The Huntington County Chamber of Commerce held its annual dinner ‘Celebrate Huntington at 175 Years on Tuesday, March 14. During the event the Chamber selected the Business of the Year. This year the Business of the Year award was presented to Teijin Automotive Technologies. Rick Doering, plant manager, was at the event to accept the award.
Teijin Automotive Technologies was selected for their investment and commitment to Huntington County, and to the many Huntington residents that call Teijin Automotive Technologies their place of employment.
Steve Kimmel, executive director of the Huntington County Chamber of Commerce, read to the more than 130 in attendance when presenting the award. “This year’s Business of the Year award goes to a company that began in August of 2010 with a groundbreaking that saw then Gov. Mitch Daniels attend and help break ground. Since the groundbreaking, this company has changed their name but continues to invest in Huntington County and the residents of our county through today. Teijin Automotive Technologies’ commitment to Huntington County has not gone unnoticed, as they continue to work on their $110 million dollar investment in the county.”
The Huntington County Chamber of Commerce and the board of directors congratulates Teijin Automotive Technologies and Rick Doering on being selected the 2023 Business of the Year award.
“We truly appreciate receiving this incredible honor from the Huntington County Chamber, especially in this milestone year as Huntington celebrates its 175th anniversary,” said Doering. He continued, “While we haven’t been around quite that long, our operations here in Huntington have come a long way since CSP took over a vacated Meridian facility back in 2010.”
“Now called Teijin Automotive Technologies, we have truly thrived in this community, which is why we continue to invest and grow in Huntington,” said Doering. “We have a hard-working, dedicated team of employees here who have made all of this possible, and I especially want to thank them for their ongoing commitment to our company and to this community.”
