Hulman & Company is an American private, family-owned, company founded in 1850 by Francis Hulman as a wholesale foods supplier of groceries, tobacco, and liquor. Headquartered in Terre Haute, Indiana. [1] Throughout the early half of the 20th century, Hulman & Co. became nationally known for its Clabber Girl baking powder which it began producing in 1899. In 1945, the company purchased the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, in what many thought was an unusual investment for a company with a rich history in the food and beverage industry. The company also owns a television production company, Wabash Valley Broadcasting, dba IMS Productions, which does in-house work for their Indy Racing League, LLC, the teams in the organization, and in the past, produced NBA Indiana Pacers and Professional Bull Riders broadcasts.
