Davis has a bachelor’s degree from Indiana University. He also holds two patents and has one pending regarding the treatment of industrial laundry wastewater.

With Davis’ expertise and direction, the Gurtler Wastewater Division has a full line of wastewater treatment chemicals that can serve the needs of multiple industries and multiple types of wastewater treatment systems.

Included in the full-service offering will be specialized on-site service and technical support. The new program includes unique technology that can significantly reduce the volume of sludge generated in traditional wastewater-treatment programs, thus reducing disposal costs. Gurtler also provides full support for its customers, helping resolve regulatory, environmental and operational problems.
