Ford: Local Businesses Honored by Gov. Holcomb

STATEHOUSE (April 11, 2018) – Today, Gov. Eric Holcomb honored two local businesses during the Governor’s Century and Half Century Business Awards Ceremony at the Statehouse, said State Sen. Jon Ford (R-Terre Haute).

Sycamore Engineering, Inc., founded in 1960 by the Dinkel family, provides mechanical, electrical, plumbing, telecommunication, engineering and design, and carpentry services. This company was honored with a Half Century Business Award.

Some of the latest projects in the company’s portfolio include work on the Sisters of Providence, Sullivan Civic Center, Vigo County Courthouse, St. Benedict Catholic Church and Union Hospital.

“It is an incredible feat to have a successful business for 58 years,” Ford said. “Sycamore Engineering, Inc. has played an integral role in the economic success of our community and all of Indiana. Congratulations to this company and the Dinkel family on this great accomplishment.”

Terre Haute Savings Bank (THSB), a community bank, was honored with a Century Business Award.

THSB has eight locations, serving people in Terre Haute, West Terre Haute, Riley and Brazil. This bank is governed by a board of directors comprised of local business and community leaders who are committed to supporting and investing in the local community.

“Terre Haute Savings Bank has been a part of our community for over 100 years,” Ford said. “Their partnership and support to local organizations helps improve our community and really proves that they are dedicated to making Vigo County and surrounding areas a better place to live and work.”

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 demonstrated a commitment to community service.
