It’s been a banner week for FloraCraft in Ludington.
The president and CEO, Eric Erwin, was announced a winner of Entrepreneur of the Year from Ernst & Young, and the company recently launched a new product made from recycled materials.
Erwin and eight other business leaders were selected for Ernst & Young’s Michigan and Northwest Ohio award, according to a press release.
Erwin was among 28 leaders who were nominated in August. At that time, he told the Daily News it was an honor to be considered.
The entrepreneurs were evaluated based on criteria of overcoming adversity, financial performance, societal impact and commitment to building a values-based company, innovation and talent management.
The regional winners will be considered for the national award in November.
FloraCraft’s new product is FōM® with PolyRenew®, a craft and floral foam
