“On behalf of Trendway and its more than 300 employees, it is truly an honor to have been nominated and awarded this recognition,” said Don Heeringa, chairman and CEO of Trendway Corporation. “Trendway has been in the business of creating beautiful spaces and quality products for 50 years, and it’s because of our employee’s commitment to making speed and ease the defining experience for our customers that we’ve achieved this level of success.”
In addition to Trendway employees, Heeringa credits his time in the Army as one of the factors that enabled him to lead and develop Trendway into a successful organization, which is celebrating its 50th year in business.
