Year in Review: Best of Utah Manufacturing

Utah 2016 readers' choice list a showcase of the modern manufacturing economy

The most-read profile at in 2016 was Park City’s Kodiak Cakes. Its legion of fans rallied to push it to #1 in CompanyWeek’s annual readers-choice list. 

It’s not a surprise. Across the U.S., manufacturing today is a dynamic mix of industries and companies, early-stage and legacy businesses that combined, are reshaping and energizing the sector. Kodiak follows in a long line of noteworthy Utah food manufacturers. The difference is that today, consumers lead the change, demanding more locally-made products. 

It’s the same in other industries, and Utah manufacturers are well positioned  in outdoor industry products, in consumer sectors like healthcare and wellness, in technology-driven fabrication, and more. 

Alicia Cunningham, the South Jordan-based editor of CompanyWeek Utah, offers her year-in-review favorites here. Bart Taylor, publisher and founder of CompanyWeek, favors companies and leaders who’ve laid a maker and manufacturing foundation. 

Collectively, our Year in Review lists offer a glimpse of more to come from Utah’s powerful manufacturing sector.
