BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – The Bloomington (Ind.) Chamber of Commerce recognized the Indiana Limestone Company last month as its Large Business of the Year for 2017.

The quarrier/producer is a leader in the production of highly valued Indiana limestone, which has been an elite building material for more than a century.

"We were excited to recognize Indiana Limestone Company and our other honorees at the chamber's Annual Meeting and Community Awards," said Anne Bono, interim President and CEO and Director of Advocacy and Public Policy. "The individuals and organizations who were honored have demonstrated their commitment to our business community, their colleagues and the Bloomington area. It's our pleasure to share their stories and celebrate their achievements with our members."

"We're honored and privileged to have been considered for this award," said Tom Quigley, Indiana Limestone president/CEO. "Bloomington is an incredible, thriving community, full of talented and dedicated individuals. We're proud to be part of it, and we appreciate the support that the camber gives Indiana Limestone and the entire business community here."

"People will connect us with a lot of monumental buildings in North America," said Duffe Elkins, the company's COO. "We can talk about the Empire State Building, the Pentagon, the National Constitution Center, and two thirds of all the state capitals.

“People recognize us for that, but what I think many don't know is that we provide a lot of raw materials to fabricators all over the country, and we also fabricate a line of hardscape products. So we're pretty vertically oriented, from raw materials to finished products."
