Eleven companies throughout the state have been inducted into the Indiana Manufacturers Hall of Fame. The Indiana Manufacturers Association honorees cover the state in cities from Michigan City to Jeffersonville. The organization says the Hall of Fame companies have contributed to Indiana’s "healthy, dynamic environment" and the state’s economic well-being.
The event was held last week at the Biltwell Event Center in Indianapolis and also included the unveiling of the 2017 Indiana Manufacturing Survey from Katz Sapper & Miller LLP and Indiana University, which showed an overall positive outlook, but identified multiple challenges that could affect continued growth.
The Class of 2017 includes:
- Batesville Casket
- Clabber Girl Corp. in Terre Haute

- Hill-Rom Co. Inc. in Batesville
