MARNE, Mich.—DeWys Manufacturing Inc., a West Michigan-based metal fabrication company, recently announced the addition of Amy Hatfield as the company’s new inside sales coordinator. In her new role, Amy will provide communication between the sales, engineering, manufacturing, and shipping areas of DeWys Manufacturing. She will also be responsible for order entry and meeting the needs of customers by building relationships through phone calls and face-to-face visits.

Prior to joining the team at DeWys Manufacturing, Amy worked in sales, accounting, and as an operations manager for a metal fabrication distributor. In 2009, Amy started her own metal fabrication equipment distributorship, becoming the first female to own and operate a company in this industry. Her passion for manufacturing stems from being the third generation involved with metal fabrication in her family, following her grandfather and father. “When I was 12, I remember going to a metal fabrication shop with my dad and being fascinated with the sights and sounds of the machines in the shop,” she said in a press release. “I get the same feeling today that I got when I was younger.”

From its manufacturing facility in West Michigan, the company provides a wide range of metal production and assembly capabilities to more than 160 clients in Michigan, Indiana, Wisconsin, Ohio, and several other areas of the United States.
