Our History

Founded after World War II, FloraCraft is a family-owned business success story built by owner and Chairman Lee Schoenherr, who leveraged the purchase of his uncle’s business, growing it into the industry leader we are today. Over the past eight decades, we have grown steadily by expanding our product line to better meet the needs of our customers and through acquisitions.


FloraCraft is committed to reducing our environmental impact by recycling more than 98 percent of our foam fabrication scrap. This scrap material is then collected and reused in other FloraCraft products or sold to companies who utilize recycled materials.

Made in America

FloraCraft is dedicated to protecting American jobs by maintaining its independence as a locally owned and operated Michigan company.
