Over the years, Davison has been proud of the feedback we have received from creative clients. In some cases, these individuals have tried to pursue ideas on their own with no success, or they are trying to develop something for the first time. In either case, Davison offers creative individuals the same thoughtfulness and experience we apply to our own new products as they are prepared and presented to corporations.
Below are a few testimonials from individuals with new product ideas who we have helped.
Andrew from California
Andrew said he would recommend Davison to other individuals with new product ideas, and he described all the staff as “very helpful, thoughtful and considerate.”
“All the people at Davison have just been wonderful people to work with … They’ve been very fair with me; I have greatly appreciated that.”

“If you’ve got an idea, don’t hold back – continue to develop it … If they bump into me, they’ll be advised to go to Davison.”

Client: Albert from Arizona
After doing extensive research about different companies, Albert chose Davison to develop his new product idea because it has been around for a while and has “the best reputation of everyone.”
Albert paid a visit to the design facility in 2007 and viewed the prototype of his new product idea. “It more than met my expectations.”
“My overall experience working with Davison has been absolutely positive from the start until now,” said Albert. “Davison has always met every expectation so far; it’s been a very good experience … Everyone I worked with has been fantastic, and they kept me updated.”
Albert said he has already recommended Davison several times. When individuals who have new product ideas ask him for advice, he always asks them if they want to do it all on their own or have somebody do the work for them who can develop a product more economically.
“The cost is reasonable and fair.”

Client: James, from West Virginia
James said his experience working with Davison has been positive, even though it’s been a bit time consuming. He also has some advice for other inventors who are hoping to develop a new product.

Client: Alton, from Florida
Alton was concerned about confidentiality of his idea after contacting Davison, so he put away the mount prototype he had built and didn’t tell anyone about it. His new products director walked him through all the steps in the beginning.
“You couldn’t ask for a nicer guy to work with,” said Alton. “He kept in touch and was very easy to reach.”
The inventor said he would recommend Davison to anyone else who is trying to develop an invention. He also has some advice for them.
“I had a couple people who asked me. I told them right off the bat – they need to contact somebody like Davison. It’s more than they can do on their own.”
In our business, we come across a wide range of new product ideas, each focusing on a specific industry. Behind each of these ideas is a person who has stepped out from the norm of society and has had the desire to make a change for the better. They believe that what they have created will improve the quality of life for others.
“I am writing this letter to express my appreciation to you and your staff at Davison…. I can honestly say that Davison did exactly what they promised…. I was never promised that my idea would or would not become licensed.”
Jeffrey, from Rhode Island
“I can’t thank you people enough for what you have done for me. Davison is a company I would recommend to anyone who has an idea and doesn’t know where to go with it.
You people have been so nice and helpful. Thanks again.”
Jeraldine, from Oregon
“This has been an exciting process. I have been kept apprised by the Davison staff throughout the journey and really felt like part of the team. They have been my cheerleaders, support system, and mentors. I have nothing but positive thoughts regarding Davison and its staff of knowledgeable employees. I would highly recommend Davison to anyone interested in pursuing their idea!”
Kathy, from Texas
“Fear of the unknown is what keeps people from pursuing their hopes and dreams, but I can say working with Davison eliminated any and all of my preconceived, negative notions… To my delight, working with Davison was smoother than I could ever imagine. Your colleagues who assisted me from beginning to end have been exceptionally understanding and patient with me. They held my hand through the entire process.”
Rosie, from Maryland
Along the way, some of these individuals have met with criticism from people who didn’t believe in the new product idea. Instead of accepting defeat, the individual chose to continue believing in their idea and pushed forward in the face of adversity.
“I am writing today to say thank you to you and to everyone at Davison who worked with me. You worked so hard on this project, all the while keeping me well informed every step of the way. I always felt like I was part of a team. Again, I want to say thank you so very much and God bless you all, and I hope to work with you again sometime in the future.”
Deana, from Alabama
“Sometimes we sort of gave up. We are Canadians, and some people only gave us words of discouragement. But we never gave up, as we would never know if we’d done well or not.”
Ken, from Canada
Most people with new product ideas generally have more than one such idea, and most can attest to having seen ideas that they came up with (but didn’t pursue) on the market. They had been just waiting or wondering what to do while someone else solved the problem with the same new product.
“I’ve been trying for many years to find an honest company that could represent my product and I just couldn’t find one. But when I found Davison, they were very honest with me. I really recommend them. They’re really faithful.”
Raul, from California
“For years I had been thinking of new inventions, but didn’t know how to develop them or who to approach to manufacture or market them. Those ideas just sat in my head until I would see them for sale- invented by someone else!
Denis, from Canada
Developing, presenting and licensing a new product is not a quick and easy process. In most cases, it takes time, patience and perseverance while waiting to see if your product is licensed.
If there is any advice that I could give to prospective inventors it is this: Believe in yourself and your product. Be patient and persistent. It definitely will not happen overnight, but don’t give up! You have nothing to lose.”
Leanna, from New York
