Lévis, Québec, October 20, 2009 - Creaform, developer and manufacturer of the Handyscan 3D self-positioning laser scanners and the HandyPROBE arm-free and portable CMM, today announced that it ranked number 45 on Deloitte's 2009 Technology Fast 500, a ranking of 500 of the fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and clean technology companies in North America. Rankings are based on percentage of fiscal year revenue growth during the five year period from 2004-2008. Creaform grew 4338 percent during this period.
Creaform's president, Mr. Charles Mony, credits the highly innovative character of Creaform's product lines - groundbreaking in the industry - and very high quality and reliability standards with the company's revenue growth over the past five years. He said, "Of course, our ranking in the Technology Fast 50 in Canada let us anticipate good results, but I must admit that I'm very impressed and extremely proud of Creaform's sky-rocketing progression. We succeeded in leaving our 2008 200th position behind to reach the 45th rank of this continental ranking this year, and I owe this to the whole team at Creaform and to their passion, innovation and determination."
Deloitte's Technology Fast 500 recognizes innovative companies that have broken down barriers to success and defied the odds with their remarkable five-year revenue growth. We congratulate Creaform on this accomplishment.
"With its impressive five-year growth, Creaform has earned its position among the fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and clean technology companies in North America," said John Ruffolo, National Leader, Technology, Media & Telecommunications Industry Group, Deloitte. "Deloitte is proud to honor Creaform for its achievement."
