In January, the third annual Made in Brevard Showcase was held in Port Canaveral’s Cruise Terminal 6, where an impressive diversity of local manufacturers displayed products from miniature components to 3D designs to turbine-powered race cars.
The Economic Development Commission of Florida’s Space Coast (EDC), Cocoa Beach Regional Chamber of Commerce, Melbourne Regional Chamber of East Central Florida, Greater Palm Bay Chamber of Commerce and Titusville Area Chamber of Commerce joined to promote and celebrate companies that make products within Brevard County.
Port Commissioner Wayne Justice was the keynote speaker for the evening’s “Celebrating Manufacturing” EDC Investor Meeting.
At the event, Palm Bay-based Larson Motorsports, Inc. was recognized as Innovation Company of the Year for its high-performance-vehicle development. Cocoa-based Paragon Plastics was named Manufacturer of the Year for its significant local investment in new facilities and an expanded work force.
