The Davis Aircraft Products Co., Inc., a manufacturer of products for aviation related industries, occupied The Thompson Building for many years.  They were a major employer in the Village of Northport.  Many residents of the village still call The Thompson Building the Davis or Thompson Davis Building.

One of the primary products of the Davis Aircraft Products Co., Inc. are restraint systems.  In addition to the seat belts we have all used on airplanes, they developed the first seat belts for automobiles.  See the photo gallery for pictures.  The Davis Aircraft Products Co., Inc. were generous to donate three seat belts that were manufactured in the Thompson Building.  They are now housed in our collection..

The Davis Aircraft Products Co., Inc. is still operating on Long Island.  Their details can be found by clicking their logo.
