Manufacturers: Leading the Way
Our state’s manufacturers have always led the way in innovation. When our nation was brought to a near standstill by COVID-19, manufacturers heroically and swiftly pivoted to produce the equipment needed by front-line workers, vulnerable populations, hospitals and businesses.
It’s past time to shine the spotlight on one of our state’s most vital industries. To celebrate the innovation, creativity and importance of our state’s manufacturers, the NC Chamber is hosting a statewide “Coolest Thing Made in NC” contest. After a public nomination and voting process, the NC Chamber will announce which product manufactured in the Old North State is truly the “coolest thing made in NC.”
