The list of the 25 fastest growing companies in the Greater Lehigh Valley has been unveiled and the lineup of businesses is a scintillating smorgasbord that produces everything from cigars to specialty chemicals and custom formulations or provides services ranging from engineering to financial.
The qualifying companies have been notified by the accounting and auditing firm ParenteBeard of Allentown and Lehigh Valley Business, which will fete the finalists on Oct. 16, during a special luncheon awards ceremony.
The awards ceremony will be a key part of this year’s 2012 EXPO which will be held at the Agri-Plex in Allentown and feature dozens of booths, as well as a number of executive-worthy luxury cars.
“It’s long overdue recognition for companies in the Lehigh Valley,” noted Lehigh Valley Business publisher Troy Bausinger. “We created the forum and are very happy with the response we received.
“Being able to tie the Fastest-Growing Companies luncheon into our EXPO is a big win for all business decision makers in the Lehigh Valley. Come to the Agri-Plex Oct 16th and you’ll take part in an effective business event.”
This marks the first year that Lehigh Valley Business has singled out the region’s fastest-growing companies in such a way.
“Given the nation’s economy over the past four years, I believe it’s especially rewarding for these companies,” Bausinger said. “It shows the Lehigh Valley’s business environment is robust.”
