It’s No Miracle! Our Meatloaf Pan is Stuffed with Great Reviews!

Davison News

Did you know that last week’s primetime QVC airing of the Miracle Meatloaf Pan sold over 7,000 products? Additionally, have you heard what just some of those happy customers are saying about the innovative bakeware product that we designed right here at Davison?

Here are a few of the latest snippets of feedback that QVC buyers are saying…

“Very simple to use and also fun. It’s a whole new way to make a meatloaf less boring! I love it! It is simple to use, but you need to watch the video if you don’t see it being offered on QVC. The clean-up is great.”

“Didn’t realize how big a pan this is. Great concept. What did I do before I bought this? My go-to loaf pan now.”

“Can’t say enough good things about this pan. Love it. Chef Tony has some of the very best products that work so well for me. I use this item a lot. I love the fact that your pan has a design that the fat goes below, away from your meat. So healthy and I have stuffed my meatloaf with all kinds of things. It is always a winner for our dinner.”

For the second time this year, the Miracle Meatloaf Pan received great feedback! That’s why it’s no wonder that the Miracle Meatloaf Pan is a QVC.com “Best Seller” that has received a nearly-perfect 5-star rating!

Davison Trio Co-chairs Pittsburgh CLO Guild’s Memorable Night

Davison News

When Pittsburgh came together in celebration of the arts for the 59th annual CLO Guild Ball on Saturday, June 7th, it was none other than our CEO and founder, George Davison, his mother, Moira, and his daughter, Morgan, who led the epic night!

The three generations of Davison co-chairs hosted the magical evening, “A Night to Remember,” welcoming nearly 350 guests to the Westin Convention Center in downtown Pittsburgh.

The musical night included dinner, dancing, raffles and a silent auction, all in support of the Pittsburgh CLO Guild’s community outreach programs, which include performing arts college scholarships, internship programs, youth and senior ticket programs, musical theater training programs for adults and children with disabilities and other community arts programs.

Longtime CLO Guild supporters Judge Robert and the late Violet Gallo also were honored during the evening with the CLOE Award and a video tribute.

Special thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate the 59th annual Pittsburgh CLO Guild Ball in support of the arts!

Davison News

At Davison, we started out 2014 with an incredible bang when our client’s Miracle Meatloaf Pan debuted on QVC’s “In the Kitchen with David” in January and SOLD OUT in less than 10 minutes!

Now that we’re half way through 2014, the Miracle Meatloaf Pan is headed back to “In the Kitchen with David,” where Culinary Professional Chef Tony Notaro will showcase the pan and the many wonderful meatloaf creations that can be made with it.

Last time, Chef Tony whipped up turkey cheese broccoli meatloaf, pizza meatloaf, Greek-stuffed chicken meatloaf and manicotti-stuffed meatloaf, just to name a few of his culinary creations.

What will he be cooking up with the Miracle Meatloaf Pan tonight? Our mouths are watering just thinking about all of the options!

Tune in to QVC tonight at 8 p.m. to see the Davison-designed Miracle Meatloaf Pan and Chef Tony team up for stuffed meatloaf success!

Davison Partners with The Challenge Program to Recognize Stellar Student Achievements

Davison News

As the 2014 school year comes to a close, we’re excited to showcase bright area students who are reaping the benefits of their hard work throughout the academic year.

Continuing to show our support of academics, particularly in the STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and math), Davison is this year’s proud sponsor of  The Challenge Program (TCP) at Meadville Area Senior High School.

Recently, TCP selected five Meadville Area Senior High School seniors to receive financial awards for their year-round academic efforts.

TCP Communications Assistant Kayla Wasko said that last week’s awards recognized students not only for their academic achievements, but also for other notable attributes.

“The Challenge Program, Inc. held an awards presentation at Meadville Area Senior High School last week to reward five senior students for their achievements in academics, attendance and community service,” said Wasko.

Further specifying the awards, TCP’s Mark Ziegenfuss said the financial awards recognized Attendance, Academic Improvement, Academic Excellence, STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) and Community Service.

Pictured below are the outstanding students who received this year’s TCP awards: (left to right) Thomas Leech (STEM Award); Samuel Mehan (Attendance); Jonah Foxman (Academic Excellence); and Brianna Maciejewski (Academic Improvement). Missing from photo is Morgan Youngs (Community Service).

Ziegenfuss went on to thank Davison for supporting the Meadville Area Senior High School awards.

“Our efforts would not be possible without business partnership like Davison International,” said Ziegenfuss. “The Challenge Program is always excited to be a part of the recognition of your student successes and achievements!”

Congratulations to the five outstanding Meadville Area Senior High School seniors who won this year’s TCP awards!

Check out the Feedback from the Latest Inventionland Tours!

Davison News

The doors of Inventionland are always open for scheduled tours and last month in particular, two groups of students and a big name corporation made their way around our 61,000 square-foot workspace!

Despite the fact that National Inventors Month has come and gone for another year, at Davison, we celebrate the inventive spirit all year round!

This past month, we opened our doors to students from the Seneca Valley School District’s Haine School, several area homeschooled children and their families and a corporate team from one of the region’s largest grocery store chains, Giant Eagle.

Today, we want to give a quick recap of these recent tours!

Inspired students tour through Inventionland regularly and the feedback that we receive from these students does not go unnoticed. In fact, as soon as the students from Haine School returned to their classroom, letters of thanks were on their way to Inventionland! Here is a small snippet of the great, positive feedback we received!

“… The scenery was gorgeous and I learned LOTS of stuff. Everything inspired me to be creative and I think I might be an inventor after that trip.” – Aidan

Also, this month, a group of homeschooled students and their parents closed their workbooks for a day and listened to our story as they toured our creative workspace!

The students and their parents enjoyed the tour so much that they also sent us a wonderful letter expressing their gratitude. In the letter, the homeschooled group wrote that when walking through our magic door, they felt like they were walking into Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory! They also said that the story of Inventionland was a nice deviation from just going to “learn” what they had studied in books!

Finally, a corporate team from Giant Eagle made their way through Inventionland. These eager team members were excited to ditch their conventional offices for the day to enjoy something a little more creative, and we think it’s safe to say that we don’t lack in the creativity department!

From the reaction of the corporate team, we could tell that the inventive spirit was alive and well! They noted that they had a few expectations of what Inventionland was; but, those expectations were far-exceeded when the magic bookcase opened!

All in all, we are confident when we say that Inventionland tours are perfect for people of any age! And, with each tour, we find it inspiring to see our world through the eyes of others!

Davison Products Shine at 2014 National Hardware Show

Davison News

Last week, the Las Vegas Convention Center was filled with over 27,000 hardware industry professionals for the 2014 National Hardware Show, which caters to the home improvement and DIY markets.

And, what would a major trade show be without some Davison-designed products?

At the 2014 National Hardware Show, Creative Outdoor Distributor featured several products that were designed at Inventionland, including: the Bucket Bench, Compressor Keeper, Chuck A Puck, Curved Sports Bench and Garage Grate. Additionally, Creative Outdoor Distributor also showcased the Auto Pocket which was designed at Inventionland, too!

This year’s National Hardware Show was a success and we are already looking forward to next year! Here are a few photos from the 2014 National Hardware Show:

See Two Closet-Organizing Davison Designs on Jokari.com!

Davison News

Two Davison-designed products, the Hanger Pockets and Hanger Links, were recently licensed by the Jokari Company. Not to mention that in addition to being featured at the 2014 International Home + Housewares Show in Chicago, IL, both products have now landed on the front page of Jokari.com!

The two products are showcased together on a rotating slider on Jokari’s homepage.

These Davison-designed products offer the consumer a better way to organize their closets. In fact, Jokari said that the Hanger Pockets “organize your accessories right on the hanger… Perfect for everyday, travel and special occasions.”

Jokari went on to say that the Hanger Links are “great for scarves, belts, ties and more! [They] link together for more storage.”

The Jokari homepage was only the first stop for these two products. In fact, both are featured in the company’s product catalog!

After seeing our Davison-designed products on Jokari’s website and in their catalog, we think that it’s safe to say that we’re already “hooked” now and can’t wait to see these products soar onto store shelves!
