A History of Customer Service and Program Solutions
DAVACO began in 1990 in Dallas, Texas. Originally known as Fixture Perfect, the company started
as a retail store fixture installation company. DAVACO's initial success was paved by the explosive
growth of a national video chain and servicing their need to open stores every 14 hours during their growth years.
From DAVACO's early days, the company was poised for growth. After only one year, DAVACO achieved
its original five-year strategic plan, and soon thereafter, shifted its focus to working directly for national
brands to ensure the best results. Over the years, DAVACO continued to expand its client base, as well as its service
offerings. In 2002, we officially changed our name to DAVACO, short for A Rick Davis Company, the company's founder, to reflect our
growing and evolving expertise.
Today, DAVACO continues to build on its solid foundation and remains committed to providing
exceptional customer service, high quality work that is backed by a satisfaction guarantee.
