Sunright America Inc. was presented with an Economic Development and Growth through Entrepreneurship award, recognizing the company as an established business in Indiana, according to a media release from the office of state Rep. Milo Smith, R-Columbus.
The EDGE awards are hosted by the Indiana Small Business Development Center and were presented Tuesday by Lt. Gov. Sue Ellspermann at the Indiana Statehouse in Indianapolis. Twenty small businesses were recognized across the state, 10 as “emerging” businesses and 10 as “established.”
“I think that Sunright America is a very distinctive choice to receive the EDGE award,” Smith said in the release.
“Their company provides not only a good product to our community and state but also a source of jobs and income for so many people.”
Based in Columbus, Sunright America produces and supplies nuts and bolts to automobile suppliers across the state, among other businesses.
The EDGE awards are presented to small businesses that have a positive and measurable impact on the formation, growth and sustainability of commerce in Indiana.
“Indiana’s business climate is growing and thriving because of companies like Sunright America,” Smith said. “I commend Sunright America on their business ethic and look forward to seeing the company grow and expand even further.”
