Washington County Daily News: How cool is that? Helgesen, HoopMaster products nominated for Coolest Thing in Wisconsin

Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce (WMC) and Johnson Financial group announced on Wednesday that over 100 products have been nominated for this year’s Coolest Thing Made in Wisconsin contest, including two made in Washington County, and the first round of voting begins on Monday.

Helgesen Industries in Hartford was nominated for their Durapro Trailer, a trailer for dumping and hauling, and HoopMaster in Germantown was nominated for their Mighty Hoop, an embroidery tool. However, both companies said that they have no clue who nominated them, but are thankful for the honor and privilege to be included in this contest.

The Durapro Trailer and Mighty Hoop will now be stacked up against a field of products that includes “mining equipment, yachts, an EV fire truck, cheese curds, a home generator, beef jerky, sports complex lighting, frozen pizzas, a cargo ship, intermodal chassis, and much, much more,” according to the release.
