PA - John M. Lawlor, President and CEO of Keystone Fire Protection Co. is pleased to announce the company’s 2013 Future 50 award, presented by SmartCEO Magazine. The Future 50 Awards program recognizes 50 of the area’s fastest-growing companies based on employee and revenue growth over the past three years. The 2013 Future 50 winners collectively generate $1.23 billion in annual revenue and employ over 12,000 individuals in greater Philadelphia. This impressive group will be recognized in the January issue of SmartCEO magazine and celebrated at an awards ceremony on January 17, 2013. “We are honored to be awarded this special recognition,” says Lawlor. “The companies honored this year are growing in spite of the economic hardships we have all been facing. Keystone is thriving and rising above the rest, and we are excited to be part of moving our economy and this region forward. We’re especially excited to continue expanding into adjacent geographic areas outside of our direct footprint, including the Lehigh Valley and Berks County.” Over 550 local business executives and guests are expected to attend this year’s gala on January 17th, 2013 at the Drexelbrook to celebrate the winners and their achievements.
