DALB, Inc. is a privately held commercial screen-printing company located in Kearneysville, W.Va. The company commenced operations in 1982 with four founding employees in a 2,500 square-foot rented facility. The company now owns and occupies a 100,000 square-foot facility and employs 170 full-time staff.

DALB’s primary customers are manufacturers of food and soft drink vending machines and glass-front merchandisers.

Its products consist of printed and lighted plastic sign faces, pressure-sensitive vinyl decals and flavor cards. These items provide appealing graphics for food and soft drink equipment. Additionally, the company prints many other products used for point-of-purchase displays as well as decorative panels used on high-end LCD televisions.

Recently, DALB invested in vacuum/thermoforming equipment and began designing and manufacturing thermo-formed plastic products such as three-dimensional signs. The investment in these products will allow DALB to grow its business in other markets.

DALB obtained a State training award to train its staff on many of the new technologies that have been incorporated into its processes. This training has helped them quickly acquire the skills required to expand into this new product line.

To accommodate its increased business in the thermoforming market, DALB began construction of a 26,000 square-foot addition to its facility.
“Upon learning of the Governor’s Guaranteed Work Force Program, we’ve taken many opportunities to further train our staff in new technologies that will enable us to continue growing in the 21st century.”
