Northeast Indiana businesses recognized by governor

Greater Fort Wayne Business Weekly

Twelve northeast Indiana companies were among 25 Indiana companies that April 19 received Governor’s Century and Half Century Business Awards, recognizing them for their longevity and service to their employees, communities and the state.

“As Indiana celebrates its bicentennial, we honor the companies that have helped build a state with a record employment and continued economic growth,” Gov. Mike Pence said in a news release from the Indiana Economic Development Corp.

 “These companies, which have been growing and adding jobs here for at least 50 or 100 years, are an engine of our state’s economy. Their longevity sets a standard for excellence and has laid a foundation for each and every company choosing to start or grow here in Indiana today. Each one of these companies is an important part of our history and I’m confident they will play a key role in our state’s future.”

 The Governor’s Century and Half Century Business Awards honor Hoosier businesses that have remained in operation for a minimum of 100 or 50 consecutive years, and have also demonstrated a commitment to community service.
