Employee Appreciation


In January B&L took a much-deserved break from a busy production schedule to recognize all its hard-working employees, past and present. Employees and guests were invited to share an evening of food, fun, and prizes at McMenamins Grand Lodge. On the menu was prime rib, raffle prizes and a side of karaoke.

During the trivia round that evening, we learned that B&L founders, Lenny and Patty Everly have been blessed with over 50 years of happy marriage. Among Lenny’s various entrepreneurial endeavors, he decided to open B&L Wood Creations as a small wood shop in 1982. We also found out that Detroit is one of only two major US cities that we have yet to install our products in, (the other being Phoenix). But guess where we were in February? …. So, I guess it’s down to Phoenix.

Of B&L’s current 35 permanent employes, 11 have been with the company for over 15 years, 9 of them for over 20.

We appreciate everyone’s contribution to B&L’s success this past year and over the past 32 years.
