Customers Bank of Wyomissing was named the Fastest Growing Company on Wednesday at the 2013 Lehigh Valley Business Expo in Allentown.
It was the second consecutive year that the bank took home top honors at the event, held at the Agri-Plex Expo Center at Allentown Fairgrounds.
Twenty-five companies were honored for their growth over the past four years.
According to David Schankweiler, CEO of Journal Multimedia – who presented the awards – the average four-year growth rate was 160 percent for the honored companies. Journal Multimedia is the parent company of Lehigh Valley Business, which organized the expo.
The honored companies ranged from a manufacturer of cosmetic products to a dental office to Follett Corp., an Easton-based ice manufacturer.
The depth and breadth of the companies being honored showed the expansiveness of the growth of industry in the region, said Don Cunningham, president and CEO of the Lehigh Valley Economic Development Corp., one of the sponsors of the event.
The awards luncheon was one of the highlights of the day-long expo, which also featured a health care symposium, free lectures and 120 exhibitors.
