Midwest Manufacturer Supporting the Made in America Production Gap for the EV Industry
As the world shifts towards more sustainable and environmentally friendly transportation options, the electric vehicle (EV) industry has been on a steady rise. This growth has been facilitated by several factors, including government incentives, increased consumer demand, & advancements in technology. One important factor that is somewhat overlooked is the critical role that the manufacturing industry plays in supporting the growth of the EV industry.
As a manufacturer supplying metal components to the EV industry, DeWys Metal Solutions is at the forefront of this movement and aware of the most recent development in the EV Industry. The Made in America rules supporting the Buy American Act for federally funded EV chargers requires all processes for iron or steel charger enclosures be made in the United States effective immediately.
DeWys understands the lengthy process and time it can take to review supply chains, manufacturing processes, and move production from one supplier to the next all while complying with the mandated rules.
In a recent article from autoblog.com, a variety of EV Charging Companies spoke out about their concerns with the immediate changes and how they are navigating the implementation of these new rules. Thor Anderson from Arizona’s Department of Transportation said “Buy America is likely to be another constraint in terms of how fast we can get the stations out. Everybody is going to be looking to install new charging stations at once to that’s going to put a lot of pressure on the manufacturing of chargers.”
As a trusted contract manufacturer supporting the renewable energy industry, DeWys is an essential part of this movement. The company is well positioned to embrace the opportunities presented by the Made in America Act as well as support the production capacity gap in the United States.
Headquartered in the greater Grand Rapids, MI area, the company has over 45 years of experience with product development, laser cutting, metal forming & bending, machining, powder coating, and assembly. These metal fabrication solutions will allow DeWys to meet domestic requirements of the act while supplying high quality metal components for EV Chargers.
