Editors note: In 2016, the Greater Wilmington Business Journal launched an annual awards contest to highlight manufacturers, makers, artisans and designers in the region in conjunction with its WilmingtonBiz Conference and Expo. While this year’s MADE Award winners will again be recognized as part of the upcoming event, the Business Journal is expanding its MADE focus year-round. Each month in the print edition, we’ll feature a locally based company making goods and products in the Cape Fear region.
