A Heart of Manufacturing

Dowding Industries, Inc is a precision short to medium run manufacturer of progressive die stampings, metal fabrications, and welded assemblies. We also specialize in the custom laser cutting, prototyping, machining, and component part double disk grinding processes.

Located just south of Lansing, MI in Eaton Rapids, Dowding Industries, Inc. was founded in 1965 by Skip Dowding. The company has remained within the Dowding Family throughout its history and is now led by CEO Chris Dowding.

As a Certified Women's Business Enterprise we take pride in our diverse workforce. Every employee has done their part within the company in order to achieve this prestigious certification.

Innovation


Dowding Industries is leading the way for modern energy technologies through the expansion of Dowding Machining LLC.  With this $14 million adjacent facility built in 2007, Dowding is able to focus on machining transmission housings, components and platforms used in the assembly of wind turbines.

These new processes developed initially for wind power are being integrated into automotive, rail-car, defense and infrastructure sectors.

Dowding is building on a foundation of skilled people and high technology to solve our customer's problems in innovative new ways.  We have embraced the cost effective method of cellular manufacturing.  These work cells have shown to improve both ergonomics and process efficiencies at Dowding without sacrificing quality.
