Logic’s President Bruce Richardson states, “It’s wonderful that Michigan Celebrates Small Business recognizes second-stage companies that have demonstrated resilience and tenacity through the years. We wholeheartedly agree that start-ups and industry giants are necessary to a healthy economy, but established small businesses like Logic often go unnoticed in economic development discussions. We’re proud to be a part of this outstanding crowd.”
