Raleigh, N.C.—As NC residents look for gift ideas for friends, co-workers, and family this year, one place to find some inspiration is the NC Chamber’s first-ever NC Holiday Gift Guide featuring made-in-NC products.
Products featured in the NC Holiday Gift Guide come from regions and cities across the state.
This year’s list includes nominees from this year’s NC Chamber ‘Coolest Thing Made in NC’ competition. While only one company was able to take home first place, the creation of this guide was a way to feature all the one-of-a-kind and innovative products being manufactured right here in North Carolina.
“The items in this guide reflect products that we think we make great stocking stuffers or presents for anyone on your list—even those hard-to-buy-for relatives or friends,” said Gary Salamido, president and CEO of the NC Chamber. “It is an honor to applaud the accomplishments of this extremely innovative industry.”
What began in the 1880s as a few textile mills across North Carolina, has evolved into an impressive technologically driven industry that generates nearly one-fifth of the gross state product and employs more than 1 in 10 of the state’s workforce. More statistics on manufacturing in NC can be found here.
