On May 4, 2017, longtime Lansing Regional Chamber member Bruce Whetter and Americhem Sales Corporation were honored as the Michigan Veteran Owned Small Business of the Year at the Michigan Celebrates Small Business Awards Gala. Over 750 people attended the event, known as the Academy Awards for Michigan small business. The event is held each year during National Small Business Week and is the premier awards program celebrating small business excellence in the state. 

The Veteran Owned Small Business of the Year Award was one of the five major awards presented during the evening. Judges from the banking, economic development, entrepreneurship development and venture capital communities selected the winners.
