The continuing efforts by the City of Jasper to improve the business climate in the area has been beneficial to DAPA Products, Inc and its' workforce. Maintaining and improving city services has been one of the keys in the process" - Hubert Thomas, General Manager, DAPA Products
DAPA Products was formed with the idea of creating a small family-owned business. For years its original founders had been involved in many areas of management and distribution. Competition on plastics products had become very strong and it seemed that the only way to remain successful was to become the manufacturer rather than the distributor.
This opened a whole new world for us with the door and window industry. Foam Screen Spline became a major focus for the company. Research throughout this market showed that companies were having a real problem with employee retention and workers comp claims related to carpal tunnel syndrome. DAPA's Foam Spline helped to reduce the stress of screening and over the past few years has become the spline of choice for many major manufacturers.
Today DAPA is running several extrusion lines 24 hours a day, 5 days per week. Foam Welt Cord and Foam Screen Spline are still our main products but we now provide many other products for these markets and several other industries.
