Our Beginning

Dawar Technologies was founded in 1883 as a commercial printer and typographer under the name Warde Press and later took on an additional partner, Frank Davis, and changed its name to Davis and Warde. For many years, the company produced high-quality annual reports and corporate brochures for Pittsburgh-based Fortune 500 companies. During the mid-’70s, at the request of our customers, a screen-printing operation was started in-house producing posters, banners and signage, which eventually evolved into printing on polycarbonate film in the mid-’80s. In 1985, Dawar Technologies was formed to accommodate the increased demand for screen-printed overlay products for the industrial, medical, and instrumentation marketplace.
