Last week DeWys Mfg., a metal fabricator based in west Michigan, launched a new Web site, and the content of that Web site is worth noting. The contract fabricator is touting its “circle of companies” concept, which is another way to describe the fact that DeWys is a one-stop shop for metal manufacturing: precision sheet metal, metal stamping, powder coating, product assembly, machining, and international sourcing.
Yes, you read that last one right: international sourcing.
As DeWys’ Web site states: “Following the principles of lean manufacturing, we strive to accomplish tasks using the most efficient manufacturing systems and following the most direct route. It is for this reason DeWys International was established. DeWys International simplifies the process of sourcing component parts and finished products from offshore manufacturers.”
