He began his career in Turner Valley in 1914, followed by projects in Trinidad, Mexico, Texas and Romania. He returned to Calgary in 1925 and established a consulting firm. He founded the Valley Gas Company in 1939, a distribution company for gas in the Turner Valley region. Davies was also a gas consultant to the City of Calgary throughout his career. His son Malvern Davies, 1921-2006, took over the company on his father's death until it was sold to Canadian Western Natural Gas Company in 1981.
