Lehigh Valley Business today named 45 eastern Pennsylvania companies to its Fastest Growing Companies list for 2017 – companies identified as the region's most dynamic that have made significant contributions to the local economy.
The companies will be honored and their final rankings on the list disclosed at an awards breakfast and ceremony Wednesday, Oct. 25, at DeSales University, Center Valley.
“We are excited to see the continued growth of the companies in the Greater Lehigh Valley,” said Mike O’Rourke, Lehigh Valley Business publisher. “In this year’s event, we are pleased to have 18 new companies join our list. We look forward to revealing the rankings on Oct. 25.”
Tickets to the breakfast and awards ceremony may be purchased at www.lvb.com/fastestgrowingcompanies.
Nominated companies were ranked according to revenue growth over a three-year period, with both dollar and percentage increases taken into consideration.
To be eligible, companies had to be for profit-entities based in the Greater Lehigh Valley. They must have had annual revenue of at least $500,000 each of the past three years and an increase in revenue in 2016 when compared to 2014.
This awards program is presented by Baker Tilly, which calculated the list. The event also is sponsored by the Lehigh Valley Economic Development Corp., ESSA Bank & Trust and MassMutual of Eastern Pennsylvania.
