Cincy Magazine 10th annual MANNY Awards June 15
Manufacturing has always played an important role in the economic development of the Greater Cincinnati region. From the Cincinnati Milling Machine Company in 1889 to the AK Steel of today, manufacturers have long had an impact on the Tristate. In fact, there are currently 3,000 advanced manufacturing companies in Greater Cincinnati, employing 140,000 industry workers. Thirteen percent of the region’s workforce is employed in manufacturing.
Despite this large economic footprint, you may not know many of the Tristate’s innovative manufacturers. 12 Manufacturers from across the Tristate will be honored at Cincy Magazine’s Manny Awards on June 15 for achievements in five categories: Best Place to Work, Biggest Breakthrough, New Job Creation, New Product Development and Top Growth. Cocktails and networking begin at 5:45 p.m. with dinner and the presentation following at 6:45 p.m. This is also the fourth year for the MANNY Hall of Fame leadership Award. This year’s recipient is Dan Cunningham, president and CEO of Long-Stanton Manufacturing Co., who will be honored for his contribution to manufacturing in the Tristate, his leadership and inspiration to others.
