The Women MAKE Awards (formerly the STEP Awards) recognize women and their achievements at all levels of a manufacturing organization. Each year, companies nominate their female employees for consideration, and the 1,000 candidates, 100 Honorees and 30 Emerging Leaders are peer-selected based on their leadership, innovation, mentorship and community impact, according to a press release announcing the honor.

Hellwig-White has been working her way through the ranks of her family’s Women’s Business Enterprise National Council-certified company since 2005, becoming president and CEO in 2018 and nearly tripling the business’s revenue along the way.  After almost 20 years in the industry, she still enjoys walking the factory floor with her team.

Her work with the Society of Automotive Engineers in Southern California, serving as an advisor to engineering students in Southern California universities, as well as her partnerships with SEMA Businesswomen’s Network projects and SEMA’s Gear-Up Girl, contributed to her MAKE Awards nomination, the release noted.

Her recent appointment to incoming Chair of the Board of Directors for SEMA has only amplified her efforts to help the industry; she now works to protect and grow family-owned small businesses across the United States.
