Scag Windstorm Hoping to Take Wisconsin by Storm this September in the 2019 Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce ‘Coolest Thing Made in Wisconsin Contest’
By: Metalcraft of Mayville
Metalcraft of Mayville Inc. is pleased to announce that Scag Power Equipment, a Division of Metalcraft of Mayville, has had its Windstorm stand-on blower nominated for the 2019 Coolest Thing Made in Wisconsin Contest. The annual competition, presented by Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce (WMC) and Johnson Financial Group, aims to highlight the state’s manufacturing industry.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to have our newest product featured in this year’s contest,” said Scag President, Mr. Chris Frame. “Commercial landscapers across the country absolutely love our first stand-on blower. In real-world usage, customers have told us that a single worker using a Windstorm is able to replace the productivity of up to five workers using traditional backpack blowers.”
A popular vote will take place at www.madeinwis.com from Sept. 9 to Sept. 15 to determine the Top 16 products that will be placed in a bracket-style tournament called Manufacturing Madness. Products will then compete against one another in head-to-head matchups, and those that receive the highest votes in each match- up will advance to the next round. The final rounds are set to take place from Oct. 1 to Oct. 8, with the winner being announced on Oct. 8 at WMC Foundation’s Business & Industry Luncheon at State Fair Park in Milwaukee.
“We are encouraging all of our local friends and family to go online and vote for the Windstorm thisSeptember”, said Frame. “Votes can be entered once each day, so we are getting ready to remind our employees, social media fans, and email subscribers to vote as often as they can throughout the first phase of the contest.”
