Winners of the annual awards will be announced at a September 28 awards gala
Minnesota Business magazine is excited to announce the finalists of the 2017 Manufacturing Awards! Minnesota's manufacturing industry has a long history of excellence. Each year, Minnesota Business recognizes the outstanding achievements of this vital, though often behind-the-scenes industry and its leaders. The competition for these awards began with an open nomination process. A respected panel of judged, familiar with the manufacturing sector, then chose finalists from an outstanding pool of manufacturing companies and executives — and many did not make the cut.
Winners in each category will be announced at an awards event, to be held at ARIA on September 28, 2017, and both winners and finalists will be honored in the feature story of the all-manufacturing October 2017 issue of Minnesota Business magazine.
"We are proud to recognize the leaders in Minnesota’s manufacturing industry," says Minnesota Business Editor in Chief Steve LeBeau. "The creativity, hard work and overall excellence of manufacturing make it an essential part of our state’s present and future economy."
Congratulations to all finalists, and thank you for making manufacturing a thriving sector of our state's economy!
