Atlanta, GA, June 2, 2004 - Quickparts, the leading provider of custom-manufactured plastic and metal parts, has been named to Entrepreneur Magazine’s 10th Annual Hot 100, America’s fastest growing new businesses. In the June 2004 issue of Entrepreneur Magazine, Quickparts was listed with a rank of #86 overall.
The 10th Annual Hot 100 listing of fast-growing new businesses was compiled with assistance from D&B, a provider of global business information, tools and insight. Each company that was considered for Entrepreneur’s Hot 100 list was founded no earlier than 1999, and had more than $1 million in annual sales for 2003. Entrepreneur measured each company’s sales growth from the date of inception, listing the businesses in growth order.
Quickparts was founded in 1999 to solve a fundamental issue that was paralyzing the product development community. The time needed to generate manual price quotes for prototyping custom parts was inhibiting the development of new products. With Quickparts’ patent-pending QuickQuote® technology, design engineers get instant pricing quotations from 3D CAD data at the push of the button with custom parts shipped next-day.
Since the launch of Quickparts.com in 2000, Quickparts has earned the business of over 3,000 customers and has delivered more than 100,000 instant quotes. Quickparts’ revenue has grown over 8,000% since its inception.
Dr. Ronald L. Hollis, President and CEO of Quickparts, credits the success with the company’s core ideologies, “What separates Quickparts from our competitors is our commitment to discipline. Quickparts is focused on finding the best people, developing systems and processes, and utilizing technology wherever possible to make the product development and procurement process as smooth and easy as possible for design engineers.”
