The Coolest Thing Made in Wisconsin contest is back for a fourth straight year. The annual competition, presented by Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce (WMC) and Johnson Financial Group, aims to highlight the state’s manufacturing industry – which employs nearly 1 in 5 Wisconsinites – and ultimately determine the Coolest Thing Made in Wisconsin.
Over 150 products from across the state have been nominated, and more than 43,000 votes were cast in the first round from Sept. 9 to Sept. 15 to determine the Top 16 Coolest Things Made in Wisconsin!
Plymouth Foam was honored to be nominated to the “Coolest Thing Made in Wisconsin” contest for our NEW Airehide Pet dog toys.
The Top 16 products will be placed into a bracket-style tournament called Manufacturing Madness, which kicks off on Sept. 17. Products will compete against one another in head-to-head match-ups, and the products that receive the highest votes in each match-up will advance to the next round. (https://madeinwis.com/)
