The Wooden Hammer Connection
Today I spoke once again with Ed Hammer, President of Wooden Hammer, a manu-facturer located just south of Elk Rapids. Here is a summary of his remarks.
Ed continues to work closely with Dennis Valkanoff, 45th Parallel Furniture, and Mark Toteff, Traverse Bay Manufacturing, to make sure that the Elk-Rapids-made upholstered furniture is ready to ‘rock and roll’ this spring. And this effort is benefiting local employment now. Ed has already hired one worker, who is relocating here from North Carolina and he’s actively pursuing another. As He proudly states, “We’re bringing ‘em back! ”
