Davis-Standard, a designer and manufacturer of extrusion and converting technologies, announced that it has become the first OEM in its field to earn Operation Clean Sweep (OCS) certification. OCS is an international program designed to help plastics industry companies implement good housekeeping and plastic pellet containment practices, which reduce plastic pollution in waterways and communities.  

“Our facilities in Fulton, N.Y., and Pawcatuck, Conn., are blessed with natural beauty and proximity to vital waterways and the ocean,” said Giovanni Spitale, CEO of Davis-Standard. “This underscores our responsibility to protect these resources and is why Operation Clean Sweep certification is so important to us.”  

This OCS achievement builds upon Davis-Standard's legacy of environmental responsibility and its 2025 sustainability commitments. The company recently announced that all of its North American facilities now powered by 100 percent carbon-free electricity, its Maillefer division received a Silver EcoVadis rating for its sustainability efforts in Finland, and all but one of Davis-Standard's facilities maintain ISO 14001 certification for their environmental management systems.
