Choose Green as Our Legacy
Our company recently moved to a new location in downtown Crown Point, and we quickly embraced our new home as our own.

In our first days in the new office, our staff went to lunch together on the square and discussed the abundant sense of community and pride among the merchants and patrons. Images of bulldogs - the Crown Point High School mascot - are prevalent as are signs on bulletin boards for church functions, fundraisers for neighbors in need and city-sponsored events.
