Flowfold, a Maine maker of wallets, bags and  other carrying gear, has been chosen by the Senior Corps of Retired Executives (SCORE) to receive the award for Outstanding American Manufacturer.

The awards ceremony will be held on the 17th of September in Washington D.C., with 10 category awards presented in total.

Flowfold designs and builds wallets, bags, and carrying gear using a high-tech material developed for racing boat sails.

SCORE is a national nonprofit that pairs entrepreneurs with expert advisers and industry veterans. Flowfold launched in 2010 and has trusted their SCORE mentor, Nancy Strojny, as a close ally in their growth.

SCORE announced Flowfold as a winner for the Outstanding American Manufacturer award only two months after they took home a $30,000 prize from the Gorham Savings Bank “Launchpad” competition.
