Indiana Governor Honors Indiana Furniture for Business Longevity and Service to Hoosier Workforce
On July 21, Indiana Governor, Eric J. Holcomb honored Indiana Furniture with the Governor’s Century Business Award in recognition of the company’s longevity and service to its employees, community, and the state. “It’s an honor to recognize Hoosier business leaders who have been creating quality opportunities for Hoosiers and running their businesses in Indiana for more than 100 years,” Gov. Holcomb said. “Through a strong dedication to their employees, their businesses, and their communities, this company exemplifies the pioneering spirit and perseverance that will keep Indiana on the path to success for centuries to come.” Along with Indiana Furniture, 76 companies and organizations were recognized. 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. More than 1,500 Indiana companies have been recognized during the award’s 29-year history. “As we celebrate 115 years, we couldn’t be more honored to receive this award,” stated Max Verkamp, President and CEO of Indiana Furniture. “The strong foundation and values set forth by our founders coupled with the unwavering focus on our solutions and our people provides us with the stability and passion to continue being successful, allowing us to better serve the communities in which we work and live.” The Governor’s Awards ceremony, which was scheduled to occur in Spring 2020, was canceled due to the COVID-19 outbreak. This year’s award recipients will be invited to participate in the 2021 ceremony.
