The Triad’s 50 Fastest-Growing, Private Companies of 2018
Graphic Components Ranked #28 in the 2018 FAST 50
Triad Business Journal recognizes the leading private companies based in the Piedmont Triad region that build up the local economy year after year by investing, growing, expanding and hiring. They announced the 2018 Fast 50 recipients, the list of the 50 fastest-growing privately held companies in the Triad.
Smith Leonard, the accounting sponsor, has verified and ranked the nominated companies.
One of the most revealing aspects of this year’s recipients is the diversity of the industries represented. Our list ranges from manufacturers to furniture firms to construction companies. The technology sector is also represented, along with transportation, logistics, staffing, retail and professional services.
To be considered, companies must be for-profits with their U.S. headquarters based in the Triad. They must have completed three full fiscal years and had $2 million or more in revenues in 2017. Smith Leonard verifies company revenues for a three-year window and then ranks the companies using a formula that considers both dollar and percentage growth.
