Tapecon’s chairman, Alan Davis, has been awarded the Buffalo Business First Lifetime Achievement Award in Manufacturing for his contributions to manufacturing in Buffalo during an individual's career.
Buffalo Business First hosted a virtual award ceremony on Wednesday, July 22, 2020, which included an acceptance speech from Davis.
‘One thing I know for sure is that I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for the support, dedication, diligence and loyalty of the people around me, both past and present,’ commented Alan Davis. ‘I want to thank Business First for this award, I'm very honored. I do think that manufacturing is very strong in Buffalo and look forward to seeing it continue to grow.’
Steve Davis, president of Tapecon and Davis’ oldest son added: ‘My father is one of those managers where you always feel like he’s listening. He doesn’t talk over you, and he always thinks before he speaks. He has been a great mentor to me along with my brothers and everyone in the company.’
