Ports of Indiana


Marvin Ferguson has served the Ports of Indiana Commission since his appointment by Governor Evan Bayh in 1993. After several years in the steel industry, he founded the Ferguson Steel Co. in 1972. During the 1970s and 1980s, Ferguson Steel grew rapidly, increasing its market share by providing unique design-and-build services to emerging Indianapolis contractors and developers. Although Ferguson Steel has done work on a national and international basis, it has focused on Central Indiana and Southwestern Ohio. Indianapolis buildings framed by Ferguson Steel include the 25-story NBD Bank Building, the Farm Bureau Building downtown and the Golden Rule Insurance Company in Park 100. In Cincinnati, Ferguson Steel has also framed the 35-story 312 Walnut Street and the 25-story 312 Elm Street buildings. In 1992, Ferguson sold his stock in the company. Ferguson and his wife Bronwen live in Indianapolis.
