Always the inventor, Don decided if you can’t buy it, then design and make it! Nearly half a century later; their history and expertise in the industry has led to a worldwide presence through an extensive network of technical agents, who supply Esterlam advanced synthetic doctor blade products globally. They work successfully with leading machinery OEMs, corporations and blue-chip companies worldwide.
