Millcraft is proud to announce that we have been named to Crain’s Cleveland Business’s 2014 FAST 50 Class.  This award recognizes the 50 fastest-growing privately-held companies in Northeast Ohio for their entrepreneurial spirit, innovative business tactics and growth.

Commenting on the award, Millcraft President Travis Mlakar said, "There is no doubt in my mind that the spirit, business tactics and growth for which we are being recognized are fueled by our employees.  It is truly a testament to all that can be built and accomplished when great individuals are given an opportunity to work and grow together. This award is proof that, despite all the negative messaging about our “declining” industry, we have not been limited by it.  We have been able to find new opportunities, expand, diversify, gain market share, and continue to thrive."
