The innovative company enters the pre-eminent list of the 50 fastest
growing technology companies in Canada
LEVIS, QC, Sept. 25 /CNW Telbec/ - Creaform, developer and manufacturer
of the Handyscan 3D self-positioning handheld laser scanners, is extremely
proud to announce that it has ranked 22nd fastest growing technology company
in Canada - the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 - based on the percentage of
revenue growth over five years. This prestigious prize awarded by Deloitte
makes Creaform the fastest growing Quebec technology company outside the
Metropolitan Montréal, and highlights and confirms the leadership of the
company in the 3D scanning field.
"Transforming technological innovation into business success is hard, and
it's especially difficult to sustain such rapid revenue growth over five
years. Creaform has rapidly built a highly successful company in the Canadian
technology industry and we applaud its dedication and ability to transform
vision into reality," said Pierre Brodeur, Leader of Deloitte's Technology,
Media & Telecommunications Industry Group in Montreal.
"Canadian technology companies have some of the highest revenue growth in
North America, while playing in some of the world's largest, most competitive
and exciting market sectors," explains Brodeur."Outstanding companies such as
Creaform demonstrate the incredible business acumen and entrepreneurial spirit
that fuel the Canadian technology industry."
It is with greatest pride that André Couture, Finance VP, has accepted
the award during the ceremony held last night in Montreal. "Such an award
comes as a reward for Creaform's innovative and cooperation spirit, and for
the passion and dedication of our employees over the years. We are extremely
proud of Creaform's expansion, and that the company is now recognized as a
national and worldwide company", he says.
Armed with this national recognition, Creaform is committed in building
on the momentum. Besides, the introduction last August of the VIUscan(TM), the
very first truly portable color laser scanner of its kind on the market and
the fourth scanner of the Handyscan 3D line-up, shows well the innovative and
bold spirit that drives the company.
