PowerComm Inc. recognized as "Fast 50" company for third consecutive year



    EDMONTON, Jan. 10 /CNW/ - PowerComm Inc. (PCG:TSX) is extremely honored
to have again been named one of "The Fast 50" by Alberta Venture Magazine.
PowerComm was recognized as one of the fifty fastest growing companies in
Alberta in the over twenty million dollar category. PowerComm is ranked number
eleven this year - up from number twenty-five last year.
    Now in its tenth year, "The Fast 50" is a list of companies that have
achieved the most significant growth in assets, revenue, and employees over a
three-year period in two categories; over twenty million dollars in revenue
and under twenty million dollars in revenue.
    "This is the third year of being named to this highly competitive list
and it is no small feat to qualify once, let alone for three consecutive
years," said Wayne Rutherford, PowerComm President & CEO. "Being one of the
fastest growing companies in one of the fastest growing economic areas in the
world is a testament to the commitment and hard work of the entire
corporation," he continued.
    During the last year PowerComm Inc. completed its IPO and listed on the
Toronto Stock Exchange with the trading symbol PCG. The company also completed
three acquisitions in 2007 including the takeover of Nextron Inc., another
public company, and manufacturer of industrial heat trace controllers and
distributor of heat trace tape.
