DBJ names honorees for Manufacturing Awards

13:17 09 August in News

The honorees have been named for this year’s Dayton Business Journal Manufacturing Awards.

The group of honorees represent all facets of Dayton’s diverse manufacturing industry, which is growing locally at a much faster rate than the national average. With manufacturing on the rebound and such a strategic growth industry in our region, it is important to recognize this industry in our area.

Manufacturing is critical to the Dayton region because it represents 100,000 jobs and accounts for tens of billions of dollars in annual sales in the 12-county region surrounding Dayton, according to a Wright State University study commissioned by the Dayton Region Manufacturers Association.

The winners and rankings for the Manufacturing Awards will be announced at the awards dinner Oct. 10 from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at the Schuster Center Wintergarden in downtown Dayton.
