“Custom Dredge Works is honored and proud to be selected and included on this prestigious list with 15 other great innovative Kansas companies. said John Jones, the President and Owner of Custom Dredge Works. “Kansas has always been our home and will always remain so. We are thrilled to be a part of the Kansas business community, especially in Topeka. Naturally we hope that we will win the competition, but either way, we are thrilled to be recognized in this fashion.”
“The Kansas manufacturing industry plays an important role in our state’s economy and employs one out of 11 Kansas workers,” said Kansas Manufacturing Council Executive Director Jeff Chapman. “This friendly competition is meant to bring attention to a few of the many fascinating and crucial products made in our state. These products beat out dozens of other nominated Kansas-made products to move on to the CTMK tournament.”
According to Chapman, the 16 products will compete in weekly head to head matchups and the one with the highest votes each matchup will advance to the next round, moving another step toward being named the Coolest Thing Made in Kansas.
According to the Chamber, voting rules are as following:
* Voting during the tournament is open to the public. A voter may vote once per day.
* Nominated products will advance through a series of voting rounds.
* Products receiving the highest number of votes during each voting period will advance rounds to the top eight, final four, and finally the winner.
* The number of votes received will be reset at the beginning of each round.
The Chamber said the winner will be announced during the Kansas Manufacturing Summit on Tuesday, Oct. 6, at the Kansas Star Casino. It said the top four companies will be invited to display their products at the summit. It may be difficult for Custom Dredge Works to display their products since a typical Cutter Suction Dredge can weigh up to 700,000 lbs, and be approximately 140 feet in length.
Good luck to all the nominees!
