Manufacturing is alive and well in the Tristate, and the Cincy Manny Awards are here to celebrate that fact.  This year, we once again honor outstanding local manufacturing companies for their innovation and best practices.

In the following articles, we profile 15 Greater Cincinnati companies of all sizes, ages and ownerships that have exhibited success in the areas of adding new jobs creating great workplaces, designing new products, making a breakthrough and charting growth. (Judging for the Mannys was conducted by an independent panel representing various sectors.)

Winners will be honored at a banquet on June 2 at a Xavier University's Cintas Center.  (Seats are still available at $60 each.  Tables of eight may be reserved for $450.  Call (513) 297-6218, or click here.)

In this, the third annual Manny Awards, we highlight not only the winners listed here, but the region's many other companies that are worth watching.
