Draper Recognized by Indiana Governor

The diverse consumer electronics manufacturer has received honors for its community service and its business longevity.

Spiceland, IN–Draper Inc. has received a Governor’s Century Business Award from Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels. The award honors Indiana businesses that have been in operation for 100 years and have a history of community service. Since its start in 1902 as a window shade manufacturer, Draper has grown into the world’s second-largest projection screen manufacturer, and a major player in window shades, gymnasium equipment and lifts and mounts product categories.

“These companies are the foundation of economic growth for our state. Home-grown Indiana companies like these provide the stability and longstanding community involvement that typifies our traditional Hoosier values,” said Governor Daniels, at a ceremony honoring Draper and other award recipients.

Nominated by individuals or organizations within the same community, the awards honor Indiana’s well-established companies and their outstanding contributions to the economic growth and prosperity of the state.

“We’re grateful for the recognition,” said Draper President John Pidgeon, “but we in turn want to recognize all of our employees, past and present. They are the ones who made Draper the solid business that it is and has been for more than a century.”
