Jun 7, 2023 | Uncategorized

We’re excited to announce that Impact Fab has been recognized as one of the 2023 awardees for the Michigan 50 Companies to Watch Award, presented by Michigan Celebrates Small Business.

The award was presented at the Breslin Center in East Lansing, and hosted more than 800 guests.

Getting our start in the Haan family garage back in 1994, Impact Fab has since grown into a multi-million dollar metal fabrication shop.

Specializing in fabrication, CNC machining, water jet cutting, laser cutting, forming, design, and engineering, Impact Fab is shaping, building, and powering the future of small batch fabrication by being the easy button for manufacturers.

“My father built Impact Fab with the support of his family and a commitment to hard work and respect. Today, we still make it our priority to offer exceptional service, quality parts, and genuine respect for our customers, partners, and team members. Watching the company grow to where it is today and being named one of Michigan’s top 50 Companies to Watch is an honor,” our President, Ross Haan said.

Companies nominated for the Michigan 50 Companies to Watch Award must be second-stage companies, defined as having six to 99 full-time-equivalent employees and generating $750,000 to $50 million in annual revenue or working capital from investors or grants. Additionally, the companies must be privately held and headquartered in Michigan.

“MCSB has always prided itself on its spirit of collaboration and celebration,” said Jennifer Deamud, MCSB Board Chair. “We love seeing our awardees celebrating one another’s success and sharing in this amazing moment is each awardee’s journey. It’s true — success is best when it is shared.”

Judges from economic and entrepreneurship development organizations annually select the winners. The judges evaluate the nominees’ demonstration of intent and capacity to grow based on the following:

  • Employee or sales growth
  • Exceptional entrepreneurial leadership
  • Sustainable competitive advantage
  • Other notable factors that showcase the company’s success

Michigan Celebrates annually receives hundreds of nominations for the Michigan 50 Companies to Watch award. In addition to a competitive landscape for this award, the businesses who are selected by the judges go through a rigorous due diligence process prior to the final decision.
