Kessler Crane Honored by State of Indiana

Plymouth - Marshall County's own Kessler Crane is one of only thirty-three companies from across Indiana that has earned a place in Indiana's sixth annual field of 'Companies to Watch.'


The accolade, presented by the Indiana Economic Development Corporation, the Indiana Small Business Development Center network and the Edward Lowe Foundation, recognizes the state's privately held businesses that employ six to 150 full-time employees and have between $750,000 to $100 million in annual revenue or capital.

Kessler was named after the evaluation of 300 nominations for the awards and  was chosen along with companies from industries ranging from biotech research and robotic part design to gourmet flavor manufacturing and automotive safety.

"Kessler Crane embodies the entrepreneurial spirit," said Jay Bahr, Executive Director of the Marshall County Economic Development Corporation. "Kessler Crane demonstrates what it takes to stand out in the marketplace. Because we offer a low-cost of doing business combined with a skilled workforce, companies    of all sizes know that they can exercise a competitive advantage in Marshall County."

Kessler Crane and all 33 'Companies to Watch' will be honored at an August 22 ceremony at the Indiana Roof Ballroom in Indianapolis. Tickets for the ceremony and dinner are still available and may be purchased online at or by calling 888.472.3244.
