The Ford Meter Box Co. among first companies
The Indiana Manufacturers Assn. (IMA) inducted a select group of companies into its newly created Indiana Manufacturers Hall of Fame. Manufacturers, business leaders, and policymakers from across the state met in Indianapolis to honor companies that have made longstanding contributions to the development of a healthy, dynamic industrial environment in Indiana. The Ford Meter Box Co. is pleased to be among the select group of companies to be inducted.
“Manufacturing is one of the main drivers of Indiana’s economy, representing 30% of Indiana’s gross domestic product,” said IMA President Brian Burton. “We are pleased to induct the Ford Meter Box Co. Inc. into our Indiana Manufacturers Hall of Fame in this inaugural year.”
Ford Meter Box Co. President Steve Ford said that credit for such an honor should be accredited to prior generations that persevered during the firm’s 118-year history and to those who continue to build products and offer manufacturing support today.
“At a time when job-related dialogues in the public square seem to emphasize a knowledge economy over a manufacturing economy, it’s gratifying to see that the two aren’t mutually exclusive in Indiana,” said Ford.
