Atlanta, GA, October 2, 2007 - (Quickparts) - Quickparts (http://www.quickparts.com), the leading provider of custom-manufactured plastic parts and manufacturing procurement technologies, has been named to Deloitte's prestigious Technology Fast 50 Program for Georgia, a ranking of the 50 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications and life sciences companies in Georgia by Deloitte & Touche USA LLP, one of the nation's leading professional services organizations. Rankings are based on the percentage revenue growth over five years from 2002-2006. Quickparts is ranked at Number 15, in the top 20 for the third consecutive year.
Ronald L. Hollis, PhD, Quickparts President and CEO, said, "In the product development market, Quickparts has successfully gone from a start-up company to one of the top producers of custom parts and procurement technologies. With 1300 percent growth, we are continuing our record as one of the fast-growth success stories in North America and acknowledged innovators in product development services."
This year's Georgia Technology Fast 50 Program is presented by Deloitte and sponsored by Kilpatrick Stockton LLP, NASDAQ and Technology Association of Georgia (TAG).
Dr. Hollis continued, "Using our patent-pending QuickQuote® instant quoting technology, Quickparts is an entirely new way of obtaining custom-manufactured plastic and metal parts online. Traditional methods of buying and sourcing parts take too much time, leave lots of room for error and are often a bigger hassle than anticipated."
Quickparts has streamlined the RFQ and sourcing process, allowing purchasing managers and part designers to buy parts 24x7.
To qualify for the Technology Fast 50, companies must have had operating revenues of at least $50,000 in 2002 and $5 million in 2006, be headquartered in Georgia, and be a company that owns proprietary technology or proprietary intellectual property that contributes to a significant portion of the company's operating revenues; or devotes a significant proportion of revenues to the research and development of technology. Using other companies' technology or intellectual property in a unique way does not qualify.
Companies from the 16 regional Technology Fast 50 programs in the United States and Canada are automatically entered in Deloitte's Technology Fast 50 program, which ranks North America's top 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications and life sciences companies.
