges and delivering a solution that will support you to accomplish your goals.
If you’ve had to deal with workplace injuries and the resultant staffing issues, disability costs and paperwork, we want to support you in heroically reducing and possibly eliminating those headaches with customized and powered material handling delivery solutions tailored to your operation.
Seeing you accomplishing your goals provides us all the satisfaction we need. That’s where 70 years has brought us to! Connect with me if we do anything less.
