Makers Madness Champion Crowned

After eight weeks of competition, the Self-Regulating Traffic Signal Heater manufactured by Termico Technologies in Elk Grove Village has been declared the winner of the Illinois Manufacturers’ Association’s (IMA) second annual “Makers Madness” contest, giving them the coveted title of The Coolest Thing Made in Illinois.

Termico Technologies’ Self-Regulating Traffic Signal Heater uses conductive particles to heat traffic signals so they remain free of ice and snow and visible for drivers. This innovative technology has become critical for keeping motorists safe during winter weather.

The Self-Regulating Traffic Signal Heater was chosen by voters out of a field of 311 individual products from across Illinois. There were over 300,000 votes cast throughout IMA’s Makers Madness competition.
