In the semifinal – which had thousands of voters and concluded last night – Maple Leaf Farms of Leesburg knocked off Hiker Trailers from Columbus and Polywood of Syracuse topped Kidstuff Playsystems from Gary.
Maple Leaf Farms makes a roast half duck, while Polywood manufactures a 12-piece pit sectional.
The Indiana Chamber of Commerce contest, which celebrates the state’s long manufacturing history, featured a 54-company field. There were a wide range of makers and their products entered from 43 Hoosier communities.
Public voting to crown a champion began this morning at Voting closes Wednesday, Nov. 30 at 10 p.m. ET. The tournament champion will be announced Dec. 14 at the Indiana Chamber’s Best IN Manufacturing Luncheon.
