Made In Utah

The manufacturing companies of Utah are the unsung heroes. The invisible talent that creates, molds, and betters our lives on

a daily basis. From the time we get up in the morning until the time we go to bed at night, we are surrounded by “made in Utah” products. These employees silently drive the economy. They quietly improve our lives and impact our days, in many cases without us even recognizing it. Their contribution to the state economy is significant. However, I would submit their contribution to our quality of life and the way we enjoy our lives is far greater.

As a way of calling attention to our local manufacturing companies, we’re excited to share their stories with you, on our weekly TV segment Made4Utah, which airs every Thursday, between 4PM-5PM, on Channel 4. Thank you to our sponsor, Tunex Complete Car Care (also a Utah company), for their generous underwriting.

Todd Bingham, UMA President
