Testimony that electronics manufacturing is back on shore, EBW Electronics has undergone 700 percent growth past five years, earning recognition in a number of ways. Most recently, Pat LeBlanc, chairman of EBWE, was named 2014 Small Business Person of the Year by the Michigan West Coast Chamber of Commerce. Each year, the chamber honors a small businessman or woman based on nominations from its piers. LeBlanc and EBWE were cited for the company’s exponential growth, job creation and its economic impact on of the community. Adding to its list of accolades, EBWE was yet again named to The 2014 Inc. 500/5000 annual rankings list, which recognizes the fastest-growing private companies in America.
