With two industrial facilities in Chelsea, plants in Fowlerville, Howell and Mexico, and new plant coming to Tennessee next year, Hatch Stamping Company
is definitely growing. So much so, that the Chelsea-based company has opened a new local sales office to accommodate their growth.
"We are bringing in new customers, and we are growing the customer that we do have," says Steve Emmert, director of sales for Hatch Stamping. "Also, the economy in the auto world is doing better."
After running out of room in the Chelsea location that once held their sales staff, Hatch located a pair of office suites on Middle St. to dedicate to sales. Sixteen sales staff will work out of the 4,500 square foot office, of the 245 workers the business employes in Chelsea. Company-wide, Hatch Stamping employs 680 employees.
Though the company's growth extends beyond state and even national borders, Emmert says Chelsea remains the best home base for Hatch Stamping.
"The company has been here since 1952, and we have no plans of moving our our operations out of the Chelsea area," Emmert says. "It's a good place to pull workers from."
Hatch Stamping moved into their new sales office in mid June and celebrated a grand opening on July 10.
