Whether you’re traveling by land, sea, air or rail, products manufactured by DAVWIRE might be present. The company manufactures wire harnesses, control panels, vehicle electrical systems and does box builds, primarily for OEMs. Its products are used on the commercial and heavy aircraft of all three major aircraft manufacturers, either directly or as a Tier 2. “We are on close to 10 armored land vehicles, and in the marine business, our products are currently going into the Royal Canadian Navy frigate,” President and CEO Mark MacKenzie declares.
DAVWIRE entered the marine business through its acquisition in September 2014 of Rutter Inc.’s manufacturing division, formerly located in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Even though marine products are similar to those DAVWIRE produces for air and land vehicles, establishing itself in the marine industry takes longer.
