Each week, our Proud to Manufacture in Michigan team picks from more than 1,000 member companies to name a Featured Manufacturer of the Week. Our latest winner is Hayes Manufacturing!

Featured Manufacturer of the Week


Hayes Manufacturing was established in 1966 as a small machine shop operating out of a garage. Since then, the company has fully transitioned from being a shop-for-hire to exclusively manufacturing the Hayes Power Transmission product line, which includes flywheel couplings, bearing supports, jaw couplings, pump mount plates, engine housings, and more. Based in Fife Lake, Mich., the company was recently acquired by the CK Power Family of Companies, and, with both being family companies, they each focus on family and valued customers to provide exceptional products and services.

Hayes Manufacturing helps customers find the flexible drive coupling that will work best for their specific application. They always seek to provide the best performance, the longest life, and the least amount of headaches regarding ordering, pricing, and delivery. Their confidence comes from many years of listening to customers, solving their dilemmas, and evolving designs based on every newly-satisfied customer.

In everything they do, Hayes Manufacturing prioritizes quality. They employ skilled spline couplings personnel to operate their state-of-the-art drive couplings and flywheel couplings machinery, and the company is certified to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. Hayes Manufacturing continually analyzes its Quality and Environmental Management Systems to identify areas for improvement and ensure customers are receiving the highest quality products possible. The company also invests in the newest machinery to meet increasing product requirements. Hayes Manufacturing has come a long way since 1966 and it is still growing, now concentrating on a number of new drive couplings, flywheel couplings, and product lines to completement their existing products.

Due to their continued growth and improvement to fit the needs of customers, Hayes Manufacturing has been chosen as Proud to Manufacture in Michigan’s latest Featured Manufacturer of the Week!
