STATEHOUSE (April 11, 2018) — Local businesses on Wednesday at the Statehouse received the Governor’s Half Century Business Award for their contributions to the community, according to State Rep. Cindy Kirchhofer (R-Beech Grove).

Kirchhofer said Krukemeier Machine & Tool, in operation since 1946, and United Consulting, in operation since 1965, were both recognized for their longevity and sustained investment in the community. 

“Local businesses play an integral role in our state’s economy,” Kirchhofer said. “Employers like Krukemeier Machine & Tool and United Consulting provide many resources to our community including career building and service projects. Remaining in operation for more than 50 years is an impressive feat, and our community is fortunate to have such exemplary businesses.” 

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 demonstrated a commitment to community service. Visit www.iedc.in.gov to learn more.
