The Indiana Chamber of Commerce recently announced the second annual list of Indiana’s Best Place to Work in Manufacturing, and it was great to see that three Southern Indiana businesses made the list.

The winning companies were determined through employer reports and surveys. The 17 companies on the list range in Hoosier employee count from as low as 32 all the way to more than 900. Indiana Chamber President and CEO Kevin Brinegar says...

Building on our popular Best Places to Work event, we’re excited to continue this program to highlight manufacturers that are striving to improve the lives of their team members. These companies embody the traits of a good employer, which starts with valuing and respecting workers.

Which Southern Indiana Companies Made the List?

A big shout-out and congratulations is in order for Crosspoint Polymer Technologies in Evansville, Kimball Electronics in Jasper, and Nix Companies in Poseyville.

The rest of the list includes companies from Goshen, Indianapolis, Lebanon, Muncie, Noblesville, Portland, Sharpsville, Syracuse, Tipton, Urbana, and Warsaw. All companies that participated in the 2023 program receive an in-depth evaluation identifying strengths and weaknesses according to their employees. In turn, this report can be used in developing or enhancing employee retention and recruitment programs.

While we know which companies made the list, we still don't know where they rank on the list. That information will be unveiled at the 2023 Best IN Manufacturing Awards Luncheon coming up on December 13 - that's also where the winner of the latest Coolest Thing Made in Indiana competition will also be announced.

38 Celebrities Who Were Born in Indiana

There are a bunch of famous folks that everyone knows were born in Indiana, but there are even more that you didn't know about. Most of this list is arranged in alphabetical order, except for the handful of celebrities born in our neck of the woods here in southern Indiana. I gotta give them a little preferential treatment.
