Tonn and Blank Construction was honored for an incredible achievement as a staple in Indiana’s business community for the past 100 years. Governor Eric Holcomb awarded 38 Indiana companies and organizations with the Governor’s Century Business Award or Half Century Business Award in recognition of each company’s longevity and service to its employees, community and the state.

“Every year, the Century and Half-Century Awards remind me of the dedication and perseverance Hoosiers across the state bring to their businesses, and each year it is truly an honor to recognize these organizations that have withstood the test of time, navigated economic uncertainties and demonstrated unconditional commitment to their employees and communities across Indiana.”

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 1,200 Indiana companies have been recognized during the award’s 32-year history.
