Shayla Eidenschink, our HR Generalist, uses her magical talents to hire, onboard, and help new D&M employee owners become familiar with the team and company culture! After graduating from NDSU, she spent several years working in hospitality but wanted to bring her fun and lively personality to a new industry!

Being the Plant Manager I get to see each customer order through the entire process from order entry to being delivered. Looking at every way possible to better serve our customers on an order by order basis is what me and my team look forward to every day! Outside of work I love spending time with my family which includes my Fiancé Brittni, our 2 sons Camdyn and Carter, and our mini golden doodle Murphy. When there is time I try to fit in as much golf as possible whether it be on the course or watching on TV.
Dave brings over 20 years of purchasing experience to the D&M Industries team and has been with the company since July 2013.

Working for an employee-owned company fosters a culture of cooperation among employees.
Kim has been in Human Resources/Payroll/Accounting for 30 years. She has enjoyed her years with D&M since no two days have been the same as each day brings many rewards and some challenges. When not at work she enjoys camping, baking and spending time with friends and family. Her favorite holiday is Halloween and setting up her animatronics to “thrill” the neighborhood children. The scarier the better!
