Sponsored by the Indiana Economic Development Corp., the Governor’s Century and Half Century Business Awards honor state companies that have remained in operation for 50 or 100 consecutive years and have demonstrated a commitment to community service.


“We are proud to be selected by Gov. Holcomb and the IEDC for recognition of our long history of service,” Ben Duke, general manager of Godfrey and Hurricane, said in a statement. “While our products may be marketed globally, we have always felt a powerful connection to our community, and every one of our employees is part of a strong team.”
