Metal fabricator DeWys Mfg. has announced plans for a building addition to its existing 60,000-sq.-ft. manufacturing facility in Marne, Mich. The 24,000-sq.-ft. addition will feature new metal fabrication equipment and will serve as home to DeWys University, where the company will offer an in-house training program for current and new employees.
"Due to the lack of qualified applicants, we have decided to invest in our training program and teach the skills we require here at DeWys," said Jon DeWys, president.
The company's 27 percent sales growth in 2011 resulted in the hiring of 30 new employees.
