HOLLAND, Mich. -- Trendway Corp was recognized by the National Veteran Business Development Council as the 2018 Veteran Business of the Year. NVBDC is the nation’s leading third-party certification program for veteran-owned businesses.    

“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. “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.”
