Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce (WMC) and Johnson Financial Group announced on Wednesday the Top 4 products moving on in the eighth annual Coolest Thing Made in Wisconsin contest. The four products each won two head-to-head matchups in a bracket style tournament known as Manufacturing Madness.
Over one million votes have been cast in the competition over the last eight years, highlighting Wisconsin’s diverse manufacturing industry, which contributes roughly $70 billion to the state’s economy each year.
This year, over 100 products were nominated for the competition. Following a popular vote round and the Manufacturing Madness bracket style rounds, Wisconsinites have narrowed the field down to the Top 4.
