“Today, we honor Indiana businesses that have withstood the test of time, helping to drive Indiana’s economy forward,” Holcomb said during a ceremony at the Indiana Statehouse March 27. “I am thrilled to celebrate this year’s honorees and their integral role in building one of the nation’s best business climates. Together, I’m confident we will continue to take Indiana to the next level, ensuring Indiana is the best place to start a business, grow a business and get a job.”

O’Malias Living, one of the largest hearth retailers in the Midwest, was founded 51 years ago in Hamilton County. It provides a wide range of services and products, including  fireplaces and heating and air conditioning equipment. It also offers a growing line of outdoor living products,

“While O’Malia’s was recognized for our legacy, it is our future that is most exciting,”  O’Malia’s Living President Scott Horvath said.


According to Horvath, O’Malia’s Living has seen significant growth in its outdoor living division, which includes patio furniture, fire pits and outdoor heaters and grills, including the popular Big Green Egg.

“Our legacy has allowed us to pick and choose some of the best manufacturers in the nation to represent,” Horvath said.

Horvath said the key to the company’s success is family style service.

“We are so proud to have the opportunity to create family memories for our neighbors for over 50 years and look forward to what we can bring to the community over the next 50 years,” Horvath said.
