Prior to Dave and Leslie starting this business, Dave worked as a welder in the valley from the time he was 18 years old.
Dave and Leslie both grew up in the Grand Valley and now call the Fruita area home. They have three kids, nine grandchildren and a little dog, Scooter, that most people who have visited DW Metal Works are probably familiar with. They enjoy all things outdoors and like to support local youth in agriculture through the local 4-H and FFA programs.
Brian Moravek is the shop foreman and he is the go-to guy for basically everything that happens in the shop. Kim, their daughter, also plays a large roll at DW Metal Works with the day to day operations.
You’ll still find Dave and Leslie at the shop throughout the week but they have started to take a backseat in preparation for retirement.
