Iron Mountain, Michigan (October 12, 2020) — New hunting blind and stand manufacturer – Orion® Hunting Products – is receiving statewide recognition for their Modular Hunting Blinds and Stands after being nominated for the 2020 “Coolest Thing Made in Michigan” hosted by the Michigan Manufacturers Association (MMA).
This “Coolest Thing Made in Michigan” is part of MMA’s annual recognition of the exceptional products made across the State of Michigan and celebration of the contributions that manufacturers make to Michigan’s economy and local communities. Twenty-seven Michigan- made products from around the state are included in this year’s competition.
Orion® Hunting Products was founded and built by engineers that wanted to improve on the traditional hunting blinds and hunting stands available on the market and improve on safety and comfort of hunting in rugged terrain and cold temperature. The safety measures incorporated into our Orion® blinds and stands allow hunters of all ages to get out there without risking an accident.
Orion® hunting blinds are modular and fully insulated with an exterior surrounded in aluminum and an interior covered in carpet – ceiling, walls and floor. No tools are required for assembly. It sits on an all-steel elevated tower stand with stair option – the safest way to enter a blind.
“The coolest thing about these modular blinds is, at 40-pounds/panel, they can be brought panel-by-panel to the deepest part of the woods to hunt where the big bucks are,” remarks Beau Anderson, president of Orion® Hunting Products. “No heavy equipment needed to set up your hunting post with our products.”
In Round 1, open from Monday, Oct. 12, through Friday, Oct. 23, 2020, anyone can vote daily for up to four products at coolestthing.mimfg.org. These votes determine which products make it into the Top Ten in Round 2. The winner of the “Coolest Thing Made in Michigan” will be announced during the virtual MFG Excellence Awards event in January.
