Metalcraft of Mayville Inc. is pleased to announce that Versatran, a Division of Metalcraft of Mayville, has had its new 6T Retriever industrial carrier product nominated for the 2021 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.
“The 6T Retriever is a great new product for our company, and for the State of Wisconsin,” said Versatran General Manager, Mr. Steven Vasatko. “The 6T Retriever is a great solution for a variety of applications, and we’re excited to continue introducing it to as many new eyes as we can. With the one of the highest payloads in its class and the non-CDL requirement opening up to the pool of additional drivers, we expect to see this serve as a great tool in our clients’ fleets.”
A popular vote will take place at www.madeinwis.com from Sept. 15-21 to determine the Top 16 products that will be placed into 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 round is set to take place from Oct. 7-14, with the winner to be announced on Oct. 14 at WMC Foundation’s Business Day event in Pewaukee.
“We are encouraging all Metalcraft employees, as well as all of our friends and family, to get online and vote”, said Vasatko. “You can vote once each day, so please vote as often as you can to help support this great locally-built product.”
