Entry Description
INDIANAPOLIS (Dec. 2, 2013) - Governor Mike Pence honored 12 Indiana companies for longevity and community service this evening by awarding them the Governor's Century Business Award during the Indiana Historical Society's Founders Day Dinner.  

"By remaining dedicated to constant improvement and committed to founding principles, the roots of these 12 Hoosier businesses extend deeply throughout the communities they call home," said Governor Mike Pence. "Their perseverance is a testament to the work ethic and drive that make Indiana a state that works. Our state is a better place because of their decisions a century or more ago to launch a business and we thank them for their continued commitment to this state." 

The 12 Indiana companies received Century Business Awards for being in business a minimum of 100 consecutive years, including one company for 150 years in business. Nominated by individuals or organizations within the same community, the award honors Indiana's well-established companies and their outstanding contributions to the economic growth and prosperity of the state. Nearly 400 companies from across Indiana have been recognized during the 23-year history of the award.

Messenger LLC (100 years)

About IEDC 
Created in 2005 to replace the former Department of Commerce, the Indiana Economic Development Corporation is governed by a 12-member board chaired by Governor Mike Pence. Victor Smith serves as the Indiana Secretary of Commerce and Eric Doden is the chief executive officer of the IEDC.  

The IEDC oversees programs enacted by the General Assembly including tax credits, workforce training grants and public infrastructure assistance. All tax credits are performance-based. Therefore, companies must first invest in Indiana through job creation or capital investment before incentives are paid. A company who does not meet its full projections only receives a percentage of the incentives proportional to its actual investment. For more information about IEDC, visit
