Cincy Magazine 11th annual MANNY Awards June 8

Manny Awards Web LogoManufacturing 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. 16 Manufacturers from across the Tristate will be honored at Cincy Magazine’s Manny Awards on June 8 for achievements in four categories: Best Place to Work, Best Apprenticeship Program, New Product Development and Top Growth.
