Sixty-four local businesses will be celebrated for their contribution to Grant County’s economy at the annual Investor’s Appreciation Awards.
Each year, the Grant County Economic Growth Council and STAR Financial Bank host an Investor Appreciation Awards to thank, honor and celebrate businesses that invested at least $25,000 into Grant County’s economy over the past year.
Over 20 years of hosting this event, the Growth Council and STAR have honored over 2.7 billion dollars of total investment in Grant County.
According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, Grant County’s GDP rose 11.7% in 2019.
One company that’s invested heavily is Wiley Metals. The company invested in Grant County in 2019 by constructing a new building, purchasing a new press brake, and providing advanced the professional development of forty individuals in partnership with Purdue University.
While local businesses like Wiley Metals strive to strengthen their business ventures, they also support Grant County’s overall economic flourishing.
At the 2020 Investor’s Appreciation Luncheon, each honoree will receive an award, show pictures of their investment, and have the opportunity to talk about their company’s new projects and progress.
“It is exciting to honor our local business partners,” Brett Carey, the Market President of STAR Financial Bank, said of the event. “Every business’ hard work has positively impacted Grant County, as seen in the county’s steep GDP increase.”
The public is encouraged to celebrate Grant County’s local businesses at the Investor Appreciation Awards on March 10 at 11:30 p.m.
The cost is $20 per attendee.
