Local manufacturers advance in Coolest Things contest

Several area businesses have made the super sixteen round of the Indiana Chamber of Commerce’s Coolest Thing Made in Indiana competition. The voting for the next round kicked off this morning and ends on Nov. 13th.

This is the second year for the competition, where winners for each round are chosen by fan voting, with the products receiving the highest votes in each bracket moving to the next round.

While a company does not need to be headquartered in Indiana to enter, the product must be manufactured in the state.

Among the area products making the cut this round are Guardian Bikes made in Seymour, Hard Truth Maple Bourbon Cream made in Nashville, and Hiker Trailers made in Columbus.

Also on the list is Wood-Mizer Portable Sawmill based in Batesville and Indianapolis.

After the field of 16, the quarterfinal voting will start Nov. 14th.

The winner of the competition will be announced December 13 at the Indiana Chamber’s Best IN Manufacturing Awards Luncheon.
