DeWys Metal Solutions’ Expands Marne, Michigan, Operations

DeWys Metal Solutions, a a full-service sheet metal fabricator and manufacturing company, plans to expand its operations in Marne, Michigan. The $3.4 million project is expected to create 80 jobs.

The company will construct a new facility at its existing site.

“DeWys has seen significant growth over the past 45 years,” said Mark Schoenborn, president of DeWys Metal Solutions. “As the company continues to grow and expand, we are being strategic and intentional with the solutions offered to keep meeting our customers’ increasing needs. Rebranding in 2021 as DeWys Metal Solutions not only strengthened the brand identity, but it also aligned the division of companies to create a structure for expansion and additional acquisitions in the future. Staying committed to the success of all stakeholders is the DeWys way. This means caring about each other’s personal, professional, and financial goals. This grant will provide us the tools necessary to do just that.”

The project is being supported by a $560,000 Jobs Ready Michigan Program performance-based grant. In addition, Wright Township will support the project in the form of a 12-year tax abatement, contingent on township board approval.

“DeWys is committed to the local community and to the manufacturing industry, and it shows,” noted Jennifer Owens, president of Lakeshore Advantage. “They are highly engaged in many community initiatives including Discover Manufacturing which opens the door to meaningful career exploration for local students. This is a company that shows up, gives back and has a deep commitment to developing and growing their team.”
