Meeting Draws Industry Leaders and Highlights Strength of Indiana Manufacturing Sector 

Indianapolis, Indiana On October 19, 2016, manufacturers, business leaders, and policymakers from across the state met in Indianapolis to honor those companies that have made outstanding contributions to the development of a healthy, dynamic environment in Indiana, and to the state’s overall economic well-being. Allison Payment Systems is excited to be among the select group of companies acknowledged at this first-of-its-kind event, and honored to have been selected as an inductee into the newly created Indiana Manufacturers Hall of Fame.

According to Indiana Manufacturers Association (IMA) President Brian Burton, “Manufacturing is one of the main drivers of Indiana’s economy, representing 30% of Indiana’s gross domestic product. Allison Payment Systemsis a perfect example of a company that has not only demonstrated its long-term dedication to Indiana manufacturing, but also through its continued support of the IMA, with its overarching goal to protect, support, and grow manufacturing. We are pleased to induct Allison Payment Systems into our Indiana Manufacturers Hall of Fame in this inaugural year.”

Allison Payment Systems President and CEO, JP Thomas stated of the IMA induction, “We are so proud of this recognition from the IMA.  It highlights the dedication and commitment of the Allison Payment Systems team throughout its storied 128-year history.  APS has continued to evolve through the years and we are quite proud of the innovations that have kept us at the forefront of the personalized customer communications market with complete solution offerings ranging from print to mobile.”

The Hall of Fame Luncheon was keynoted by former Indiana Governor and current Purdue University President Mitch Daniels. In addition, Katz, Sapper & Miller LLP, along with IU professors Dr. Mark Frohlich and Dr. Steve Jones, presented The 2016 Manufacturing Survey results. The results show that although manufacturing performance remains stable and the business climate is exemplary in the Hoosier state, regulatory burdens and a shortage of skilled workers continue to be a major concern for Hoosier manufacturers.
