CAMC Member Dowding Industries Celebrates 50 Years in Style!
Chris Metts, CEO of Dowding Industries, delivered a captivating speech on Thursday, July 25 to a crowd of employees, customers, business partners and the Eaton Rapids community as part of the company’s 50 year celebration!
In the last 50 years, Dowding Industries has grown from a tool and die manufacturer to a cutting edge, world-class manufacturer of metal stampings, fabrication, precision machined components, and assemblies.
At the ceremony, special recognition was given Maurice (Skip) Dowding, the Founder of Dowding Industries, who opened a small 5,000 sq. foot facility in 1965. He received a Key to the City from the Mayor of Eaton Rapids, a renovated miniature airplane (a favorite hobby of his) and a proclamation of “Dowding Day” on June 25 from this day forward.
It was a top-notch celebration, with numerous trucks, cars and offroad vehicles with Caterpillar and Cummins Engines which Dowding Industries supplies parts for.  People enjoyed eating hotdogs, cotton candy and strolling through memory lane with a unique display, based on the history of the company. 
Congratulations Dowding Industries!
