Marne, MI (June 20th, 2016) – DeWys Manufacturing Inc., a West – Michigan based metal solutions company, is pleased to announce the addition of three co-op students, Jesse, Derek, and Alex, to the DeWys Mfg. team.

These three students are all obtaining their degree in Mechanical Engineering from Grand Valley State University (GVSU) and Michigan Technological University. Jesse, from GVSU, stated “I wanted to be an engineer because they have a direct impact on the world around them, and are given a real chance to make a difference. “ Whereas Derek, also from GVSU said, “I decided that engineering would offer the perfect mix of intellectual and physical labor.”
During their time at DeWys Mfg., the co-op students will be working closely with the DeWys Innovation team to propose efficient weld booth layouts, value stream developments, and front end alignment designs for the engineering team. “I enjoy the emphasis of hands-on learning DeWys Mfg. has provided me, as well as the opportunities to implement my innovative ideas,“ said Alex from Michigan Tech.
Jesse, Derek, and Alex’s skills and knowledge will add value throughout DeWys Manufacturing, as well as provide them with opportunities to gain a deeper understanding of the manufacturing industry.
