Our History


1995 - Great Lakes Metal Stamping, Inc. was founded by Keith Hettig, and got its start in a shared building, located in St. Joseph, Michigan.  There the company grew from two employees and one press line to fourteen employees and three press lines in just four years.




1999 - Construction begins on our Bridgman, Michigan location. 




2001 - Great Lakes is already outgrowing its new facility, requiring an addition to the building just two years later!
